Cerro pierto, twenty miles south of the united states border, is a large geothermal energy held likely to produce 1.000 megawatts annually by the early 1990’s. This will be well above its initial 1973 capacity of 75 megawatts added two years later to bring it up to its present capacity. However, in addition to the promary purpose to producing electricity, scientists of cerro proeto have developed saveral other uses for the geothermal heat and fluid, including some in aquaculture and hidroponies. In relation to the former , cryfish are raised in water kept at about 850 F. They feed on the minute crustaceans and algaeoccering naturally in the along with small local crayfish that absorb salts harmful to the commercial variety. This variety metabolism is speeded up by the controlled environment, which reduces growing time. The salt-rich geothermal fluid also  produces striking results though the use of hydroponics, with yields of crops such as tomatoes and cucumber as much as 300 percent higher than in normal soil. Meanwhile. A ten-meter-long enclosed shed produces half a ton of barley grass per day, the grass reaching a height of five inches in only seven days from seed.
