The flap of a butterfly wing – Brazil, meat, soy…..and shrimp trace-ability.

An interesting view here on the politics of Amazon fires……

…..and Africa has more ongoing fires than the Amazon.

But the lungs of the planet surely are the Oceans…..

Take out for shrimp…

  1. Eat less red meat – try eating more shrimp as better for the planet.
  2. Don’t buy or grow shrimp on unsustainable non-certified soy from Brazil. Check origins.
  3. Buy only non exotic shrimp grown in semi-intensive systems where algae is also grown.

Preferred food for shrimp – bio-film !

Yes as scavengers and omnivores bio-film (floc) is a favourite

Shrimp also very good at helping clean water and love algae!

So bacterial and algal meal it is then……..micro-organisms.

Note – link is more aquarium trade orientated.

This luxury ice cream is made from insects…

Insects are non sentient. Says so on CNN.

Shrimp are the ancestors of insects…shrimp are, effectively, marine insects.

Farming shrimp is good coastal blue carbon capture as well as minimal water usage for protein production.

The aquaculture industry is trying to take fish out of fish food. Are microalgae the solution?

Well written overview.

For those of us in the industry nothing new.

Just re-enforces direction and path we are already on.

How – algal photosynthesis of course…
