Deep Sea Fish Farming in Geodesic Domes: Upgrade
In this episode of Upgrade, Motherboard goes to Baja California, Mexico to get a firsthand look at these free floating pods, and to get an understanding for why we need better ways to cultivate our future food sources. Whether it’s found on a plate of sushi, grilled in our backyard, or thrown on pasta, seafood is a staple for many diets around the world, and demand is growing. And as the commercial seafood industry booms, fish stocks worldwide face perilous declines. We’ve surpassed our capacity to sustainably fish wild caught fish, shrimp, and mollusks from the ocean, and so we’ve turned to aquaculture, or fish farming, as a strategy to meet demand for our growing appetites for water-borne critters. The aquaculture industry is growing fast. According to the FAO, per capita production of seafood from aquaculture has increased 6.9 percent annually since 1970. Unfortunately for us and for our Earth, current methods of fish farming often involve crowded, tethered pens, which can have poor water circulation and contribute to the spread of disease, and put large amounts of environmental stress on the surrounding waterways. This is where Steve Page of Ocean Farm Technologies comes in. Taking inspiration from naturally-occurring schools of fish and Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic domes, Page co-designed the Aquapod, a free floating, untethered deep ocean fish habitat which reduces overcrowding, and creates less stress on surrounding environments due to its unique ability to change location with the ocean's current.

This Farm of the Future Uses No Soil and 95% Less Water
Watch the next episode about San Francisco becoming a zero waste city: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cg3OA1s8-SI&list=UUJsSEDFFnMFvW9JWU6XUn0Q As urban populations continue to rise, innovators are looking beyond traditional farming as a way to feed everyone while having less impact on our land and water resources. Vertical farming is one solution that's been implemented around the world. Vertical farms produce crops in stacked layers, often in controlled environments such as those built by AeroFarms in Newark, New Jersey. AeroFarms grows a variety of leafy salad greens using a process called "aeroponics," which relies on air and mist. AeroFarms' crops are grown entirely indoors using a reusable cloth medium made from recycled plastics. In the absence of sun exposure, the company uses LED lights that expose plants to only certain types of spectrum. AeroFarms claims it uses 95% less water than a traditional farm thanks to its specially designed root misting system. And it is now building out a new 70,000 square foot facility in a former steel mill. Once completed, it's expected to grow 2 million pounds of greens per year, making it the largest indoor vertical farm in the world.

Sustainable Delta game
The game, Sustainable Delta, helps participants to learn about preparing for an uncertain future. Participants have the assignment to develop a sustainable water management plan for a river delta. In an interactive setting they implement strategies. Once the future unfolds, the participants experience what happens in the delta and its environment. They can implement additional actions, if necessary. After the simulation of 100 years, the participants and facilitators reflect on the developed storyline and adaptation pathway, and discuss what triggered this pathway, how it can be improved, and how exploring adaptation pathways can help to develop a sustainable water management plan . The game is developed within the project Perspectives in Integrated Water Resources Management by a team of employees from Deltares, University Utrecht, University Maastricht-ICIS, Carthago Consultancy, Pantopicon, KNMI, and University Twente. In cooperation with Tygron a 3D version is developed. Animatie: Asteroids. Soundtrack: FoundSound

How to research a body of water before a bass fishing tournament!
How to research a body of water before a bass fishing tournament! In this video I show you how I would prepare for an upcoming tournament. In this situation I am actually preparing for an upcoming FLW BFL on the Chesapeake Bay this weekend. I will have 2 days of practice and start out by doing some research online and some mapping. I am familiar with the Chesapeake Bay so I don't need to do too much in depth study but I show you how I would approach a new body of water for a tournament. I spend a lot of time online looking up fishing articles on that body of water, Social Media and other resources online. I want to get a feel for the type of weight that is going to be needed to do well. Of course looking at the weather and how that might effect the bite is something that you must pay attention to. In this case the spawn is in full swing and with a full moon this week the majority of the fish should be spawning or are done. This rainy cold week is going to make for a tough tournament. These fish are not going to be predictable and who ever can adjust to the current conditions the best is going to be fair ahead of those who are hoping for a bite from past History this week. It is going to be interesting. The FLW BFL usually draws a lot of boats and so there will be a lot of fishing pressure leading up to the event. I am going to be putting in two days of practice and hope that I can figure out a pattern that will work. I plan on fishing for post spawn fish for the most part and realize that the forecast of 100% change of rain is going to make it cold and miserable but one has to stay focused in order to do well! I plan on videoing my practice and hopefully the tournament weather permitting! I will be uploading after each day of practice for the BFL so enjoy!

