Could the best place to raise seafood be on land? Marine scientist David Guggenheim proposes a new form of aquaculture that is executed not in pens in open water but in pools that could reside in large warehouses. What are the benefits of this unorthodox idea versus the commercial aquaculture systems already in place?

Urban Aquaculture: Fish Farming in the City

Urban Aquaculture: Fish Farming in the City

Aquaculture (i.e. aquatic plants and animals) is North America’s third largest import, only following automobiles and fuel. However, we have managed to overfish our environment beyond repair. Overfishing poses an enormous threat to our oceanic ecosystems. Enter urban aquaculture, or more simply put: fish farming in the city.

Because urban aquaculture raises their fish rather than collecting them in mass quantities from their natural habitat, it provides an opportunity for fish levels and ecosystems to return to a healthier state.

Professor Martin Schreibman, distinguished Professor Emeritus of Biology at Brooklyn College, has developed a state-of-the-art, sustainable urban aquaculture facility. His aquaculture utilizes a water re-use system. Fish waste is filtered out and is used as a plant fertilizer, so ultimately, he is self-sustainably harvesting 2 types of crop — fish and plants.

Beginning Gardening Series #1: Best Location for a Vegetable Garden

Beginning Gardening Series #1: Best Location for a Vegetable Garden

In the first video of my series for beginning gardeners, I talk about the best location for a vegetable garden.

If you shop on Amazon, you can support OYR simply by clicking this link (bookmark it too) before shopping: http://www.amazon.com/?tag=oneya-20

These are the factors to consider when choosing a location for a vegetable garden:
1) Look for a location that gets 6 to 8 hours of direct sun.
2) Avoid locations where soil is likely contaminated, especially if growing in native soil. If in doubt, have the soil tested for contaminants. It’s also a good idea to test the soil fro nutrients, organic matter, and pH. This can save a lot of time, money, and guesswork in the future.
3) Locate the garden close to the house and a water source.
4) A south facing slope is advantageous in cooler climates with a short growing season.
5) Look for a location that is protected from extreme winds and pests by fences, trees, or buildings.
6) Make sure you are aware of any limitations on vegetable gardens imposed by your municipality or homeowner association.
