Sustainable, Low-Cost Fish Food Processing System for New Generations Children’s Home

The Broken Arrow Senior High School InvenTeam invented a process to produce low-cost, sustainable fish food utilizing materials indigenous to Mukothima, Kenya. This process consists of growing, harvesting, dehydrating, grinding, and mixing the ingredients to produce fish food pellets. The pellets produced from this process will be fed to tilapia fish, a source of protein for the 40 children who are residents at New Generations Children’s Home in Mukothima. The process’ use of algae, mealworms, banana leaves, and other native ingredients provides a solution 93% less costly than commercial fish food available from China. The locally produced source also reduces overall energy consumption by eliminating the need to transport fish food from China. Watch their 2015 EurekaFest Video