Travis Manson was born and raised where the giant Smallmouth Bass of the north live...WISCONSIN. He started fishing from the bank as at a young age and spent most of his childhood with a rod in his hand. Travis is primarily a self-taught angler that is always learning and experiencing this amazing sport of fishing. He started out fishing for walleyes and fishing in local walleye tournaments, but then in his mid 20's, he caught the BASS BUG and has been hooked every since. He competed at the highest level in bass fishing on the Bassmaster Elite series for a number of years, until he ran out of $$ money $$. This led to a move across the country to the Northeast where he got things right again and is back on track, but now on his own terms. Perhaps he will make another run at the Elite Series if the opportunity allows. In the meantime, he is a fishing guide offering trips on the Chesapeake Bay for largemouth bass(year round), guided trips for smallmouth back in Wisconsin (during select times) and trophy smallmouth bass guided trips in Upstate New York (May-November) His Youtube Channel is named after his passion for the smallmouth bass and will be used as a platform for "how-to" videos, on the water instruction, crazy on and off the water topics and vlogs on the day in the life of a fishing addict! Hope you enjoy!

POND EQUIPMENT: http://amzn.to/2qPFpjZ SHOVELS: https://amzn.to/2JeVpFY TOOL SETS: https://amzn.to/2ImycAz PATIO, LAWN & GARDEN STUFF: https://amzn.to/2GMUluL In this video i show you how i turned a water pit into an all natural pond without pond liner. This pond requires very low maintenance but some local conditions have to be met for it to function. Thank you for watching, feel free to subscribe or comment if you have questions. hi there, I'm Carl the landscape guy and today I want to show you how I converted this back yard water pit into a 3000 square foot all natural pond. Now in a pond you want to try to keep the water level as constant as possible. The water level in this pit was fluctuating by about 2 to 3 feet depending on the weather. Rainwater would fill it up, especially during the winter months and during a hot summer there wasn't much water left in there. This situation was really unsightly especially since the main line of sight in this back yard is right on the water pit. In order to minimize the water level fluctuation, I started by connecting the pit to the closest rain water ditch. For that i used about 250 feet of pvc drainage piping, 6 inches in diameter. The pipes were installed on a slope that way the water from the ditch would flow into the pit. I chose only a small slope for the piping so that if the pond is filled up, water can flow backwards into the ditch not overflowing the pond. In addition to that, I connected the rain gutters of the house to the pipe to use existing water as efficient as possible. After these preliminary works I started cutting off all the grass, bushes and little trees about 15 feet around the edges of the pit. Now I could start re-modeling the new pond edges. Since no pond liner is used and all water in the pond will be rain or ground water there will still be small water level fluctuations. That's why I took away the sloping terrain and created a steeper edge. With this relatively steep edge even if the water level fluctuates the water surface will stay about the same. With this 2 ton excavator it took me one day to finish the pond edges. The pond has a depth of about 6 feet. An all natural non liner pond only works on sites with fine soil like clay or loam which has a low co-efficiency of permeability or it also works if you have a high ground water level. Natural wells or brooks around a backyard make a perfect supply for natural ponds. Now it's time to flatten the soil around the pond and plant the first water plants. If you don't want to spend money on water plants you can go to local lakes or rivers to get regional plants you like. If you do so don't destroy natural wildlife habitat. Take only small plant offshoots, they will spread in their new habitat. If you want to put fish in your natural pond that's ok but wait until plants have grown and don't put too many fish in. Since it's a natural pond I didn't add any pumps and filters and I put in about 10 fish. If you feed the fish keep in mind that all nutrients put into the water will have to be clarified by the pond itself. If you add too many nutrients, algae will grow and the fish might suffer. I decided to add a few Stones and one bigger tree stump from the woods with moss on it. This use of regional materials helps to create an all natural character of the pond and improves its appearance. It helps to add only one or two eye catchers, otherwise your eye doesn't know where to look and it doesn't have the effect of creating a harmonic atmosphere . With this pond we look at a low maintenance level. Each fall I cut the grass and plants around the edges and that's about it. I hope this video was informative and helpful for you. If so I would appreciate a "thumbs up". Feel free to subscribe for more videos on ponds, brooks, waterfalls and other garden stuff.

