German photographer Bernhard Lang takes amazing photos of orbicular fish farms. The odd, ovoid enclosures look like abstract geometric layouts, barely linked to the flourishing ecosystems of fish which lay just under the surface. Aquaculture is viewed by many as a more effective approach to securely breed bigger volumes of fish rather than harvesting wild inhabitants, but worries about the ecological impact near farming websites have increased a lot of queries.
