BP Turning Natural Gas Into Fish Food

BP said it's investing in a Silicon Valley startup that aims to help feed the world by turning natural gas into food for fish farms and livestock.

The British oil and gas major is putting $30 million into Calysta, which aims to meet the growing demand for feed in the aquaculture and agriculture markets - such as farmed fish, crustaceans and livestock - in more environmentally sustainable ways.

According to BP this partnership offers the opportunity to improve food security and sustainability for the world's growing population.

Great information! I knew that natural gas was used for many plastics, fertilizer, etc. but actual protein from bacteria no. This could lead to a whole new sector of animal feed supplements. It might be a strong competitor or reduce the price of protein left over after corn ethanol is produced.
