Aqua: Protein of the Future

Have you opened your eyes to the aquaculture revolution? Today, farmed fish outsells beef, pound for pound, and generally fish can be produced more efficiently than any other animal. Moreover, the Norwegian experiment in fish farming is projected to generate more revenue than the fish oil industry by the year 2050, and the Financial Times is calling a substitute for fish oil the “Holy Grail” of the industry.

Salmon: Norway’s New Oil.  Norway is a land of oil, or is it a land of fish and salmon?  It is a land where, with the right REBELation, salmon exports and fish exports will exceed oil exports.  Why not have this in other countries such as Ireland, Scotland, and even the Midwest of America?
