“An Aquacultural Revolution in China”

Watch our latest short film we produced on sustainable aquaculture and a new revolutionary technology being used in China – “Intensive Pond Aquaculture.”

From USSEC: “See how U.S. soybean farmers are helping Chinese fish farmers to revolutionize aquaculture in China, the world’s largest fish farming country.  The U.S. soybean industry funded research to develop the Integrated Pond Aquaculture (IPA) system, which has been provided to China in a technology transfer. The IPA system has been proven to triple the yield of farmed fish in existing Chinese ponds while greatly reducing the environmental impact. Limited water resources can be conserved and recycled, with waste removed for use as biofuel and fertilizer. This system can grow healthy, high quality fish with increased food safety to meet the needs of a growing population.”

Photographing a Hawaii Fish Farm for the State of Hawaii

Fish farming started countless years ago here locally with the ancient Hawaiians and their fish ponds (http://www.hawaiihistory.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=ig.page&PageID=514).  Modern fish farming has also been occurring in Hawaii for quite some time on a couple of the Islands.  Bryce recently went out and shot some images for the State of Hawaii for a new campaign they are working on.  Standby for more on this topic.
