We shifted from merely studying to doing in 1999 when with a consortia of Canadian energy majors we modeled photosynthetic methods to mitigate their burgeoning carbon footprint.
Is it possible to repurpose CO2 into living plants?
We learned that Ocean Pastures are in a terrible state of decline almost everywhere.
At least 40% of ocean plant life has disappeared due to our neglect in the past few decades.
Just like pastures on land where there is little grass few livestock can survive, within ocean pastures where there is little plankton few fish can survive.
We're not alone in this work, decades of academic research with a quarter of a billion dollars in public funds has shown that replenishing and restoring those ocean pastures is possible.
The world has a growing need for food and fish.
In 2002 we undertook our first open ocean research which made the Journal Nature in 2003.
It's now a dozen years later and what we have completed the largest sustainable ecosystem replenishment and restoration project in history.
The work on the data continues and will for a long time to come.
We've proven it is possible to be caring stewards of the vital ocean pastures and in doing so to bring back the fish to historic abundance.
Someone has to be the pioneer and lead the way.
That someone is us!
IT JUST WORKS!
Plankton blooming in ocean pastures provides the food for all of ocean life.
THE FISH ARE BACK
Historic runs of salmon of all species are being recorded and seen up and down the west coast of North America.
Nothing can explain the miracle save the restoration of a critical ocean salmon pasture, our pasture, in the summer of 2012.
You can read on these pages about how we intend to bring the fish back around the world.
Our intention and rapidly attainable goal is to bring an extra billion fish into the nets and onto the plates of people needing and wanting healthy, nutritious, and affordable fish.
Think our dream isn't possible?
The US Government has just purchased (spring 2014) 60 million servings of the healthy pasture fed salmon we sent home to Alaska last fall.
Those 60 million servings of fish are right now being provided to American children enrolled in USDA food aid programs!
The world my not be our oyster, but it will surely eat our fish.
