Many lakes have an issue with over fertilization due to human activity in nearby citys. This leads to massive algea blooms and the overpopulation of certain types of fish, leading to an imbalance in the ecosystem. To secure the flora and fauna of the lake massive loads of fish are being taken out every year. The FISKGULD project makes use of that resource. By getting socially responsible corporations involved, creating jobs at the same time as making use of the fish, the project turns something considered as waste in to something valuable. We made suggestions for packaging for a fishsoup and frozen fish fillet. Some types of these fish are not considered very tasty for cooking and so we also developed two different types of fertilizers that can be made using the fish.
This project was made in collaboration with Sarah Salter and Elisabeth Aery.
