Encyclopedia description

The Mega-Tank Farm produces mainly plankton, soy beans and herbs (for medical and non-medical applications). Its array of vast tanks, from which it gets its name, its thriving hydroponics and green houses all earn the operation the colloquial name 'green lung'. Just as with other farming operations or plantations, gardeners and workers often bring their families to form stable communities in them. Ideally placed in a solar orbit, the Mega-Tank Farm can also be illuminated with artificial lights.
