There’s A Limit To The Fish In The Sea

Ocean fish are wildlife—the last creatures that we hunt on a large scale. And while the sheer size of the oceans is awesome, there are many signs that we have found their limits. Despite our best efforts, the global catch of wild fish leveled off over 20 years ago and 70 percent of the world's fisheries are being harvested at capacity or are in decline. Statistics substantiate the need for our sustainable farm concept which we firmly believe will help save our planet.

  1. National Geographic reports that 75% of the world’s fish are endangered and on a downward spiral to extinction.

  2. Scientists estimate that we have removed as much as 90 percent of the large predatory fish such as shark, swordfish and cod from the world's oceans.

  3. In 2003, the Pew Oceans Commission warned that the world's oceans are in a state of "silent collapse," threatening our food supply, marine economies, recreation and the natural legacy we leave our children.

  4. Today fully half of our seafood comes from other countries’ farms or aquaculture.

  5. 98% of the foods imported in from other countries are never tested by the FDA.

  6. By 2020, 50% of all well water in the world will be run dry and estimates are that even if the population were not to grow, the remaining 50% will be dry by 2100. Nothing can live without fresh water, including our grandchildren.

  7. The biggest food borne illness culprit in the U.S. is not protein but produce: 365 outbreaks a year. One a day.

  8. Aquaponics is the most sustainable farming practice in the world: the cleanest and most efficient environmental farming in the world. Yields are five times higher than conventional soil gardening.

  9. Hydroponic indoor gardens are the current trend, however hydroponic gardens are not the most responsible gardening. They use more water and commercially manufactured nutrients to grow plants then aquaponic gardens do which results in their chemically tainted waste water returning to our water system. An additional downside is the tremendous amount of electrical power used to energize these indoors systems.

  10. There are too many more pros and cons to list here when discussing the environment and the silly antics our society is known to embrace. Future Foods Farms strives to make a huge impact on our community, climate and planet...
