Local River is a concept created by French designer Mathieu Lehanneur which encompasses what refers to as a "domestic '"refrigerator-aquarium”' that breeds freshwater fish for eating and grows vegetables at the same time." They further state that the Local River was, "Inspired by the Locavores movement of people who source food grown locally to avoid pollution and ensure freshness, the project would allow people to produce their own food at home.Vegetables growing in floating pots would help purify the water by removing nitrates and other minerals."

This is a very interesting concept. But how feasible is is? Is it doable? Again, the concept is very engaging and very out of the box but I just don't feel good about it.
