In the race for alternative proteins, lab-grown seafood could be next on the dinner table.

One of the world’s biggest makers of canned tuna, Thai Union Group Pcl, has set up an innovation center with more than 100 scientists and engineers working to develop various forms of faux meat and seafood. It is also partnering with several companies through a venture fund, which could lead to the production of lab-grown seafood.
