This kind of structures for fish farming are around for more than 1000 years mostly in Asia known under the term “KELONG” - some are afloat some based on stilts.
spar structures (made of bambu) spread out nets | the fischer lives in the central hut…
Their economic feasibility is well understood and solidly tested…so the chineese claim of “worlds first” for the above steel structure is a bit overstated…to say the least…
The project fusions “off the shelf oil tech” and “good old Kelong tech” - that is all. Somewhat “overtech” for economic feasible fish farming - less is more… a lot of fast rotting and expensive to maintain marine steel - (type oil rig ) to “guard a couple of fish”… this kind of “cost structure” is feasible for “billion dollar oil bounty tech” - for fish enclosure ? - doubth it.
Typical for a Government-Government project with Chineese state bank - finance
… politics and prestige over economic reason…the planning phase is a mess and structurally rigged to crank out work for the chineese steel and shipyard industry which is dependent of state subvention - what leads inevitably to unreasonable solutions (would not participate again) - been there, done that …
Light cement composite honeycomb and truss shells can stand marine corrosion for decades, are easy repair, economic to build, and can be built weight neutral in sea water. They are shark bite proof. Large amounts of fish in the open sea inevitably call in those fellows who use to bite trough normal netting to get the fish inside. (check on today´s tuna rearing operations ).
So a better enclosure is needed. Steel is ruled out for corrosion. Cement composite structures are ideally suited.
Like always the “next big thing to come” is just a relativly small step from what we see today on the cutting edge of ocean domestication. The business men who have a foothold on this frontier become billionairs…

This is probably a much better base configuration as the vulnerable net is protected by a bow.
To run the whole operation in a underwater configuration like a space station is probably the best choice.
The sea has a way to fatigue and break all things that are installed on the surface - the problem decreases exponentially with depth…

The economic drivers of New Venice will be along the big [5 industry fields](https://discuss.seasteading.org/t/seasteading-invest-the-big-five-of-ocean-colonization-investment-yield-10-oceanic-business-alliance/2013) of ocean colonization.
The big five business fields of ocean colonization: | oceanic transport
| oceanic energy
| oceanic real estate
| deep sea mining
| oceanic aquaculture
The four fundamental quests of ocean colonization : | The quest for interference freedom
| The quest for mobility
| The quest for oceanic resources
| The quest for space on the planet
