What if the way to save the ocean is to live on it?
Up until now, human civilization has had a largely negative impact on the health of the oceans. Waters have become more acidic, coral levels have decreased, and water toxicity has killed dolphins, sea turtles, and other sea life.
With seasteads, we can reverse much of this damage. Seasteads are much more than sustainable.
Seasteads are environmentally restorative in much the same way decommissioned oil rigs are.
Environmental scientist Steve Kolian, founder of the nonprofit Eco-Rigs, wrote:
“When rigs are left standing the fish biomass is ten times greater, per unit area, than the fish biomass at the Flower Gardens Fish Sanctuary.”“The Benefits of Leaving Oil and Gas Rigs Intact to Serve as Artificial Reefs” by Steve Kolian
A German aerospace engineer at Ocean Builders is developing a system for coral ecosystems, so that seasteaders can look out their aquarium windows at a floating garden of life.
Investors have already expressed interest in their plans for a floating underwater restaurant, and have even proposed a SeaBnB to get customers used to the idea.
Every seastead you build increases life on the ocean. Fish WANT to live and breed on a solid foundation. Seaweed and algae crops WANT to absorb carbonic acid from the ocean. Mussels, scallops, clams, and oysters WANT to absorb waste and turn it into protein.
You can create your own circular food chain on your own seastead. No pesticides, no soil depletion, no factory farms. Just ocean, nutrients, and sunlight.
