Abstract: Stensund aquaculture in Sweden, conceptualized and designed by Dr. Björn Guterstam and Dr. John Todd, was the first European indoor wastewater recycling plant. Its aim was to treat wastewater in an artificial food chain that produced vegetables and fish from the diluted nutrients in the wastewater, based on the concept of "Living Machines" by John Todd and colleagues. The Stensund aquaculture was operated from 1987 to 2000. It did not produce as much food as it was expected in the beginning. The article of 2007 tries to identify possible reasons. Nevertheless, a great number of visitors were inspired by the Stensund aquaculture and gained inspirations from it for their own work, among others the IUNR ecotechnology group.