Carp Madness - Commercial Fishing Tournament
Asian Carp, brought over from the far east to aid in cleaning commercial fish ponds in Arkansas. It seemed like a good idea at the time; however, it all went bad when the Mississippi River flooded in the 1970's and they escaped into the wild. Now they are taking over rivers and lakes along the Mississippi, Ohio and connected waters. The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources is addressing this problem and one possible solution to that problem in this edition of Kentucky Afield TV. ***UPDATE**** Two Rivers Fisheries in Wickliffe, KY is taking a run at the Asian Carp market. With an abundance of Bighead and Silver carp in nearby waterways, the fish market is set to process and sell these fish for consumption. Commercial fishermen have often said if you pay us for the invasive carp we will catch them and that is exactly what is happening in Western Kentucky.

Aboriginal water values and management in northern Australia
As part of the Tropical Rivers and Coastal Knowledge (TRaCK) research program, we documented and quantified Aboriginal social and economic values of aquatic resources and identified their flow links in the first study of its kind in Australia. The research was conducted over three years (2008-2010) in two tropical river catchments—the Daly River in the Northern Territory and the Fitzroy River in Western Australia—where water planners needed information on Aboriginal people's water requirements. Narrated by traditional owner, Patricia Marrfurra McTaggart, this video focuses on the research conducted in the Daly River catchment.

When The Storm Comes It's To Late to Prepare
Why do people hate to plan in advance when their lives and the lives of their families depend on it. It does not make any sense. They know it's coming and still no plans. They have been through it before, and still no plan. What's wrong with people. Don't they love their families enough to at lease talk to them about plans of escape in times of trouble, and put it on paper. They have been given ample time to prepare, time after time and still have no plans. The scriptures state that people perish for a lack of knowledge and are warned not to be slothful in preparing in advance for things to come. And they will come. So why not at lease jot down a plan and share it with family members if you haven't already.

Prepare for the journey of your life and experience one of the world’s most mysterious regions! The Bermuda Triangle is notorious for the vanishing of countless ships and airplanes. Will you survive long enough to reveal its secret? Open World Bermuda – Lost Survival plays in an open world sea scenario containing sectors with different reefs and individual resources. Since a sector never contains all resources, you must plan strategic outposts and optimize your crafting chains and travel routes. Dynamic Ecosystem Each reef in the game has an individual ecosystem that is affected by your actions. Observe the wildlife’s reaction and keep the natural balance as your life depends on the reefs natural supplies! Progressive Gameplay As you progress further, the game focus will shift: Crafting and building plays a very important role in the beginning. Your next step will be to explore deeper waters and find out about Bermuda’s myth. But your activities in the depths will not stay unnoticed! Exploration Upgrade your equipment and prepare for the depths! Visit impressive wrecks and ancient structures. Search them for unique artifacts and hints that might lead you to the myth of the Bermuda Triangle. Combat After drawing too much attention, a hostile faction guarding Bermuda’s secret will find you. Take action and fight for your survival! Day 7 I survived, alone, nothing but water and horizon around me. Day 13 The harsh weather conditions and cold nights get debilitating. Supplies are running low. Day 15 I crafted some basic tools and hunted for fish. Let’s hope I didn’t attract any predators. Fresh water is still a problem. Day 17 I found a huge reef. It’s full of life and old wrecks. I salvaged a lot of useful materials from the depths and might be able to build a platform, like an ark or something. Day 29 Welcome to my new home! It’s not beautiful, but a suitable shelter. I also found a way to distill water, so I should be safe for the moment. Day 30 I’m trying to refine my crafted equipment for further exploration. Day 34 Another reef, but something is different. The water seems darker here. I found an artifact near a strange stone formation. It looked like a sunken pyramid or temple. I spotted some sharks, so I marked the position for later. Day 41 I was right about the stone formation, it’s an ancient building. There is a small entrance but I only found empty chambers inside. I need more oxygen and a light source to dive deeper into this labyrinth. Day 44 Strange things are happening! Something awoke! I saw lights moving in the depths...

