    • Create a Fish and Plant Production Systems within the City

    • Existing Building Provides Advantages of Lower Capital Costs & Subsidies for Redevelopme

    • Create a System that Produces Fish and Plants at Rates to meet our Market Demand 

    Goals for this Project

    Take Unproductive Urban Structures and Make I Productive Again

    Making Abandoned This

    Into Productive This
