Promoting Sustainable Aquaculture in Southeast Asia's Largest Lake

Promoting Sustainable Aquaculture in Southeast Asia's Largest Lake | Relevant to my Topics | Scoop.it
Feed your family today or conserve for tomorrow? This question illustrates the struggle faced by the 3 million Cambodians dependent on the Tonle Sap Lake’s fishery for daily sustenance.

Ana C. Day's insight:

Here are just a few of the specific findings:

The most common carnivorous and omnivorous species raised in captivity require up to 10 kilograms of wild fish for every 1 kilogram of fish produced — a staggeringly inefficient use of a finite natural resource.Past studies estimate that nearly 60,000 tons of freshwater trash fish are used annually for inland aquaculture feed. This represents 22 percent of the total inland fish catch.In 2010, the Tonle Sap’s total inland aquaculture production was around 50,000 tons; and by 2019, the government aims to produce 180,000 tons of fish per year through aquaculture — revealing the substantial wild inputs that will be required if there is no intervention.

$50m Funding Opened up for Waste to Energy & High Value Products Project in Hawaii

$50m Funding Opened up for Waste to Energy & High Value Products Project in Hawaii | Relevant to my Topics | Scoop.it
Gainesville, Florida based biotech firm, BioTork could receive special purpose revenue bonds not exceeding $50 million for an agricultural waste to high value products and biofuels facility in Hawaii. The company explained that funding has been made possible thanks to recently passed legislation in the State of Hawaii aimed at assisting a zero-waste project that converts crops, crop residues, dedicated energy crops, and agricultural waste into economically and environmentally sustainable biofuels and value-added co-products. Hawaii’s Department of Budget and Finance has been authorised, with the approval of Governor Neil Abercrombie, to issue special purpose revenue bonds not exceeding $50 million for the purpose of planning, permitting, design, construction, equipping, and operating BioTork Hawaii LLC's commercial facilities. BioTork said that its bioconversion development efforts in Hawaii date back to 2010 when it launched proof of principle research for its technology. Using a proprietary evolutionary optimisation approach, the company said that it enhances the performance of non-GMO microorganisms under real-world industrial conditions in a cost efficient way. The conversion process is said to take a few days to cycle in a heterotrophic environment, meaning no sunlight is needed, to create oil for biofuel and high-protein feed. Basing its efforts on the requirements of the ‘Hawaii Zero Waste Program’, BioTork explained that it entered into collaboration with the Daniel K. Inouye Pacific Basin Agricultural Research Center (DKI-PBARC). Since that time the State of Hawaii, recognising the progress and potential global impact of this project, has committed $4.8 million in research, development and capital improvement funding through a contract with DKI-PBARC to focus on BioTork's evolution technology. Some of these funds have been committed through the state's barrel tax allocations, which target energy and food security initiatives. Other funds have been appropriated through legislative capital improvement program allocations. With the additional support of special purpose revenue bond funding, BioTork Hawaii said that it will be able to fuel the third step of its development program. This would involve scaling up to build and operate commercial facilities that will have the capacity to convert agricultural crops, as well as wastes such as bagasse and glycerol into biofuels and high-protein feed.

Kosher Worms & Insects - Torah Musings | Relevant to my Topics | Scoop.it

Although the Torah clearly prohibits the consumption of worms, or all other insects for that matter, there are, however, some interesting exceptions to the rule. The Torah’s prohibition on consuming insects applies only to those things that “live in the seas and in the streams”, “fly in the air” and “creep on the ground”.[1] So severe is the prohibition on eating any such creepy crawlers that often the consumption of a single insect is a concurrent violation of multiple prohibitions.[2]
