Here is to hope they (the data) will we put to good use!

 Here is the hope that they can make a user friendly tool~Interested to see if some urban myths perpetuated by grain fed Tilapia and tested bad fats in studies to be unhealthy compared to other species grown on a natural diet.Some omnivores(vegetarian small insects) like Silver /Jade Perch have the worlds highest Omega3 healthy oil.Because of the ease of growing a rubbish fish that survives in crowded poor quality water conditions some Aquaponics growers persist in ignoring/ questioning the" Study" denial of inconvenient facts.They would sell it as "healthy fish" even if it were grown in a sewage drain as some Chinese product might as well be, it is fed faeces(shit) from farm animals.A Southeast Asian practice not to blame just China ,polyculture poultry pens above ponds pigs etc is wide spread as are health problems.The race to the bottom is not the way...Value for money IS  quality assured. A fresh clean green product involves rethinking the best produce you can grow, like heritage tomatoes that taste nice.Excess can be dried stored in olive oil or air tight containers.
