Mankind today is expanding exponentially exerting an unprecedented pressure on global resources on food, biomaterials, energy and water, as well on the environment. Regarding bio-sources Terrestrial ecosystems are at a production standstill while Aquatic ecosystems are presently at peril.
In search for new resources and locations the aquatic provides the obvious future solution and great challenge at the same time (before going to space). The first step for domesticating the aquatic is the harness of aquatic photosynthesis i.e. algae.
