Microsynbiotix is a biotechnology company headquartered in Cork, Ireland that was founded by Antonio Lamb, Sebastian Cocioba, and Simon Jegan Porphy in 2016. The company is using transgenic microalgae to produce oral vaccines for problematic diseases within the aquaculture industry. Their oral vaccines are made to improve disease management (viral and bacterial), reduce fish mortality rates, and reduce the need of antibiotics for aquaculture food production. Microsynbiotix makes their vaccines by building synthetic vaccines and introducing them into microalgae which are loaded into bioreactors and grown into fish feed that can be fed to fish in aquaculture farms.
