Ocean Farming in 3-D
Former Newfoundlander Making Eco-Friendly Waves in the U.S.
Bren Smith would love to see his 3-D ocean farm model set up around the coasts of Newfoundland and Labrador.
It would be one piece of the puzzle in solving the province’s current economic problems, he says, and offset the decline in key commercial fishing stocks such as crab and shrimp, and the northern cod moratorium.
In fact, Smith’s vision of the future fisherman is one not chasing fish at all, but farming it.
