70% of our planet is covered by the oceans, with abundance biodiversity: over 80% of all life on earth. Billions of people rely on fish for protein, and fishing is the principal livelihood for 500 millions of people globally. More than 3 billion people get at least 20% of their protein from fish. 

Millions of people in developing countries may no longer be able to afford fish by 2050 due to 50 yrs of overfishing which is unsustainable, depleting many fish stocks and already destabilize a part of the sea ecosystems.

Today commercial fish aquaculture farming practices of using antibiotic chemicals lead to pollution which affected and changes the fish supply substantially.

What if we can regenerate the fish/seafood value chain system to provide us abundance again to pre-1960's with fewer Carbon Footprints of Land-Water-GHG?

Explain your idea

Our Value Proposition OPTIMISES 5% of the 300Millon KM2 UnderUTILIZED Open Sea ABOVE & BELOW Sea Level We can engineer floating platform ( eg Kelong -Malay word describing a form of offshore platform built predominantly with wood/bamboo, ) for Healthier "Organic" SeaBased Food-Feed that are Chemical & AntiBiotics FREE, with Control Harvesting of sizable Fishes. NOT FRYs Provides a consistent supply of Sea Products, Fresh Vegetables & Fruits from calm sea water for the 500 million fisherman communities along the coastline globally Any plant-seafood waste are 3R+Upcycling into insects proteins are use to re-GENERATE the sea livestock for sustainability harvesting. Feed to Fish conversion rate is 1:1. ZERO Waste

Who Benefits?

500 Million Fisherman Communities 10 Billion People with Cheap Proteins-Omega 3 etc 500 Billion Livestock Feeds+Omega3 Enhancement 30-70% Methane Reduction Feed Formulation with SeaWeeds+Proteins

How is your idea unique?

We have proven with a prototype floating Kelong in South Chian Sea off Malaysia ( Ulu Tiram), 30 mins by Boat from Singapore 300 days ago, there are just fingerlings around the abandoned Kelong, 200 meters off shore. Today we catch up to 15kg fishes We have got the license to harness 1000KM2 of the area for our project
