Feeding Vegetarian Fish - The Spruce
In response to the problem, a new generation of environmentally aware consumers, farmers and entrepreneurs are trying unique solutions for producing more and better food with less impact on the environment.

Fish meal feeds now cost more than many vegetarian based feeds.
