Interesting work on offshore artificial kelp forests. Apparently will use depth cycling setups where the kelp is brought shallow during the daytime then sunk at night.

'Perfect' food for 'perfect' prawns
So new shrimp feed based on terrestrially grown plankton as a protein source, rather than ground up fish meal?

New shrimp technology could speed up race to feed the world
Interesting, but this is largely shifting energy inputs for perceived production gains. This makes it look like a compact indoor shrimp production facility, with only electricity and fishmeal inputs, produces more. But where does the fishmeal come from, how was it made? Doing true cost analysis compared to traditional inland open pond shrimp farming using pond based algae as food for the shrimp, I wonder if it really is coming out ahead, and is not simply a tradeoff of greater energy expenditure to achieve greater density of end product production.

University of Rhode Island Make Transgenic Trout that are Myostatin Unhibited So They Have 20% More Meat for Better Aquaculture
I can understand the desire for a higher protein yield in commercial land based aquaculture, but seriously. These fish look like muscle bound gym freaks. People are definitely not going to be buying these fish whole at the supermarket. A secondary issue is that the increased muscle fiber count without a corresponding increase in muscle fats will make the meat lean (which may be a good or a bad thing, depending on the way you prepare fish for consumption). And lord have mercy is these GM trout ever get loose.
