Could those concrete frames double as buoys and ocean fencing?
Surveillance, testing and feeding equipment might have something to hold on to that way reducing either propulsion or lines, or the need of a boat

Permanently operating the above support boat on below´s conditions doesn´t look either profitable or fun

in this context the picture of Ekofisk looks like a giant version of existing aquculture pens.

The bottom could be mostly solid (if trapping sediments, scrap food and waste, is desired) like an artificial seabed where lobster, sea urchin and cucumber might dwell and take shelter,

Closed Containment could also be an option to further alter-control conditions

Indeed it would be helpful to listen to the opinion of someone already doing open ocean aquaculture.

@Matias i think the foto of the tuna rearing cage in “average open ocean conditions” makes the point quite clear…

You definitly do not want to have stuff on the surface where the ocean is most violent …"break fatique etc… decreases EXPONENTIALLY with depth | run it like a space station (Neil Sims Velella) |

another design for an oceanic fish cage…

Surveillance, testing and feeding equipment … need to become part of an “integrated underwater operation” or have the protection of a big ramform that does all the wave breaking and handling…and is at least 3 times wave size to exlude wave action in its lagoon featrue…

If you can not do aquaculture near a port due to the contamination you need to get the port out to the open sea… or make the operation port independent and shelter independent for good.

In a near future all human activity and production needs to be 100% closed cycle based - ocean drift cages are just a intermediate solution that buys a couple of decades and allows to get there…

The big five business fields of ocean colonization: | oceanic transport | oceanic energy | oceanic real estate | deep sea mining | oceanic aquaculture |

The size of those business fields is just outlandish - oceanic aquaculture will have to supply something in the range of 14 billion meals per day (leaving land based agriculture at 7 billion meals per day). That is a market worth to “invest in”.

Oceanic fish pod “run it like a space-station” … (ref 879)

The Housing solution is a submarine…instead a surface boat beaten up by the waves…compared to Ben Franklin a higer degree of mobility (for the oceanic housing solution - not the drift cage) is convenient.

Ben Franklin hosted a crew of 4 for a month in a transatlantic drift dive … the hull we built in Cartagena is twice the size of Ben Franklin…(ref 345)

Offshore Aquaculture investment yield

Base Hypothesis:

• Seasteading is investor driven business development on an evolutionary path
• Seasteading is a “must do” for getting the human project over the next 2 decades (ref.327)
• Investor interest is key - get rid of nonsense talk is good to keep investors interested
• The real important developments are in Atoms not Bytes (Thiel)
• Seasteading is the way of excellence to interference freedom and productivity
• It is important to come to phase 1 investor key conversation (ref 354)

Offshore aquaculture development can be combined with energy and mining development taking advantage of the mid oceanic ridges…this elevates its investment rating.

More commercial spam from Elmo’s Association (Elmo’s Ass.) …

… just another redirect link to phony “investment” crap from Elmo’s Ass.

Time to stop pulling crap out of Elmo’s Ass. and smearing on the TSI comment threads, @Elmo.



There is so much crap from Elmo’s Ass. gets posted in TSI… that it get piled high and deep, and wastes time just reviewing it.


It’s not as if this is a new problem.


It’s an aggravating task to post documented facts, to counter his lies and misrepresentations, too.

Aquapod by Velella Aquaculture Researxh, now InnovaSea ran $140,000 per cage, in 2010

Fishing for a future | A Searsmont entrepreneur’s aquaculture innovation is welcomed in foreign waters while the U.S. plays catch up

Valdez used a Mexican government program to trade in four of his shrimp boats for $100,000 apiece and used the money to buy three AquaPods, which cost approximately $140,000 each. With the AquaPod, Valdez figures he will be able to harvest 30 tons of shrimp per cage per cycle, of which there could be as many as three a year. He says his trawlers never brought in that amount per year. But trading in his traditional boats for new-fangled fish cages was still a gamble. “It was necessary to take the risk because I’m having problems with the fishing. I’m not making business,” Valdez says, sitting on a recent morning in his office inside his company’s seafood packaging plant in the industrial section of Guaymas. “We are lots of boats, so obviously I had to take a decision of what to do. Right now we are in times to initiate something before this collapse and we have more serious problems. So, you got to start generating those options of what to do. So I thought, well, it’s the moment to change.”|-a-searsmont-entrepreneur’s-aquaculture-innovation-is-welcomed-in-foreign-waters-while-the-us-plays-catch-up

Aquaculture cages work best with some level of protection against waves .
Floating real estate development protecting offshore aquaculture assets against oceanic waves.

The cages most sensitive to wave damage are hosted in the protective lagoon - the tougher sphere cages can float out to unprotected waters. | see more

The whole development can grow from an “aquaculture outpost on the open sea” to a full scope oceanic city over time.


Floating breakaway civilizations - beyond fish farming…oceanic business - oceanic future.
