Salinity research goes underground for better yields and control at sea.
“I was looking for ways to keep our fish and our seafood off the ocean surface. So w강원출장샵 강원안마e’re thinking about how we can reduce the water in seawater and increase productivity of the fish in 영천출장안마the water.”
A new system developed at the University of New Mexico and other U.S. labs can achieve a similar effect by adding bacteria and algae to ocean food chains.

Researchers have long been developing “marine farming” as a way to increase the number of species on Earth and reduce climate change. But to date, the process involves growing a vast network of fish, algae and bacteria in the ocean. This method, for which many scientists agree, is only slightly better at removing carbon pollution than the current food-chain approach.
But to create a sustainable and less-polluting ocean, the technology is needed to manage the abundance of food already on the seafloor.
“Ocean-derived microbes in natural seawater can affect the carbon of seawater in an appropriate way,” said Dr. John B. Pérez, a professor of aquaculture at 호 게임the University of New Mexico’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.
The process used at U.S. Research Sea Lab is a hybrid of microbial science and chemistry, the latter requiring “an intricate mix of enzymes,” Pérez said. The researchers developed a solution for the enzymes that remove CO2 from seawater by breaking it into hydrogen. They’ve also discovered that other strains of bacteria are also effective at degrading CO2.
In addition to the microbes, Pérez and his colleagues developed a microcosm of seawater for testing the system’s effectiveness in removing CO2, an important measure for monitoring and regulating its level.
In addition to producing fish food in the lab, the company’s goal is to turn seawater to a nutrient source for humans.
