New Global Energy, Inc. (NGEY
) (“NGEY”) (“the Company”), a public company focused on Aqua-Farming, Agriculture, and Health & Wellness, announced today that it has launched the tilapia spawning season at its farm in California’s Coachella Valley with a record number of fish. New financing commitments from outside investors mean the coming year should prove to be record setting in terms of the number of sustainable fish grown and ultimately sold on the company’s farm.
October is a critical month for planning and preparation since fish are seasonal and the new fingerlings will reach sufficient size from October through mid-November before temperature drops and will survive the mildly cold months of December and January. To help insure strong growth and because consumers increasingly demand healthy seafood, New Global feeds its fish a formula that is free of GMOs, antibiotics and chemicals and which includes the perfect blend of the superfood Moringa, nutrient rich algae, and a proprietary blend of other ingredients.
“New Global Energy is at the forefront of developing and implementing the most advanced, sustainable, ecologically sound methods of producing clean, quality seafood. Sustainable features of our farm include the use of solar electricity, nutrient dense fish food, water recirculation through ponds that contain plants that clean the water for re-use, and the nutrient rich fish pond water that is also used to irrigate the Moringa used for the fish feed,” said New Global Energy’s CEO Perry West.
Tilapia is an ideal fish due to its excellent taste yet less than 10 percent of tilapia consumed in the United States is farmed domestically. According to the National Fisheries Institute, tilapia now ranks fourth on its ‘Top Ten’ list of the most consumed fish and seafood in the United States. During 2010, the average consumption of tilapia was nearly 1.5 pounds, up from 1.2 pounds per person the previous year. A recent United Nations study predicts that unless something changes, most commercial fisheries will be producing less than 10% of their one time potential by the middle of this century. The United States imports about 86 percent of its seafood and only half is wild caught. The global demand for farm-raised fish is expected to double by 2030.