Region to fight illegal fish trade
Formal fish exports from Uganda remain under $150M dollars despite the capacity of the country’s vast fresh water resource to increase on production for both domestic and external markets. Continued capture of immature fish, as well as outright smuggling across the common borders is barely helping in alleviating this constraint which is now enlisting combined effort from authorities from across the EAC member economies to curb the vice.

Infrastructure Plan Halved by Legislators
It''s the last day of the Legislative Yuan''s first extraordinary session, and the special provisions for the government''s massive infrastructure program have finally been passed. DPP and KMT legislators reached a consensus to halve the proposed timetable and budget to NT$420 billion in 4 years. The Cabinet''s original plan only consisted of five items, including railways and water management. Now, the issues of sub-replacement fertility, food safety, and human resource development have been added. Next, Premier Lin Chuan will present a breakdown of the plan''s budget at the Legislative Yuan''s second extraordinary session, in the hope that it will be passed by the third session.

The leaders of the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and the Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment introduced the Water Resources Reform and Development Act of 2013 (WRRDA) during a Wednesday press conference in the U.S. Capitol. Through this type of water resources legislation, Congress authorizes the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to carry out its missions to develop, maintain, and support our Nation's vital port and waterways infrastructure needs, and support effective and targeted flood protection and environmental restoration needs. Historically, Congress has passed such legislation every two years to provide clear direction to the Administration and the Corps, but no bill has been signed into law since 2007. The Water Resources Reform and Development Act will be one of the most policy and reform focused measures of its kind in the last two decades.

Digitalization in water management - IFAT 2016
Digitalization and data processing - the environmental technology sector presents the latest developments at IFAT 2016. The networking of work processes has found its way into waste and water management. EU Commissioner Günther Oettinger especiallyvisited the trade fairto spotlight the benefits, such as energy efficiency through "Water 4.0". The goal: Conserve resources and save costs at the same time. The company Echologics, for example, has developed a sensor to examine water pipes. If there’s a leak in the pipe, the so-called 'ePulse"triggers an acoustic signal based on the modified flow speed and sends this information out: Stefan Verschure, Field Specialist Echologics: “This is a very simple measurement of the state of the pipe. Water utilities can use this for network planning and deciding what pipes need to be replaced.” A smart system monitors the water at different depths in wastewater treatment plants and should thus assist specificallyin environmental protection: Andreas Ziegler, CEO FlowChief GmbH: “We monitor and document water supplies in sewage treatment and biogas plants, photovoltaic and wind power plants, to allow these plant operators to drive their facilities energy-efficiently and to manage the water and media intelligently.” Generate energy and conserve resources - IFAT shows the possibilities!

Detroit Lake low water level management meeting
Wednesday July 20, 2016 a public meeting was held at the Gates Fire District community center regarding the dropping Detroit Lake level. Over 200 people attended this meeting that was hosted by Marion County commissioners Sam Brentano, Kevin Cameron, Oregon congressman Kurt Schrader, Army Corps of engineers, and other interested state and federal agencies. The question was, what is the economic impact of another year of low lake levels and what can we do about it. Because there are many state and federal agencies involved in the management of the water for a long list of resources besides recreation, not much, if anything can be done about it. Several of the 200 people asked if there was financial assistance to the businesses that depend on a full Detroit Lake to help offset their losses. Commissioner Cameron indicated that there were some grants available through the county and perhaps the state for economic help. There was a lot of frustration from business owners, property owners and fishing interests that this is the second year in a row of low water in the lake and a short recreation summer. There were questions about how the level was managed and questions were raised about looking at changing some of the flow options for earlier filling and later releases. The Army Corps of Engineers said that because there are so many agencies involved that the fill and release plan that has been in place for over 50 years, is and has been working. They are sorry that it is having the impact on recreation, but their mandate is to protect downstream fishing migrations and water supplies to the many communities that rely on the North Santiam for water supplies.

