"Green Aquaculture" Environmentally friendly aquaculture comapines like Snapperfarm in Puerto Rico are filling a void left by declining stocks in the wild. This open-ocean system, with deepwater cages in high current areas that disperse excrement from the fish do not pollute, unlike farms in coastal shallows. Aquaculture companies usually feed carnivorous fish smaller fish of other species, but Snapperfarm raises its cobia on a diet of half grain, half fish meal and hopes to eventually eliminate fish from the feed.
