Tunicate meal vs fish meal

Yearly fish meal production in EU, within EU28 countries, is 496.000 tonnes/year, assuming a protein concentration of 60-72%.

The Ciona cultivation yield in Swedish waters are 58 ton meal/ha, with a 43% protein content in dry matter.

If we aim to replace all fish meal : 130km2 are needed which equals an 11 x 11 km area

If we aim to exchange 20% of the fish meal proteins; then 26km2 are needed = 5 x 5 km area

We believe that is doable.
