A Massachusetts-based aquaculture company, Australis Aquaculture, is setting out to reduce methane emissions from cow burps and farts. Yes, this is a serious environmental business endeavor. Researchers at the University of California at Davis say that the methane from cows’ burps makes up 25 percent of methane emissions in the U.S.
SO what is the plan to reduce the farts and burps?
Australis Aquaculture is trialing SEAWEED as the new livestock feed in Portugal and Vietnam. Hopefully through the next few years of trials, “Greener Grazing” will take hold and become the international-norm.
Australis Aquaculture, LLC is a leading producer of sustainable seafood, specializing in barramundi, marketed under The Better Fish® brand.
