Singapore’s Umami Meats is developing cultured fish meat such as eel, tuna, and snapper using cell culture technology. The development targets mainly high-end fish that cannot be farmed. NUProtein, a Tokyo startup, excels in growth factors for cell-free protein synthesis.
Umami Meats has a research system that uses digital models of cultured fish meat with artificial intelligence to improve quality. According to the company, it is currently making muscle cells and fat cells in separate culture systems, but in the future it aims to differentiate and co-culture both in a single culture system.
