Plant-based fish is gaining momentum because of rising gas oil prices
Because of the sharp rise in gas oil prices as a result of the war in Ukraine, profitable fishing is currently no longer possible. Many ships are not setting sail, and the prices of fish are rising rapidly. As a result of these developments, the demand for plant-based alternatives to fish is increasing.
