A useful learning and networking opportunity for anyone interested in alternative proteins: the Fish cell cultures: Opportunities for cellular agriculture free webinar on March 18. Here’s the description:
SWIM (Seafood Webinar and Informal Mixer) is a chance to catch up on the latest developments in alternative seafood and to connect with your colleagues. This time, we’ll be hearing from three experts in finfish cell culture about how they are applying learnings from their previous research to cultivated seafood. We will start with short talks from our three experts (9am EST / 2pm CET / 6:30pm IST) and then move to Meetaway for networking.

Meet the speakers:
Dr. Mukunda Goswami is a Principal Scientist at the ICAR-Central Institute of Fisheries Education (CIFE), Mumbai, India. Dr. Goswami has more than 20 years of experience in fisheries research and has led the establishment of a national repository of fish cell lines in India. He is now developing and characterizing fish cell lines from several indigenous fishes, starting with zebrafish as a model organism. Dr. Goswami will be speaking on the opportunities and challenges for cellular aquaculture as an alternative to conventional seafood.
Dr. Stephan Fischer, CEO, and Dr. Kristin Schirmer, Partner, develop alternative tests for fish by means of fish cell lines and fish embryos at aQuaTox-Solutions. During their presentation, they will explain how fish cell lines are derived and what properties they have. They will then provide examples of how these cell lines can be used to assess chemical risk, water quality, and improve aquaculture and fish health.
