German startup plans to bring cultivated seafood to the dinner table

2 min read


Cultivated seafood has edged closer to our plates after a German startup bagged fresh cash to bring the produce to market.

The Berlin-based Bluu Seafood this week announced it’s raised €16m in Series A funding. The company now plans to focus on gaining regulatory approval for its lab-grown cuisine, which is grown from fish cells.

According to Bluu, the process protects oceans, prevents harming animals, and ensures quality.

The startup says it’s also more energy efficient and robust than cultivated meat, as fish cells can be grown at room temperature and are more tolerant of life in bioreactors.

Crystals, jets, and magnets — is this how to make cooling greener?

Bluu now aims to bring its fish balls and fish fingers from the lab to the table.
