Eating Green August 3rd, 2017CEEC
Last year the United States of America consumed 4.8 billion pounds of seafood, 50% of which is supported by fish farms. A method of fishing consisting of isolating a ‘pen’ of water to securely harvest fish from. What’s the problem with this? In addition to the societal overconsumption of fish, fish farms are stationary. This means that the pens are trapped within the produced waste of millions of fish. This often leads to disease, and the complete desertification and destruction of nearby ecosystems from increased toxicity.
Cue an innovative solution: InnovaSea is attempting to create free-floating domes which will seemingly solve the problem. What’s more? Not only will these pods ensure that the produced waste is distributed across the ocean safely and effectively, but these pods will actually utilize ocean currents to DELIVER matured fish to shipping ports across the world.
To see the effects of a collaboration between innovation, business and nature the following video goes into amazing details about the Aquapod A3600. And as always, feel free to read more at this link.
Happy Earth Day everyone! People are always cautious about how the food they eat will affect their body, but have you ever wondered how the food you eat affects the planet? Check out this article from NPR which touches on similar themes that CEEC 2017 speaker, Kip Anderson, spoke of to our incredible delegates. It just goes to show how incredibly connected everything, and the importance of being sustainable in every aspect of our lives!
