Using Fish to Harvest Algae for Oil and Protein
LiveFuels, based in California, is using their 10 million dollar in funding to try things differently in growing and harvesting algae. It feeds the algae to the fish and lets the fish work on harvesting it. After the fish fatten up, they are caught in nets and processed for oil and protein used in animal feed. LiveFuels is testing different breeds of fish and researching when would be the optimum time to harvest the fish.
