BETTER FEED, BETTER FISH
BioFeyn's goal is to produce the most sustainable and nutrient-packed farmed fish on the market.
By optimizing existing ingredients that are already proven to be safe and sustainable, we add value for farmers, feed suppliers, and the environment.
THE FASTEST GROWING
Aquaculture now accounts for more than 50% of the fish that we eat. Yet as fish farming has intensified, so too have the challenges.
Recent years have seen astronomical losses across farmed species. The problem is made worse by inefficient delivery of essential compounds and nutrients. This over-use can also be polluting, erasing important gains achieved by otherwise environmentally-conscious aquaculture practices.
Collectively, billions of dollars in both direct and indirect damages result every year.
ANNUAL MARKET VALUE
CAGR: > 5%
While there is no one-size fits all solution, we believe we’ve come up with the next best thing. BioFeyn is pioneering a targeted, modular, delivery mechanism (what we call a “Feyn”) for compounds and nutrients that can be adapted to meet the most critical needs in the industry. The process is a simple one:
RELEASE & ACTION
We formulate the Feyn to prepare specialized and targeted blends
These purpose-built Feyns are
integrated into feed pellets
Enhanced feed is consumed, the Feyns released, and compounds delivered to targets
Delivering better health, better
sustainability, better profit
BioFeyn is committed to making a positive impact. Our technology addresses aquaculture sustainability challenges in a direct way by reducing waste and promoting the use of environmentally-friendly ingredients.
The BioFeyn team is broadly experienced in biological sciences, business, and sustainability. We share a common belief that solutions of the future will be driven by the translational application of science for the benefit of both people and the planet.
