IFLScience: Would You Eat Synthetic Shrimp?

Shove over those lab-grown burgers; we need to make room for the synthetic shrimp on the barbie. Yep, scientists are no longer just working on trading our beloved beef for a greener alternative, but seafood too.

And while the team hopes to eventually create a range of faux seafood, they are focusing on shrimp for now, and for good reason.
