Our concept develops and encourages a change in the current fishing strategies. As a team we aim to diversify today's methods, from hunting fish to farming fish by using a open sea system. We see our concept as particularly advantageous to reducing the sheer number of fish wasted from over fishing. Therefore we feel our concept could contribute towards improving the efficiency of fishing of today in an ever growing populated world.
Our team Oystem stands for open sea system of tuna fish farming. Our principal goal is to achieve sustainable fish farming practices to reduce the current global issue of overfishing. Our idea is to establish an efficient farming system to harvest and control breedings of tuna whilst promoting sustainability via reducing waste.
As a group we are quite diverse, with different interests and knowledge to collaborate towards our mission including engineering, economics and sustainabilty. However we all share the same interest of contributing to tackle the current global issue of world hunger. Which is the reason why the TFF Challenge was an ideal opportunity to allign our ideas to work towards our project Oystem.
