According to an article in Seed Magazine, indoor urban aquaculture in the middle of New York City could be as productive as current fish-farming techniques with better health results for both people and the environment. A test system in Brooklyn is farming thousands of Tilapia succesfully while using a bacteriological system to handle the fishes’ waste. By recirculating water through this system the technique could be used on countless vacant lots and wharehouses in urban areas around the world. It is claimed the system is less stressful on the fish too. So far it isn’t a profitable business, but with pressure on wild fish stocks ever increasing, there’s a chance this entrepreneur is on to something.
