People Places Planet Podcast Presents “Environmental Disruptors: Fly Grub, the Future of Animal Feed?”

February 2019

Washington, DC: An estimated 25 million tons of fish is used in animal feed per year. Is there an alternative to feeding livestock from a dwindling marine resource? In the next episode of the Environmental Law Institute’s People Places Planet Podcast, Kasantha Moodley, ELI’s Manager of Innovation and Governance, interviews the co-founders of Grubbly Farms, Patrick Pittaluga and Sean Warner. They discuss the beginnings of Grubby Farms, a fly farming operation, an idea that if scaled, could avoid depleting global fish stocks, to feed livestock.
