Brody Bros. Aquaculture

(from Langalibalele

 Sikosana)

Impact:

Our solution contributes to limiting the effects of Climate Change in the following ways 1. Fish Farming produces on average far less Greenhouse Gas Emissions than other forms of Animal Agriculture 2. We aim to farm only natively occurring species of fish, endemic to the area such as Tilapia. This will minimize the effect on the ecosystem and allow nature to maintain its balance 3. Efficiency: Protein conversion rates (that is the amount of feed you need to produce protein) for Fish Farming is 1:1. This is far more efficient than other forms of Animal farming which can be as high as 2:10 4. Lessening the Burden on Sea Fishing: The majority fish consumed in Gauteng and Mpumalanga is fished from the Sea. By introducing a new type of fish into the market we lessen the burden on Species coming from the Sea, thereby allowing them to recover their populations.

Motivation:

We are applying for this program primarily to make an impact in our community. We come from a township with an extremely high unemployment and poverty rate. We believe that if we help our people put bread on the table in an environmentally sustainable manner, we can show that you can work with Nature to earn instead of taking from it. That is why we have included an educational element in our program. We expect to gain knowledge and resources on how we bring our ambitious program to life

Great idea geniuses. This would really create job opportunities. And help increase fish production considering depletion of fish stocks.

Our ocean fish are being depleted at a horrendous rate and this will help a lot and hopefully lead to a cheaper price for fish
