Can DIYbio Save Canada's Salmon?

Just like 3D printing, what at first seemed like a novelty is quickly transforming into a set of practical tools and techniques communities can use to enhance their understanding and control over their lives and their living surroundings. A 2013 documentary titled Salmon Confidential followed biologist Alexandra Morton as she sought the cause of massive die-offs of British Columbia's wild salmon. Suspecting salmon farms located along the migratory routes of wild salmon may be spreading contagions among wild populations, she and an army of volunteer DIY-biologists examined fish, collected samples, and sent them off to labs for analysis. The Lucky Iron Fish: A Simple Solution to a Serious Problem. The Problem: In Cambodia, much of the population lives on a diet of fish and rice and so suffers from iron deficiency, leading to anemia and other serious health conditions.

The Lucky Iron Fish: A Simple Solution to a Serious Problem

The simple solution is to cook a small piece of iron in the same pot with a meal for 10 minutes, providing 75% of the iron a family needs. The dilemma was that people were happy to use the iron slab as a doorstop but wouldn’t toss it into the cooking pot. The Solution: Fashion the small piece of iron into the shape of a fish, a cultural symbol of hope and good fortune in Cambodia. Initial Results: After nine months of trials and tests, a 55% drop in iron deficiency was recorded. Additionally, the project is sustainable, featuring recyclable materials and adding jobs in the local community to package the iron fish.

The Design: The Lucky Iron Fish was designed by Canadian science graduate Dr. To distribute the product and spread awareness, the Lucky Iron Fish company was established.

Janet PhelanActivist Post Along with generally unstable governments and economic woes, the developing world has another, somewhat insidious problem: plastic pollution. International corporations, seeking markets in developing countries, bring along with them a particular form of “baggage”—waste products and refuse. Coca-Cola bottles, Frito bags, Twinkie wrappers—in large part, the packaging solution for multinationals is plastic.

The developing world largely lacks the infrastructure in place to deal with this petrochemical polymer influx and plastic garbage has become a major environmental concern, with the impact felt world-wide.
