Upward Farms: Striped Bass

Aquaponic vertical farming company Upward Farms just launched its first fish product — hybrid striped bass, harvested at a “plate-size” of about 1.5 to 2 lbs. 

The fish have a light, flaky, and buttery flavor and are rich in minerals like zinc and magnesium. Upward Farms raises them sustainably at its Brooklyn farm without using hormones, antibiotics, or mercury. And, as part of the aquaponic ecosystem, the fish provide the fertilizer for the company’s microgreens.

The bass are now available to restaurants and consumers via Greenpoint Fish and Lobster in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. In 2022, Upward Farms plans to reach more consumers on the east coast with both its fish and microgreens products.
