Yale Environment 360: In Booming Aquaculture Industry, A Move to Plant-Based Food for Fish

By John H. Tibbetts | September 3, 2015 Aquaculture production has more than doubled since 2000, putting pressure on the stocks of small fish used to feed farmed salmon and other species. But researchers are now developing plant-based feeds that could put the industry on a more sustainable path. In a quiet valley just outside Bozeman, Montana, a trout stream by the name of Bridger Creek flows past a circle of low-rise buildings, including a structure that holds about 250 tanks of rainbow trout …

Teeth found near Tel Aviv point to a new prehistoric human species – Israel Culture, Ynetnews

… until now no one knew existed. Science has until now held that humans originated in Africa (Homo Sapiens who developed there about 200,000 years ago.)

Vegetarian diet promotes growth and activity of “friendly” bacteria – Mizo News

… different species of bacteria have been identified living in a single person. Within the colon their concentration reaches a trillion per millilitre of faeces.

Thinking outside the box: farmers could make more money switching from cattle to carbon

Changing cattle fields to forests is a cheap way of tackling climate change and saving species threatened with extinction, a new study has found. Researchers from leading universities, including the University of Sheffield, carried out a survey of carbon stocks, biodiversity and economic values from one of the world’s most threatened ecosystems, the western Andes of Colombia.
