    What are they using to feed the fish.
    Feeding PHarmed Fish remains the biggest obstacle.
    Are they being fed antibiotics, growth hormones, hydrolyzed poultry feathers and such?

    This system is ideal for sustainable development and of course, the fish does not have mercury like the fish from the oceans. At the same time there is no need for transportation. Very god guys keep on telling people how to do it in underdeveloped countries.

    Let's hear it for mercury free fish. What a wonderful idea. I hope that this catches on around the US.

    These, instead of IMF and Wall St, are reasons we go to school. IMF and Wall St are one big scam and brain washing magazine we must eliminate with modern communication. We don't need them to trade our resources and our valuable efforts.
