    Sea cicumber ranching is in the deep water is extensive aquacolture. Natural densities will be based on natural food available. There is no plan to supplement their food because it is not necessary.

    Have they done a survey of the tenure area? Will there be enough food to support the numbers they want to seed? Will they show us their survey?
