Tasting the future of farmed seafood
London (CNN) -- If you ate fish for dinner last night, there's a 50% chance it was not caught in the wild.

Aquaculture -- the farming of fish and sea creatures under controlled conditions -- is the fastest growing area of animal food production and now accounts for around half the world's consumed seafood.
According to the United Nation's Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), the fish farming industry increased on average at an annual rate of 6.6% between 1970 and 2008.
Dr Matthias Halwart, senior aquatic officer at the FAO, told CNN that globally we're eating more fish than ever before.

Aquaponics USA

If there was ever a time in the modern era to start growing food--it is NOW. The world-wide financial melt-down, complete with a downgrade of our triple AAA rating, is destined to bring with it hyperinflation and food shortages. Aquaponics is our answer. Aquaponics is a hybrid technique combining the best of aqua-culture (growing fish) and hydroponics (growing veggies without soil), and it’s completely organic because the fish waste is your natural fertilizer and that means no pesticides. Aquaponics USA is dedicated to sharing information, developing products and bringing awareness of this life sustaining technology to every American home because it’s time Americans become Food Independent.
Aquaponics USA--Feeding America, One Family At A Time with our Food Forever™ Growing Systems! We have systems that range from 7.5 to 112 square feet of Grow Bed space and Fish Tanks from 100 to 320 gallons.

Tooth Soap Installs Home Aquaponics System
Since 2003 Tooth Soap has been manufacturing natural and organic products to clean your teeth. Now, they’ve added an aquaponics system to their urban farming operation to farm their own fish and vegetables sustainably. They started in February with raising their own chickens and an urban garden, and kicked it up a notch with the new aquaponics system featured in the video.

What is Aquaponics?
Aquaponics is a system used to raise fish and grow vegetables with one symbiotic system. It has been embraced by those who want to be truly sustainable, but don’t have access to a reliable fresh fish supply. If you want to learn how to build your own system, you can start here.

Why are we creating a world that no one wants?-Madam Frances Moore Lappé 為何我們創造一個面目可憎的世界-法蘭西斯路培夫人

Frances Moore Lappé is a "living democracy" advocate and world food expert. She is the author or coauthor of 18 books, including Diet for a Small Planet, which was chosen among "75 Books by Women Whose Words Have Changed the World" by the Women's National Book Association. It also was recently dubbed a "blueprint for eating with a small carbon footprint long before the term was coined," by J.M. Hirsch of the Associated Press.

In 2008, "Gourmet Magazine" selected Frances among 25 people, including Thomas Jefferson and Julia Child, whose work has changed the way America eats, and the James Beard Foundation named her Humanitarian of the year. She is a winner of the Right Livelihood Award, called the Alternative Nobel. She and her daughter Anna Lappé launched the Cambridge-based The Small Planet Institute and the Small Planet Fund in 2001.

Fish Farms, With a Side of Greens 綠色的一角來養魚Jeff Redmon 報導 Sweet Water Organics, a company in Milwaukee, raises perch and grows leafy green vegetables in a former factory. Aquaponics-a combination of aquaculture, or fish cultivation, and hydroponics, or water-based planting -utilizes a symbiotic relationship between fish and plants. Fish waste provides nutrients for the plants, which in turn filter the water in which the fish live. Cuttings from plant are composted to create food for worms, which provide food for the fish, completing the cycle. “Aquaponics is a method of delivering multiple crops with minimum input, through a closed-loop method of farming,” said Charlie Price, founder of Aquaponics UK, the nonprofit organization that runs the farm. A kilogram, or 2.2 pounds, of fish food, produces at least 50 kilograms of vegetables and 0.8 kilogram of fish, he said. “As the ecosystem becomes self-sustainable, the fish food comes from the worms, so the entire cycle is free.” Mr. Pri…

If, in a few years, you are suddenly overcome with a sense that there's something fishy about the lettuce in your salad, you might be on to something. There's a chance it was grown with fish poop.
"There's no fish taste whatsoever," Michael Amadori, a master's student in ecological engineering at the State University of New York's College of Environmental Science and Forestry, assured me Wednesday.

