Shia Labeouf wants to swim with his food…and eat well too!
The actor reveals that he and his gal pal, Karolyn Pho, are building a aquaponics farm in Cambria, a city midway between San Fran and El Lay.
Not only does aquaponics combine marine life with horticulture, but it is a new sustainable way to produce food and it's DEFINITELY gaining in popularity.
The actor explains his thinking process:
Aquaculture is the study of fish, and then hydroponics is the study of plants growing without soil. So when you marry those two things you wind up with an ecosystem.
Say you get a big tankful of 12 catfish and on top of it you put a floaty device that has holes in it, and you take a cup and poke a hole in that cup and put a seed in that cup and put it on top of that water.
That will give you fruit forever and fish forever. You never have to change the water.
Fish fillets and applesauce for everyone, everyday!!!!
Then again, we don't think apple trees would work for this idea but we LUHV it nonetheless!
