    The Algae Production System Design and landscape competition

    I have an Idea that someone might consider using . I thought of using
    old tankers as algae and fish farm production vessels. These converted ships can go to tropical zones where growing conditions are best
    for spirulina production by putting growing systems on deck underneath
    the ship you could put a net which would keep fish in and preditors out
    for farm raising ocean fish you can also use seawater for growing the algae and use the algae to feed the fish. these vessels could feed
    whole populations taking the strain off land based agricutual systems
