One of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals pledges to “end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture”. As the world population continues to climb, food production at sea is likely to become an increasingly important resource. Here we present two interesting research initiatives.
The Floating Food Farm of Floating Future
Growing crops on water
Each year MARIN offers a number of basin slots to innovative SMEs free of charge. One of the selected projects was the Floating Food Farm of Floating Future, which is a concept for carrying out food production on a flexible floating structure. Innovative, highly relevant and hydrodynamically very interesting! No wonder this pioneering concept was selected.
