  • This salmon filet didn't come from the sea.

  • It was grown in a lab to look just like the real thing wild.

  • I've got the cells from coho and chinook salmon.

  • The cells go into a steel tank, like the kind you'd see in a brewery with nutrients like sugars and amino acids.

  • The tanks have the right temperature, ph and oxygen level for the cells to grow and replicate the same way they would inside a fish.

  • But what comes afterward still looks nothing like a piece of salmon.

  • That's where something they call scaffolds come in.

  • So if the product is going to be a block of salmon will create scaffolds that are those same dimensions and then the cells will grow into those dimensions.
