As the demand for healthy meat alternatives grows, established businesses and start-ups like Terramino Foods are setting out to create sustainable burger options. While there are now many plant-based beef alternatives available to consumers—some of which that even "bleed" beetroot juice—Terramino Foods is putting its efforts into an earth-friendly "salmon" burger.

The alternative burger is said to smell, look and taste just like a classic fish burger, but it is made with sustainable fungi and algae. Additionally, the burger is said to have the same nutritional content as salmon.

The plant-based salmon burger has the potential to offer a solution to issues with conventional fish products, such as overfishing, traces of mercury, as well as the antibiotics often used on salmon farms.
