Wayne Dorband, Ecological Aquaculture

Wayne Dorband

Small Farm

Did you know that an acre of water can produce 100 times the nutrition than an acre of land? It's true -- practicing ecological aquaculture can turn an underutilized water body into a food-producing machine. There are over a million ponds from ¼-acre to 3 acres in size in the United States that are either almost completely ignored or greatly under managed. If we practiced ecological aquaculture in just 10% of these ponds we could provide enough protein and calories to feed all the hungry people in the country from local sources. Wayne Dorband will describe what ecological aquaculture is, and how you can possibly implement it as a profit center on your land. The speaker has been doing it on his land and for clients for over 40 years. When properly managed it can also enhance what you are doing to holistically manage your land-based ecological agriculture production practices. This presentation will present out-of-the-box thinking that could be a true game-changer for attendees.
