Seedstock: ' the greatest, most valuable web site' with startup profile of Bell Aquaculture from 2011
"Seedstock is also a steady source of inspiring tales of smart aquaculture — they’ve profiled VCs focused on fostering enviro-friendly aquaculture, and fish farmers experimenting with ways of lowering feed conversion ratio, companies focused on improving quality and traceability for consumers.
Here are two examples — two great profiles of US-based farmers using recirculating aquaculture systems — one looks at SweetSpring Salmon, a producer of coho salmon, and the other focuses on Norman McCowan, a fish farmer who raises 2 million perch a year in the middle of the Indiana cornfields. (McCowan’s Bell Aquaculture, North America’s leading producer of yellow perch, reuses 99.8 percent of its water and converts leftover fish waste into a saleable product, organic liquid plant fertilizer.)
Check out Seedstock if you’re interested in becoming involved in sustainable food production. Their resource page includes a bunch of helpful links — aimed at entrepreneurs, students, job-seekers interested in aspects of sustainable agriculture. In brief, Seedstock bills itself as the resource on sustainable ag, we agree."
