Veta La Palma is a fish farm located in Spain and is, in my opinion, the best example of fish farming and perhaps sustainable food production in the world. Its been described as a farm that doesnt feed its animals, measures its success by the health of its predators and is literally a water purification plant also. The brilliance behind this revolutionary farm comes from the idea that people need to work WITH nature and not against it (seems pretty obvious right?). I truly believe that this is how we will make the future better for every organism on the planet, by taking a wholistic approach, and realizing that everything in this world is connected to everything else and has to stay that way to work. check out the links below to find out more and to be inspired!
