Primary Address State: NY
Long Organization Description:

My name is Jonathan Kadish and my goal is to advance the field of Aquaponics to part of the solution to the world's food shortages and also have a positive impact our energy problems. Humanity is on an unsustainable path of global destruction and depletion. Aquaponics can supply humanity with protein from fish and nutrition from plants. Nearly half of the petroleum used currently is used in the growing, transporting, storing and serving food. Aquaponics eliminates much of the need for energy intensive farming and inefficient transport. For every 1 calorie of food American's eat 10 calories of energy is expended to produce it and deliver it - an extremely inefficient ratio. A small Aquaponics operation can produce thousands of pounds of organic fish and vegetables with just a few inexpensive of solar panels and batteries. With energy efficient greenhouses, fish and produce can be supplied year round even in northern climates.
