Lily joins me today to discuss what’s really happening to our waters and the emerging trends in alternative fish products. She explains what aquaculture is and why it’s currently in hot water over ESG compliance. She describes the various hurdles that are preventing the fish industry from making fast progress in fish welfare and the social risks associated with the salmon aquaculture industry. Lily also shares what she’s excited about in the realm of lab-grown fish products.

"The terrestrial animals we farm feel stress and pain, and people are becoming a lot more conscious about it with regards to fish." - Lily Stuart
