The When Blue is Green project goal is to increase local and regional production of sea food. Why is this important? Every year 90% of the seafood consumed in the US is imported from abroad. This volume of importation is costing 17 billion dollars in US trade deficit. By increasing our local production, we can also increase the diversity of our blue foods. Increasing our food diversity can positively impact our dietary patterns. During this project, we will be researching and developing an environmentally sustainable and economically viable food production system with aquaponics. We will also be assessing the economic and environmental performance of the system, engaging with stakeholders, and creating educational material. Follow along to learn more!
