    Ocean;
    Buying food for cash: yes. Fishing for cash: yes. I would like to introduce the terms “All Are Above”
    It would mean all possibilities are considered, and the best is chosen and no possibility is ignored.
    Just because an idea is considered, it does not mean that it will be implemented.
    I cannot get a T-bone stake cell culture, but I can get a fishing rod. So I will get a fishing rod, and
    I will contemplate about cell cultures and fish farms and hydroponics, but only until the fish star biting.
    Connecting to Reality is my religion: “As It Is”, and may all being be happy!
    .
    Right now I am a bit sad as the country where I live (USA) eclipses into the incompetence of the
    administration of health care (ebola). Trust God, and keep the gunpowder dry.

    Hi;
    Well, interesting. I do not know how to do cell culture T-bone stake yet. I think, hydroponics is easier,
    or aeroponics. The pictures are pretty.
    .
    Aquaponics with freshwater fish is a possibility too.
    .
    Hydroponic corn in the middle of a cornfield: I get the picture. It may be a bit maverick. If time and
    resources permit, why not?
    .
    I would say: all of above, and bring your own.
    .
    Growing kelp around a seastead could be good too.

    I think, in pharma business the big bucks is not the research. The big bucks is the market.
    There can be all kind of research done, if the drug is not approved for market, there is little
    value. But I do not know about the pharma, even less about the other thing.
    .
    Cooperation with United States Coast Guard is essential. It is a federal entity.
    Well, that is my two cents.

    Casting is OK by me. Welcome.

    The main point here is not global warming, or co2, or fossil fuels, of wind turbines.
    The main point here is fishing for food and cash. And that is yes by me.

    Ellmer; now you are telling me, you should have stated that in your previous post.
    Is there a dialog here, or you are just posting whatever?

    Well, Elmer, about the chicken soup boats.
    Large vessels and structures like that probably request not to be approached by small vessels like that.
    I think the small vessels are part of the large operation. Just tying to keep it true.

    Ellmer;
    You can clutter all you want. Some of the things you wrote are valuable to me.

    Hello;
    I have heard the argument that producing solar panes takes fossil fuel. And the production
    of wind turbines take fossil fuel too. Installing solar panes and transporting them needs fossil fuel.
    Transporting and installing wind turbines take fossil fuel too. And the conclusion from that is:
    solar panes and wind turbines require fossil fuel.
    .
    My response to that is: true. But it is only true in the initial phase. A later phase could bring a situation
    when production, transportation and installation solar panels and wind turbines can be done using energy
    produced by already installed solar panels and wind turbines.
    Not installing renewable energy producing units will not lead to that.
    .
    So is fishing from a seastead. Initially would bring food and cash. Later the established seastead can do
    other things to sustain itself. These things can be done, I would call it: “and/or”.
    Fishing is an industry. And that industry can lead to seasteading also.
    .
    Well, that is my two cents. What I wrote might not worth 2 cents.-)

    Ocean;
    Ellmer an JW just doing their best. This is their best.
    They have not asked for permission to come aboard on any existing structure yet.
    .
    I will see you one of these days.

    I think conventional fishing by a seastead for food and for cash cannot be ruled out.
    Regular fishing has to be a consideration now and in the future.
    .
    I with Ocean about that.

    Hi Ellmer;
    How many dollars/windmill?
    There are lots of them in the Palm Springs area. (Coachella valley)
    I researched some of the data.
    So financially: a 250KW tubine costs about $250K and it
    returns the money in 5 years. So, I calculate $250K/5year = $50K/year/windmill.
    (Now just need to know the maintenance and lifespan of a turbine.)

    By the way, I have pictures, of the backyard.
