Seedlings, their roots bathed in this funky nourishing brew, grow big and strong. The system leverages the fishermen’s know-how and yields more numerous, healthier crops with less land and water than traditional methods. So far Veggi has sold 10,000 pounds of produce, and the harvest usually heads to high-end eateries like Emeril Lagasse’s flagship, Emeril’s. It’s hyperlocal, hyperefficient, and hyperhelpful.

Growing trays are positioned directly above the tanks. And while they share the water supply, adult fish are kept separate so they don’t snack on developing roots.
