On the shelves of Russian stores there will be artificial minced fish - not maricultural, grown in marine cages, not aquaculture from ponds, but even more artificial, literally synthesized from sturgeon cells.

According to Askar Latyshev from ArtMeat, the material for "growing" minced meat in incubators is taken from fish fry using a biopsy. After this procedure, high protein stem cells are passed through the bioreactor and connected to the supply of nutrients. Actually, this bioreactor “grows” “fish” from the mixture in the process of microbiological synthesis. ArtMeat is now busy accelerating technology, searching for the fastest conditions for the "growth" of the mass.

It is possible that in three years time cutlets from such a “sturgeon” with pictures of wild sturgeons in the lower Volga in the highest quality resolution will appear on the shelves of supermarkets. By the way, why did you decide to start with sturgeons? Probably because sturgeon has the best PR of expensive fish. Next, for sure, will go salmon meatballs, pollock sausages and other delights from synthesized aquatic biological resources.

Now the technical regulation on the safety of fish and fish products, which came into force on September 1 of this year, requires customers to be informed about which fish is made from, where and when it was caught or grown, but buyers do not often pay attention to such data and generally for their availability.

Most of all, the news about the synthesized sturgeon minced was heard on the Days of the Far East in Moscow, when the regions presented the diversity and abundance of fish products and seafood.
