Wait whaaaaaat? That's amazing! It makes me think, there's an ancient city that was built on a lake right? And now it's filled in. But what if this is what they were doing, and didn't fill it in deliberately, at least in antiquity? I forget the name of the city but it's one of those super important ones. Brain fart.
You can see with only one eye open, but you'll probably run into things and stub your toe. The big picture matters.

The ancient city is Mexico city the most populous place on earth when Spaniards stumbled upon it and apparently according to some is again the most populous. The chinampas feed and in antiquity fed the people of Mexico City
I think permaculture and aquaponics is a great place for chinampas.
As for Ocean Restoration, I think "permaculture" is a good starting place. It might be "cider press" if it's something that might invite a bunch of trolls to try to post. But, since it's a documentary, "permaculture" is probably the best forum. If I think of a more appropriate forum, we can always add the thread to that, too!
Interesting - so ocean restoration hasn't hit here. I was the first to include it in permaculture and it's slowly spreading. The fact is the coasts are the leverage point of the oceans and that's why we've been able to affect them so greatly, so as part of the advanced permaculture curriculum that I teach with dozens of experts from around the world we include it but only because we have folks in those areas who are experts.
