sustainable biotechnology to feed the planet




KIDEMIS mycelium protein reduces the pressure on wild fish/shrimp stocks, which are a vital source of protein for humans. This help to ensure that fish/shrimp are available for future generations and that the aquaculture industry can contribute to food security.

Good health
and well-being


KIDEMIS ingredients for aquafeed are highly nutritious, and they help to improve the nutritional quality of fish/shrimp products. This is important for ensuring that people have access to healthy and affordable food.

and Production


KIDEMIS products are made from sustainable upcycled sidestreams, which helps to reduce the environmental impact of aquaculture. This includes reducing the use of land, water, and energy, as well as reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Our products also help to eliminate greenwashing practicers in aquaculture.



KIDEMIS products are made from sustainable upcycled ingredients, and they help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This is important for mitigating climate change and protecting the environment.

Life below


KIDEMIS products help to sustain ocean biodiversity by making aquaculture more effective, scalable and affordable also reducing the the output of fishing industry (which is one of the biggest ocean polluters - plastic from fishing nets, ocean depletion, CO2, etc).

on Land


KIDEMIS's products are made from agricultural sidestreams, which helps to reduce the pressure on agricultural land. This help to protect forests and other natural habitats.

01 The 1st problem

How to feed the world in a sustainable manner?

Image Decor

The global protein deficit is a serious
problem, with an estimated 1 billion
people not getting enough protein in
their diet.

Only a marginal part of the global population will convert to a plant-based diet, but what is more likely is that meat will be replaced with seafood. This means that seafood will become the most demanded source of protein in the future.

The global seafood market size was valued at USD 338.47 billion in 2022 and is poised to grow to USD 730.28 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 8.92% in the forecast period (2023-2030).

The increasing demand for seafood is putting a strain on wild fish stocks. It is important to find sustainable ways to produce seafood to meet the growing demand.

02 The 2nd problem

What to do with all the sidestreams?

Image Decor

Globally, it is estimated that over 700
million tones of agricultural sidestreams
are produced annually, including crop
residuals and food processing waste.

Most agricultural sidestreams are currently managed through incineration (40%) or landfilling (30%).

The environmental impact of agricultural sidestreams is a growing concern. The incineration and landfilling of these sidestreams can release harmful pollutants into the air and water, and they can also contribute to climate change.

03 The 3d problem

Aquafarming is under pressure

Image Decor

Fishmeal and fish oil are the most common ingredients in aquafeed. These ingredients are made from wild-caught fish, which puts a strain on global fish stocks.

In addition, the production of fishmeal and fish oil can be harmful to the environment and people whose livelihood comes from small scale fishing. In addition, the production of fishmeal can lead to the destruction of mangrove forests.

Soybean meal is another common ingredient in aquafeed. Soybean meal is a good source of protein, but it is also a major driver of deforestation. In order to produce soybean meal, large areas of forests are cleared, which releases greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and destroys habitat for wildlife.

The kidemis solution mycelium protein Decor

KIDEMIS's solution is to use mycoprotein as a partial or complete replacement for fishmeal in aquafeed.

This will reduce the environmental impact of aquaculture. Mycoprotein is a sustainable
alternative to fishmeal and fish oil because it is
produced from renewable resources.

The fungi that are used to produce mycoprotein can be grown on a variety of substrates, including agricultural sidestreams. This means that mycoprotein will be produced without putting a strain on global fish stocks or the environment.

In addition thanks to mycelium immuno-stimulating properties we could decrease the usage of antibiotics.

KIDEMIS strategic focus sustainable aquafeed Image

We aim to replace 1 million tons of fish and soy based aquafeed with sustainable mycoprotein ingredients.

This will have huge impact on ocean biodiversity, climate and deforestation.

KIDEMIS's mycoprotein aquafeed is a sustainable, high-quality, cost-effective, and scalable alternative to fishmeal and fish oil.

It has the potential to revolutionize the aquaculture industry and help to ensure a sustainable future for food production.

Sustainable: mycoprotein is produced from renewable resources, making it a sustainable alternative to existing aquaffed.

High-quality: mycoprotein is a high-quality protein with a lot of productivity and health benefits.

Cost-effective: The cost of KIDEMIS aquafeed is disrupting the industry and making seafood more affordable to final consumers.

Scalable: KIDEMIS's mycoprotein production process is scalable, which means we can produce large quantities of mycoprotein as demand increases.
