Fish - The World`s Future Food
The bad news, that not many people are aware of, is that Our Food is running out
The global population rate of growth exceeds that of meat and poultry production rates. The shortage not only of meat but of the raw materials for feeding both humans and animals is rapidly growing!
Meat – natural pasture areas aren't increasing in size.
Poultry – production rates are still on the rise but will stop soon due to shortages in raw materials.
Natural grown fish in seas, lakes and rivers – the quantities are dwindling due to over- fishing. Fish Farming does not cover the gap caused by the over-fishing of natural grown fish.
The Production of raw materials (such as wheat, soy and sorghum) is in decline.
Shortages in raw materials will limit the growing of cattle and poultry in the near future!
Global Fish Harvest - Inland vs. Marine
Conclusions from Global Harvests - (natural and Aquaculture): Harvests from the sea are 3 times the amount from those inland!! Aquaculture harvests (both marine and inland) are on the rise. The amounts of captured naturally grown fish are in decline.
There are less fish to feed more and more people.
The captured marine shows significant decline the captured inland naturally grown fish - is stable.
USDA – United States Department of Agriculture data for Annual Nutritional Raw Materials Harvests/Year - Wheat, Sorghum, Soy, Corn, Dried [Powdered] Fish
Conclusions from the Raw Materials: When examining the numbers for the main nutritional raw materials (not including soy) we find a rise that ends in 2004, after which we see a slight decline.
From the global fish harvests, inland and marine (capture and aquaculture):
1- Harvests from the sea are 3 times the amount from those inland!!!
2- Aquaculture harvests (both marine and inland) are on the rise.
3 - The amounts of captured naturally grown fish are in decline.
4 -Human population numbers are on the rise and there are less fish to feed people, both in relative and absolute.
From the Nutritional Raw Materials Harvests :
When examining the numbers for the main nutritional raw materials (not including soy) we find a rise that ends in 2014, after which we see a slight decline.
Making use of the existing natural water bodies: seas, lakes and rivers (which amount to an area much larger than the land masses) is possible with relatively little investment, relying on natural existing infrastructures.
We are, in this way, committed to keeping the natural existing biosphere of water reservoirs!
One of the our Solutions:
Populating the large water reservoirs with low-density quantities of fish, relying on the fish to feed naturally without additional feed!!
The key to the Solution:
Our present know-how for the production of different species of fish "artificially"
Adapting the present know-how for the production of different species of fish "artificially" in different parts of the world will provide us with the ability to "produce" millions of additional tons to feed a growing world population!
This solution involves:
1 - Making use of natural water bodies,
2 - Growing a variety of species adapted to different parts of the world,
3 - Protecting species from extinction, and feeding people with healthier food.
4-This solution also enables us to protect the water bodies' natural -Biospheres.
The Solution: Comparing costs between two methods (Production of 2000 ton)
Subject Artificial ponds Natural water bodies
Infrastructural 1500000$. 350000$
Breading - 1500000$. 350000$
Total - 3000000$ 700000$
Feed- 4000 ton 200 ton
This comparative table demonstrates the distinct differences when producing 2000 ton of fish through these two methods, and the large amount of additional feed – 3800 ton – that is Saved, and the large amount of investment- 2300000$ that is Saved.
Production - Hectar
It is possible to produce between 30-200 kilos of fish annually in every hectare of natural water bodies, this according to the water temperatures and the species of fish.
The Solution – Stages and Methods
Locating natural water reservoirs as potential projects Adapting the species of fish to the various projects, according to geographical location, the local market needs and weather conditions.
1. Spawning of a number of fish species
3. Populating the water reservoir
5. Processing, packaging and marketing
The Solution We Offer
Populating large natural water bodies with low densities of fish, relying on the fish to feed naturally, preserving existing biosphere and without the need for additional feed.
