Encyclopedia description

Considered one of the main sources of mass nutrition across all sectors and species, plankton is, and will be for some considerable time yet, in very high demand. The tendency to construct ever-larger Plankton Tankfarms continues. For now, however, this version is the largest purely plankton-based Tankfarm in existence. Due to the undemanding nature of plankton, it is easy to run unmanaged tanks of almost any size. No AGI, no AI, nor even gardeners are necessary to run and manage a Plankton Tankfarm; all it needs is alignment at a site in suitable sunlight until ready for harvesting.
