Our process is a unique one. We deal with elements of feeding, waste, transportation and logistics, distribution, and communication. BathtubTuna has no shortage of amazing partners that contribute to, integrate with, or benefit from these different functions.
The Biodiesel fuel created from the carbon and alcohol filtered from the bathwater is used by a myriad of organizations to offset their fuel costs. Our BathtubDiesel™ burns cleaner than traditional vegetable-based biodiesel and is up to 15% more efficient.
Tuna are hungry fish. To maintain their natural growth rates, they require eating up to 15% of their body weight every day. When you have an 80 lb. tuna, that can be 150 lbs. of food a week! Across our network of Farmers, we currently distribute over 30 tons of food each month to our farmers. Much of that food comes from donated scraps from local food manufacturers and restaurants. The salvage efforts from our partners produce more than 80% of our necessary volume of food each month.
Our most valuable commodity, however, is our Farmers. Hard working members of our community making sacrifices to help create a sustainable protein source. Some of our favorite partnerships cater solely to the well-being of our Farmers. Many businesses offer discounts or other incentives to our network of participants. Organizations offer monetary relief or help to offset the costs of maintaining the plumbing and construction involved in raising tuna in a domestic setting. Through these partnerships, we're proud to say that for our Farmers, the only cost that remains is their water costs, which-- thanks to our advanced filtration-- is often a negligible increase to their average bill.
