above:  UVI area in red calculated on 500 m2 (too low – 535 minimum. 775 actual )  == White w/ red area calculated on their 214 m2 assertion

“3 to 7 MT/yr” = average 5,000 kg   =

  • 23.4 kg/m2 @ 214 m2 claimed,  [white bar above]
    • 50% basil + 50% okra claims = 17.6 kg/m2/yr @ 214 m2 claim
  • 9.3 kg/m2 @ 535 m2 minimum area (w/ frames and aisles),  [10 kg shown above]
  •  6.5 kg/m2 @ 775 m2 actual area  (at least)

above UVI area in green w/ white calculated on 850 m2 (too low – actual was 1200+).  White w/ green area calculated on 500 m2 (‘worse’ as 535 minimum)

APS, UVI, NCSU, USDA yields graph

UVI numbers above/below are WRONG (its worse)  Fish = 40 kg/m3/yr, plant

BTW, came across Saint Jim’s advertisement for his final course (2011)  which began in 1998 according to page

In it he claims 5 MT tilapia and 3 to 7 MT vegetables /yr on 0.05 ha (500 m2)  = or 10 kg/m2/yr each

  • However, that 500 m2 area is JUST the actual tanks & raft areas (no borders, aisles, or misc. areas)
  • Does not include the full fish house (240+ m2), the sludge lagoon (100+ m2)
  • nor any aisles between and surrounding the raft tanks (at least 650 m2)  –
  • IF ‘allowing’ only for a 1 meter raft perimeter and between raft tanks (vs 2 to 3+ m).
    • the raft tank area alone is 500m2 (minimum – including if in a GH).
  • Plus Fish house and lagoon = 840 m2 minimum

5000 kg tilapia @ $3.3 + 5000 kg veg. @ $6.6 = $99/m2  @ the 500 m2 claim

  • However minimum (applied) is 840 m2 ( $58.8 m2/yr)
  •  Actual area was over 1200 m2 ($41.7 m2/yr)
