A story of a fish and extensive agriculture!

Chef Dan Barber giving a talk at the TED conference in February, about his search for a sustainable fish to put on his menu.

His comparison of two fish farms and their incredible differences brings up a lot of topics that would be interesting to debate, from wanting food that actually tastes good, wanting to be environmentally responsible, feeding the world, the agribusiness paradigm, elitism and many more.

“Want to feed the world, lets start by asking how are we going to feed ourselves, or better, how can we create conditions that will enable every community to feed itself.”

Barber asks questions that dig to the core of our agricultural ideas and systems, and he’s a chef. We need to be finding answers and we need to be looking at our own system and related industries to put ourselves into perspective.
