For additional information on the environmental impact of WFI please read article written by WFI’s CEO for Aquaculture magazine. "Grass Fed Fish”. This describes a pretty dramatic crisis we are facing in food production, not just globally but also in the US. In particular it goes over the impact of using Grass Based Feeds.
This diet can be fed to any animals to replace conventional grains and compound feeds, but are most effective when fed to fish. It explains the crisis that Waterfield Farms is designed to be a solution for. It is a pretty massive problem, but also an equally large opportunity.

A follow up article that has not been published yet shows the impact grass-based diets can have not just on food sustainability and soil restoration, but also carbon sequestration.
Grass Based Feeds have the unique ability, if adopted widely, to sequester enough carbon to return global atmospheric CO2 levels to pre-industrial levels of 280 PPM in about fifty years, and rebuild depleted topsoil to sustainable levels. A key tenet of WFI is that its solutions are market based, and presents how most environmental solutions need to work this way to be successful.
There are no other solutions that can, not just stop carbon emissions, but actually rewind or sequester already emitted CO2.
Solar, wind and all other renewable energy platforms stop new emissions of new CO2 but none remove the already very damaging existing levels of CO2. Without reducing atmospheric CO2 concentrations, not just stopping new emissions we all face a very challenging future. Waterfield Farms can be a key catalyst to generate the initial market for theses feeds.
