Cell-Cultivated Fish Partnerships

Wanda Fish Technologies Joins Forces with Tufts University

— March 24, 2022 — Eco
Wanda Fish Technologies, the Israeli foodtech startup "that produces a wide variety of delicious fish fillets using sustainable cell-cultivation practices," recently announced a new strategic partnership with Tufts University. The brand will collaborate with David Kaplan, Ph.D., a leading researcher in cellular agriculture, to research the cellular agriculture-based production of fish tissue.

Under the licensing agreement, Wanda Fish will gain exclusive rights to some of the intellectual property in fish cell cultivation developed by the Tufts researcher. The brand hopes that "the moves will significantly propel Wanda Fish's strategies for producing sustainable, tasty, cultivated fish fillets."

The move is crucial to providing fish protein to meet the global demand as fish populations continue to decrease due to climate change and pollution. "More than three billion people depend on the ocean and its surroundings for their living," stresses Dr. Daphna Heffetz, CEO of Wanda Fish. "Marine biodiversity is critical to the survival of people and our planet. Overfishing, as well as water pollution, is damaging the vast and vital ocean ecosystem. Many wild fish populations are sadly in decline.
