Hi Bill,

Tetsuzan's Group and Ikayzo launched last year.  I just added a discussion about an ahi farm in Japan.  And I got a question.

I wonder for your Ahi farm project, how much you estimate the cost for feeding Ahi per year.

The Japanese farm mentioned in the article says a few million yen (A million yen= $10K)/Ahi/year.

Aha, I thought your name sounded familiar. I recall doing some of the early work on MedSurf/RLFP over a decade ago.

Hi - sorry for the late reply. I don't have the resources to develop iphone applications at this time. It would be nice to be able to do that one day. Thanks!

We have decided to change the name of our fish farming system to Oceansphere. We like it better.

Hi Bill,

I'm new to Techhui. Nice pics. I remember when Pat Takahashi was an evangelist on the approach you seem to be taking. I'd like to talk with you sometime. My interest lies in the lower end of the trophic web. I believe that open ocean ranching and farming will eventually produce the feed inputs for the commercial (your ahi) crops, although phyto-photo-krill-small fish production may be the finished product stream for some future operations.

A hui hou,

Dave Takaki

I keep getting questions from people along the lines of "What are those fantastic buckyball fish farms on TechHui's front page?"

GB did a great job with these renderings. I can't wait to see the real thing!

Here are some more frame grabs from our Aquasphere video. GB Hajim did the CG work. He and his team did a great job, on time and on budget!

Hi Bill. Any thoughts on John's Making it Easier to Cash Out of Startups post? I'm curious what a pro thinks about how an idea like this would affect Hawaii.
