VEGAN FISH AND FISH-FREE SEAFOOD
What is vegan fish? What is vegan seafood?
As with anything vegan, vegan fish and vegan seafood are made from products that are 100% animal-free. As veganism grows in popularity and availability, companies are stepping up their game to improve vegan foods to taste like the real thing. Although vegan beef, vegan chicken and vegan eggs tend to make more headlines; vegan fish and vegan seafood are steadily becoming more and more prevalent.Read More

BUSINESS INSIDER TODAY
Companies are trying to introduce vegan seafood. And what it’s like to try a high-end vegan food delivery service for a week.
STARTUPS ARE USING TOMATOES, EGGPLANT AND CARROTS TO IMPROVE FAKE FISH
Innovators are using tomatoes, eggplant, carrots, pea starch and an Asian root vegetable called konjac to make imitation smoked salmon, tuna, shrimp and sushi products, The Wall Street Journal reported.
In the past, fake seafood was made with soy and wheat gluten. But these companies are developing manufacturing processes and specialized machinery to better approximate the flakiness, texture and taste consumers are accustomed to experiencing with real tuna, salmon and shrimp products.Read More
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU’RE VEGAN AND EXPECTING
Being pregnant means life is growing inside you. So it’s no wonder that so many expectant mothers choose to have a vegan pregnancy, as there’s no kinder way to welcome new life into the world.

Yes and yes, according to Dr. Shannon M. Clark, a spokesperson for the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.Read More
SEAFOOD WITHOUT THE SUFFERING: TRY THESE GREAT VEGAN PRODUCTS
Attention, “pescatarians”: Fish are intelligent and feel pain. What’s more, fish flesh is toxic to humans, and the seafood industry is destroying the environment. There’s no need to participate in any of this when you can “catch” one of the many vegan seafood products available online or in grocery stores across the country today.Read More
FISH: THE FINAL FRONTIER IN FAKE MEAT
Burgers, chicken and hot dogs dominate the fast-growing, $684 million market for plant-based meat alternatives. Fish? Not so much.
That is starting to change as upstart companies invest in new ingredients, machinery and technologies that promise to make imitation tuna, salmon and shrimp smell, taste and appear more…fishy.Read More
NEARLY 1 MILLION SQUARE MILES OF ARCTIC OCEAN NOW PROTECTED FROM COMMERCIAL FISHING
Commercial fishing has just been banned in an area of the Arctic covering nearly one million square miles — about the size of the Mediterranean.
The Guardian reports that per the Central Arctic Ocean agreement signed in Greenland last Wednesday, commercial fishing will be prohibited for at least the next 16 years. While no companies currently fish there, rising global temperatures have melted areas previously covered in ice, allowing for ships to traverse the area. The U.S., Russia, Canada, Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Japan, South Korea, China, and the EU have all agreed to the commercial fishing ban.Read More

PLANT-POWERED ‘JACKASS’ STAR STEVE-O SMASHES FIRST TRIATHLON
Steve-O has come a long way since his early stunt-pulling days on “Jackass.” Though still a prankster at heart, the celebrity now puts much of his energy into activism, raising awareness, and most recently, completing triathlons with the boost of plant-based foods.
“I just got tenth place in my division at my first ever triathlon! Woohoo!!!” Steve-O wrote on Instagram to his 3.7 million followers. The achievement could be credited, in part, to vegan ultra-endurance athlete Rich Roll, who was seen training with Steve-O prior to the race.Read More

YOUR FISH TACOS JUST WENT PLANT-BASED
Meatless meat is on the rise. If you’re a plant-based eater then this is music to your ears. If you’re a Ron Swanson, bacon and eggs type, you might be skeptical. But hear us out.
First there was the Impossible Burger from Impossible Foods. They’ve made a legit, meat-free burger that certainly looks as good as they claim it tastes. But what do plant-based eaters do when that craving for fish tacos hits you hard? The answer: vegan seafood…Read More

THIS NEW COMPANY IS CREATING SUPER-REALISTIC VEGAN VERSIONS OF YOUR FAVORITE SEAFOOD STAPLES
So far, 2018 has been a really great year to be vegan.

THE BEST BURGER YOU’LL EVER HAVE IS MADE FROM PLANTS
There’s nothing like the first great bite of a wonderful burger, the lettuce crisp and ripe in your mouth, the bun pressed hard against your upper lip, the texture chewy but not too soft and the burger itself, a thick and juicy sensory smorgasbord. Well, that’s how it should be, but the McDonald’s generation has become used to expecting less than top-notch burger experiences. The limp patty, flabby bun, and squeezy cheese rarely live up to those glistening commercials where everything is perfectly arranged in a clever marketing ploy to start those salivary glands going even as you head tells you it’s a con. But no longer. Let’s celebrate the end of those sad little sandwiches and enter the era of epicurean burger bliss…Read More

VEGAN SEAFOOD IS ABOUT TO BECOME BIG BUSINESS–AND NOT A MOMENT TOO SOON
Plastic straws are the enemy du jour at the moment. This heartbreaking video of a sea turtle with a straw stuck up his or her nostril has resulted in multi-national corporations pledging to ban single-use plastic straws.
This is a laudable cause, but on its own, it’s like sticking a band aid over a bullet wound instead of performing surgery to remove the offending object to ensure it does no more damage. Our oceans are, indeed, under threat, but not just from microplastics…Read More
