Organic Chicken Has 10x More Omega 3

Watch this great clip showing supermarket bought chickens being tested in a tab for fat and omega 3 contents. It basically shows that an Organic free range chickens have 10x more omega 3 and is a less fatty product than the rest.

Animals themselves can’t create their own essentially fatty acids (omega 3) they have to get that from plants/grass, along with exercise and a long (slowly grown) life. Free range is the way forward and organically fed makes a lot of sense.

Urban Fish Farming

This is an “Urban Aquaculture” system or at least what he’s calling it, at first glace it looks like what most are now calling Aquaponics. Just found it an interesting little bit of information for those unfamiliar with the concept or processes involved. Bit of animation may help explain it a bit better to some too.

I do wish to say though that when they are using indoor lights for the plants I question if that energy could be gotten from solar panels or better yet have the plants under glass instead.

Professor Martin Schreibman says our oceans have been overfished beyond repair. If we’re going to keep eating fish and chips, tuna tartare, and all those omega-3 fatty acids, we may have to rely on aquaculture. Schreibman is working to bring those fish farms into the city.

I like the idea of fish being produced locally in our cities but this is also a system that could truly be setup in countries that are impoverished and help feed starving people around the world too.
