Guam Green Growth, also known as G3, provided an update on its latest initiatives at its recent steering committee meeting. 

It develops tangible solutions to sustainability challenges and contributes to a green economy for the island region. 

Dr. Austin Shelton, the director of the University of Guam Center for Island Sustainability gave an update on their food security projects.

“We have our extension associate David Crisosotomo leading these efforts from our team here at UOG SeaGrant,” he said. “We’ve announced in the past that we were setting up this community aquaponics system, so we have a couple of them in place. Now, this is our system at Island Girl Power up in Dededo and there are some fish inside getting stabilized Crisostomo will be going back up there to Dededo shortly to add 200 fish to the tank and keep those growing and we have the community volunteers to have this up and running and it will serve as an education tank so that others in the community and the village can set up there own aquaponic systems for their back yards or for their small businesses.”
