Ittinsect - Zero Ocean Impact Aquafeed


Ittinsect is a sustainable project with the mission of eliminating fishing not intended for direct human consumption. Aquaculture industry uses 15mln tons of wild fish as feed, a quarter of global fishing! Ittinsect makes aquaculture sustainable with a specialized feed based on enriched insect proteins. We are not insect farmers; we are a manufacture company developing a high moisture aquafeed using insects as main ingredient. The process is circular and replaces the expensive, extrusion method.
