    Has anybody thought about growing seaweed? It is nutritional and requires no extra space on the seastead, only a seabed capable of growing large amounts of the stuff. It is no substitute for wheat, or rice, but can take the place of vegetables like lettuce and cabbage, and has the potential to form a large part of the diet, if other foods were sacrificed. It means less imported foods.

    Also, I know people will have discussed fish before, but would it be possible to create large underwater enclosures in which to raise fish, like cattle, and then eat them. I believe this, in a small community such as a seastead, could work as the fish can be caught as needed and wastage would be kept to a minimum. It could even be possible touse it as a form of entertainment; catch your own fish! I admit this last idea would probably get fairly tedious unless some more exciting way to catch them was thought up.

    Large fish pens are already discussed, here, as is seaweed/kelp, oyster farming, IMTA (Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaponics), aquaponics… Kelp and seaweed don’t necessarily need a sea-bed.

    If you can’t swim with the big fish, stick to the reef

    Feed it to the fish, it might cause some sort of super reproduction thing. Then you could really start raking in cash – nutritional fish that are full of weed!

    There are always questions on how and what to do… Don’t get your feelings hurt, just because someone says it’s on here. Most of the sea-farming has been batted around, until a good idea has been thought out. A lot is worth experimenting with, but costs too much to just jump in and see…

    I see you are newer than I am, to the group. Welcome to the aquarium! Swim around and have a good look/see. Plenty of room for past topics to come up and be improved… I can’t think of anyone that thinks their word is the final answer, on here, no matter how well thought out the discussion… Try not to be too sesitive over pet ideas. They’ll get some bashing, but many ideas survive to improved versions.

    Dont worry bout it, I may be new but not naive. I know there are plenty more ideas out there, each as good as the last. I’m just not in a great mood today.
