National geographic just did an article on the region with a nice map and an overview of the Pacific's ecology (Sept 2016)

Also I have made progress on the "leaving the bunker" write up for minuteman.

Bunkertech PRO Steak(tm) Maker Unit
The Bunkertech PRO range of appliances are designed for the inhabitants of the more well off shelters. They produce higher quality outputs than the standard Bunkertech range but require more skilled operators.
This is a self contained unit the size of two large chest freezers. It contains specific beef stem cells that have been cryogenically stored as well as a specialized incubator chamber containing an algae based growing medium. When activated a small amount of beef cells are brought out of cold storage, cultured and placed on the chemically treated growing medium along with a freshly fabricated edible growing frame. The Steak(tm) Maker then maintains the conditions required for the cells to multiply. When the steak(tm) has reached the desired thickness it is sliced off the growing medium and stored in a chilled compartment ready for cooking. The Man of the shelter(tm) model has a small high temperature cooking surface and a free "humorous" apron. There is also a Chickensteak(tm) and a Porkmedallion(tm) model.
Produces
- Six Steaks(tm) every three weeks
Requires
- A moderate amount of power
- A small amount of water
- A prepackaged Steak(tm) Starter frozen cell sample.
- A package of Chemicide(tm) brand growth regulator compound
- One Food unit of Red, Purple, White and Green algae per cycle
- Daily supervision and monthly maintenance by a skilled operator

Buried deep in the fine print, beneath the disclaimer about the standard model providing no means to cook the Steak(tm) produced. There are warnings about using the Bunkertech PRO Steak(tm) Maker Unit without sufficient Chemicide(tm) brand growth regulator compound. Doing this turns the unit into an unregulated supercharged Petri dish.

Heh. This reminds of something I threw into a Fallout game once... an experimental MEATVat unit that just pumped out meat, roughly a 1/4 pound a day. As long as it was connected to power, water, algae supplies, and maintained it kept just shoving cooked meat out the dispenser hole... of course the Vault it was found in was completely automated and had no living people in it... and the kitchen was over hip deep in rotting MEAT product by the time the adventurers found this Vault.
