    Silkworm larvae, either candied or boiled/steamed, are a delicacy in Korea. I didn’t care for it much. But it IS a dual-use scenario.

    I’m vegetarian and I can’t imagine having to live on spirulina algae for my main source of protein. Have you ever actually tasted that sh1t?

    You may get what you want, but will you want what you get?

    I have no problem with guinea pigs, but any proposal for doing something on a seastead needs to answer the question: why is this better done here than on land?

    For protein sources like “fish” or “algae”, the ocean has obvious benefits. But for land animals? Not so much.

    I think its all about self sufficiency and also many people get weary of eating only sea products, tho when i was in college i had a housemate who was actually eating only such stuff, i remember he was saying something like: I would even eat my father if i catch him in sea (its a poor translation of the original one but there actually is a proverb being used commonly in many fishin towns in eastern mediterrenean and southern blacksea) Those kind of people are minority in the world and since i believe first seasteads will be tourism enterprises’ i think most food will just be imported (since there will be alot of demand to different types of food). But if we are talking about a self sufficient seastead which is permanently anchored somewhere remote for political and security reasons or simply because of technical ease, cultivation of different types of food is a necessity. Assuming we wont have alot of space, this discussion is only natural. Easy method for a solution is to draw citizens from sea cultures like japanese, icelanders, norweigians, island natives n such this way the changes on diet wont be so dramatic when compared to an American. And i do believe that there will be many chinese and southwestern asians,middleeasterners and some africans who would gladly live on seastead colonies as workforce if a certain prosperity degree is guaranteed. Ofcourse its unlikely for this to happen since everyone establishing seastead communities will see real estate as an industry, though some neccesary personnel might be hired that way, since its far cheaper and depending on where he comes; far easier to adapt to sealife or diet. Seeing the project as a real estate industry before it begins is another problem but it doesnt belong to this thread i guess…
