In fact, thinking further...i proposed some years ago, that interconnected and massive barges (think multi-story tanker sized ships) anchored out to
sea, could one day be the perfect fix for all or at least, most of our farming issues.
Hydroponics, powered by on board solar and wind turbines, possibly undersea generators using tidal energy, and that of rising and plummeting type
generators, could make use of desalinated sea water, use the filtered minerals left over as ferts, and free up valuable land in the process.
It's a win win really. Just needs the initial investments and a trial version could be up and running in as little as a year.
If it worked out favourably, most of the worlds farming could be transplanted to ocean based, multi-story barges to make use of the essentially free
resources of water, minerals, space...as another boon...the high Ozone present at sea, would also act as a natural fugus and bactiera inhibitor,
cutting down on crop losses due to infections and so on.
