After adding French insect meal startup NextProtein to its portfolio, venture capital firm Blue Oceans Partners has its sights set on innovations to bolster sustainable aquaculture and end overfishing.

"One of our key verticals is solutions to overfishing, and sustainable aquaculture is a key component of that vertical," Managing Partner Christian Lim told IntraFish.

Blue Oceans Partners recently helped NextProtein raise €10.2 million ($11.3 million) in a Series A funding to boost expansion plans.
