March 16, 2020—The F3 – Future of Fish Feed – invites feed companies interested in participating in its third contest, the F3 Challenge — Carnivore Edition, to join one of two upcoming webinars to learn more about the contest, including contest rules, timeline, benefits of joining and how to register. The F3 Team, including the challenge judges, will answer questions from current or prospective participants during the one-hour webinars.

The F3 Challenge – Carnivore Edition is open to companies that produce and sell “fish-free” feed for farm-raised carnivorous species. A prize will be awarded in each of three categories—Salmonid, Shrimp, and Other Carnivorous Species—to the contestant that sells the most feed made without using wild-caught fish or any marine-animal ingredients. The prize is currently at $35,000 USD per category, with a crowdfunding effort underway.  Contest registration is open until April 30, 2020.