Water Resources Explorer - How to use Ecology's Statewide Water Rights Web map
As part of the Washington State Department of Ecology's ongoing efforts to improve the efficiency of its water management services, the Water Resources Program has posted a new water right map on its Web site providing convenient access to water right information throughout Washington State. Now anyone with a personal computer can locate and research water rights on land parcels anywhere in the state. The Webmap provides direct public access through a geographical interface to Ecology's voluminous records of water rights and claims. The Statewide Water Resources Webmap provides information on 230,000 active water right and claim records in the Water Resources Program database, many that have been in existence since the late 1800s For more information, see http://www.ecy.wa.gov/programs/wr/info/webmap.html

Consumnes River Preserve
With most of the trail being flooded I wasn't able to get much footage. Filmed 2/26/2017 The Preserve The Cosumnes River Preserve consists of over 50,000 acres of wildlife habitat and agricultural lands owned by seven land-owning Partners. The Partners include The Nature Conservancy, Bureau of Land Management, California Department of Fish & Wildlife, Sacramento County Regional Parks, Department of Water Resources, Ducks Unlimited, and the California State Lands Commission. The Preserve is centered along the Cosumnes River, its floodplains and riparian habitat. This habitat is buffered by a variety of agricultural operations. The Preserve provides numerous social, economic, and recreational benefits to local communities and to people residing in the larger Sacramento and San Joaquin areas. The habitat supports wildlife, including birds that migrate throughout the Pacific Flyway. Vision Statement The Cosumnes River Preserve Partners envision the permanent protection of a continuous riparian corridor extending from the Cosumnes headwaters to the Delta, including adjacent floodplain and wetland habitats and a vast vernal pool grassland complex supporting endangered species. The Partners will utilize stewardship and compatible ranching and farming activities as methods to sustain native plant and wildlife communities and the processes that perpetuate a dynamic mosaic of habitats. We will provide opportunities for people of all ages to appreciate the flora and fauna of the Cosumnes River Preserve and to experience being part of a natural landscape. Mission The Central Valley once contained one of the largest expanses of streamside forest and wetland habitat in North America. Along with cottonwoods, willows, ash, and other flood-resistant trees, great forests of valley oaks studded its fertile floodplains. But the rich riverbottom soil that nourished the oaks was also coveted by private farmers who cleared most of the land. Today, only tiny remnants of these magnificent oak groves are to be found in the Central Valley. Along the lower Cosumnes, small but significant stands of valley oaks have survived. These groves cover some 1,500 acres, and along with the remaining riverside forests and wetlands, they provide habitat for the wildlife that still flourishes here. The Cosumnes River Preserve is a project aiming to preserve 46,000 acres of this historic land in its natural state. We seek to protect and enhance the habitat within the Cosumnes River Preserve project area, including riparian forest, wetland, vernal pool grassland, oak woodland, riverine, marsh, and farm habitat, in order to preserve biodiversity and benefit declining, threatened, and endangered species of wildlife and plants. We attempt to accomplish this using a cooperative management approach by developing both short- and long-term integrated conservation and management projects, as well as supporting policies compatible with our goals. We believe that effective conservation integrates the preservation of natural lands as well as agricultural lands and practices. History The Nature Conservancy, an international non-profit conservation organization dedicated to the preservation of biodiversity since 1951, first became active in south Sacramento County in 1984. The organization purchased a conservation easement on 85 acres of valley oak riparian forest. In 1987, with the acquisition of more than 1,400 additional acres, the Conservancy officially established the Cosumnes River Preserve. Since then, the Preserve has grown with the aid of our many supporters. Ducks Unlimited, the leading non-profit wetlands conservation organization in the U.S., joined as a partner in 1988, along with the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. The California Department of Fish & Game, working with the Wildlife Conservation Board, joined as partners in 1990 by purchasing 840 acres of valley oak woodland and seasonal sloughs, followed shortly by the Sacramento County Department of Regional Parks in 1993. The California Department of Water Resources officially became a partner in 1996, with the purchase of agricultural land. For more information about the Preserve, check out the overall parcel map and CRP’s management plan.

Water safety Message from Boyd Duckett

How Do Saint Lawrence River Levels Affect Wildlife?
Michael Twiss, a biology professor at Clarkson University, has been working to find out exactly how rising and falling water levels in the St. Lawrence River will affect not only the shorelines but also the wildlife this major river sustains. Twiss says that since the time the Moses-Saunders Power Dam was built, the water level has been constant on the Saint Lawrence River and that has led to a build of sediment and plants in wetland areas along the border of the United States and Canada. Within this sediment harmful mercury and other chemicals have been building. A plan to return the river to a more normal state of rise and fall could possibly release those chemicals into parts of the river at a concentrated level doing more harm than good to the wildlife and possibly to humans that use the river for sport fishing. Michael Twiss is on the river to find out. The research is being funded by the New York State Water Resources Institute and New York Sea Grant.
