The post-coronavirus financial climate will support upcoming land-based aquaculture projects, in part because shortened supply chains and sustainability claims will hold greater appeal among investors, aquaculture-focused investment bank Lighthouse Finance CEO Roy Hoias told IntraFish.

Aquaculture ticks all the boxes as consumers become more aware of food security, quality, sustainability and high-value proteins, Hoias said, with land-based farming being particularly positive in terms of quality and security.
