Shift in Farmed Fish Feed May Impact Nutritional Benefits of Seafood

DEVIL partners at the University of Minnesota Institute on the Environment’s Global Landscapes Initiative collaborated on a new study estimating the environmental impacts associated with the plant-based feed used for aquaculture.

The team was led by Jillian Fry at Johns Hopkins University and the findings are published in the journal, Environment International.