都市農場,養耕共生 International team recognizes Milwaukee's 'high potential' to improve access to healthy food, revitalize neighbor hoods and create jobs.
密爾瓦基國際研發團隊對養耕共生提出有潛力的評價,尤其是在生產健康食品,振興鄰里關係及創造就業機會部份。 Milwaukee could become more economically viable and help the world feed itself through urban agriculture and aquaponics - water-efficient systems that can transform abandoned factories and vacant lots into urban farms that raise fish and vegetables, a report released Monday says. 研究團隊週一的報告指出-都會養耕的農業節水系統可以利用都市中廢棄的工廠空地在有效率的運作下,減緩世界對糧食的需求。 Milwaukee already has the base investment and model to improve access to healthy food while revitalizing neighborhoods and creating jobs, says the report, which lays out a game plan for the city to take urban food production to the next level.

在人口不斷增加,農地面積有限及運輸成本高昂的情況下,鄰近消費市場,用高樓以多層次生產的農業技術:「垂直農業」,成為維護全球經濟發展的重要手段(The Economist Technology Quarterly, 2010) 。這個多層次農業生產的概念應用在水生物的養殖上就叫做「垂直養殖」,在蕭世民博士的實驗室已發展多年並獲得許多專利(請看文獻探討)。本實務專題研究將此「垂直養殖」的發展應用在石斑魚(青斑Epinephelus coioides及龍膽石斑E. lanceolatus)的養殖,設計並組裝出一個有效率的石斑魚垂直養殖設施。
1. 水生動植物的淺水養殖,以方便多層水體上下堆疊,增加養殖場區的空間利用。
2. 在同一水體內構建一到多層的生態結構,形成一到多層有效養殖平面。
以岩礁為棲地或在水底棲息的水生物,包括魚類、蝦類、海葵及珊瑚等為例,在具有特定生態結構的養殖水槽中,可生活在十分淺的水中。現有數據顯示白蝦(Litopenaeus vannamei)、吳郭魚(Oreochromis mossambica)、青斑(Epinephelus coioides)及龍膽(E. lanceolatus)等生物均可生活在水深僅4-15公分的環境,分別成長至每尾25g,600g,1,800g,3,000g或更大。以這個垂直型水產養殖的概念為基礎,本專題研究設計及組裝一個垂直型龍膽石斑養殖設施,並實地試驗其養殖石斑魚的功能。


Aquaponics, A Year in Review
Aquaponics Project by Chef Ricky
September 8, 2011

Almost a year ago I wrote my first blog about Aquaponics here. In the article I cited a link to a video of an art project called “Farm Fountain” that inspired me to start my first experiment in sustainable, organic, indoor gardening using the natural cycles of bacteria (the nitrogen cycle) to grow food. The term for doing this using fish waste as the fertilizer source is called aquaponics, or AP.

Since then, my blog ( the aptly named “Chef Ricky’s FoodStream” ) has developed into exclusively aquaponics updates and news. My work (and disasters) using indoor aquaponics will be in a book this Oct. I am very pleased by the outcome of the initial experiment. Not only have I learned more about the nitrogen cycle than any biology class has EVER taught me, but I have ended this season with an amazing new group of AP enthusiasts, a delicious bounty of crops, and some plans to make AP in Seattle a more recognizab…

Taiwan Lab Creates Fluorescent Angelfish
Glowing examples of innovative biotechnology. Fluorescent angelfish in a Taiwan laboratory. The Jy Lin Company, Taiwan’s largest exporter of ornamental fish, has for the first time, successfully inserted a fluorescent protein gene into the reproductive organs of medium-sized fish, allowing them to produce radiant offspring. Company spokesman Lin Yu-Ho, explains how the process works for this particular fish family. [Lin Yu-Ho, Jy Lin Company]: “With the medium-sized cichlid fish, its biological cycle cannot be controlled by artificial lighting, plus the low number of fertilized eggs makes collection a challenge. It will take a very long time with the micro-injection method. For species like these, we deployed the method of reproductive organ electroporation. We inject fluorescent genes into the reproductive organs and leave the male and female fish to reproduce on their own, and then they can give birth to fluorescent babies…

TOFA Brief Introduction
Taiwan Ornamental Fish Association (TOFA), established in Oct. 2001, is an organization made up of purely field personnel in the aquaculture business. Motivated by the promotion of species renovation, breeding and feeding technology, sales coordination, members participated are distributed all over Taiwan. Surrounded by waters and located on the edge of Asia mainland, the natural geographical location of Taiwan is endowed with the potential of developing ornamental fish breeding. Renowned with the aquaculture breeding technology, breeders nowadays are aggressively breeding over 300 different species of ornamental fish. At the beginning of 21 century, Taiwan ornamental fish industry plays a pivotal role in the world.
