Unlike most home fish tanks, this “refrigerator-aquarium” is designed to produce food that you can eat. Yum. The bottom of the Local River fish tank contains freshwater fish, and the top has pods for growing veggies. The plants help filter the water for the fish, while the fish fertilize the water with their, uh, dookie. It’s a really cool idea, I’m just worried I’d get attached to the little fishies that I’m supposed to somehow catch, kill, fillet, and consume.
The Local River concept is based on the locavore philosophy, which advocates eating locally produced foods… Your living room is about as local as it gets, right? The fish tank will go on display at Artists Space Gallery in New York on April 25th. Two more pics, after the jump.
