Refrigerator Aquarium Concept

French designer, Mathieu Lehanneur, created the Local River, a concept for a domesticated indoor river that breeds freshwater fish for eating and serves a vegetable garden, all at the same time. The “refrigerator aquarium” is inspired by the Locavores movement of people who source food grown locally to minimize pollution and ensure freshness of products. With this product, it would allow people to produce food at home. Vegetables growing in floating pots would help purify the water by removing nitrates and other minerals.
