French scientists have proposed a plan to build fish farms on the moon
According to the magazine Hakai, a group of French scientists involved in the preparation of the first manned lunar missions proposed to replenish the diet of astronauts with live fish, which will be removed from fertilized eggs delivered from Earth. This idea came about after researchers discovered that fish embryos could probably transfer a flight to our nearest space satellite.
To be convinced of this, the scientists placed specially selected eggs of sea bass and silver croaker on a shaker in order to create the conditions that arise at the start of the Russian Soyuz.
Surprisingly, from the overwhelming majority of the eggs participating in the experiment – 76% of the perch and 95% of the silver croaker – fry appeared, which is commensurate with the survival rates of the eggs that did not participate in the experiments.
According to the researchers, in addition to dietary benefits, the lunar fish farm will bring a pleasant “earthly” variety to the life of the conquerors of the moon, recalling a distant home.
