Overview

According to the Government of Canada, the blue economy is driven by sustainable ocean resources and accounts for approximately C$30 billion per year. A significant factor in the blue economy is the preservation of aquatic life –– specifically, seafood. As a result, seafood alternatives are projected to reach a market size of US$1.6 billion in the next decade at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 28 percent. With this in mind, companies with models that support blue economies, and offer seafood protein alternatives, will likely be of significant interest to investors seeking upside potential.
