Description

Using an environmentally extended Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), we’re able to evaluate the production and farming of freshwater fish on energy requirements, greenhouse gas emissions, and other environmental indicators. We will compare these results to analysis of the farming and production of chicken to see if our system represents an improvement. We are examining the 14th UN goal, which is to reduce marine pollution and unregulated fishing and to conserve coastal and marine areas.
