First underground fish farm to open in CG

US - The first underground fish farm is about to open in Casa Grande, Arizona. Four school teachers have gotten together and have patent pending on raising Tilapia underground in huge tubes.

Each tube will harvest about 10 tons of fish every four months. The test tubes have been running for several months.

It has a unique feeding system, and cleaning systems that allows a grow out per tube. These fish will be hormone free.

The team of four are Larry Dawson (Math), Neal Parsons (History), Lou Raj (History), and Steve Wooten (Science). The teachers have pulled together their skills to develop a unique system that take advantage of the Tilapia s natural strengths and nocturnal nature. The recirculating system insulates the Tilapia from the rigors of Arizona's weather and predation while minimizing the amount of water necessary for the grow out process.
