morningstar fishermen

you've heard the saying: "give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day, but teach a man to fish and he'll eat for a lifetime." morningstar fishermen are a group specializing in aquaponic research and training that essentially teaches people how to raise their own fish and vegetables in areas suffering from food shortages or unusable or fallow land.

as of now, the group has worked in nicaragua, haiti, and malawi and is wanting to expand their research and training programs. they specialize in sustainable aquaculture and hydroponics (therefore it is called aquaponics) and their primary research and training facility is located in dade city, fl.

this is a very important project in that it encourages not only sustainable living but addresses a prevalent problem in many struggling countries--lack of food and resources to produce that food due to climate change and/or a failing economy. although the aquaponic industry is still young, i feel that this is a promising solution to issues relating to global economies, food supply and climate.
