Is Aquaculture Feasible in Space Desserts?[edit source]

There is little hydrogen or water on the moon although some may be available at the never illuminated bases of polar crater walls or mountains or ravine (rilles). It may be a while before water is plentiful in cislunar space from asteroids or hauled up from Earth. It may never be cheap. My question is: Would aquaculture be feasible in zero-g by saturating the humidity of the fish tanks to 100% relative humidity? In other words, are there any edible, palatible fish that would thrive in a zero g high humidity holding tank of misty air? Thanks for any assistance or links to applicable information left here. Opinions or detailed reasoning or theories welcome! Mirwin 03:27, 25 October 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

That is an interesting question... Let's brainstorm how we could impliment such an experiment. It seems that sending up satelites or modules for the ISS would be ways of feasibly testing this hypothesis. Perhaps there is literature of the effects of 0-g environments on fish, amphibians or other animals that could provide us with answers. I came to this talk page to start a discussion... --Remi0o 00:28, 5 February 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Feasible Research[edit source]

What sort of research could be done with Wikiversity concerning aquaculture? We could do literature reviews. We could find a project or research question in which implementing a scientific study would require realistic amounts of capital. What sort of questions should we address and what sort of research would be feasible considering our funding. I suppose grants may be an option. What do you all think? --Remi0o 00:26, 5 February 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Special Committee on Sustainable Aquaculture[edit source]

I don't know whether it would be useful to anyone or not... but I may be able to arrange contact with some members of a current legislative committee here in BC -- The Special Committee on Sustainable Aquaculture

...if anyone has any questions or can see any use to this... that is

Small Scale Aquaculture[edit source]

Is aquaculture feasible on a small scale (personal aquaculture, akin to gardening)? What sorts of aquaculture would work best this way? The Jade Knight (d'viser) 21:25, 2 September 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

In 2011 I visited a restaurant in Costa Rica that had a Tilapia tank from which they took fish for the menu. The tank was about 4m diameter, and had a corrugated metal cover. I do not know the specifics of their operation, but it was a small (one-family) operation.
