FUTURE OF AQUACULTURE


We believe the future of sustainable aquaculture is out in the open ocean

Moving the platform miles offshore means staying away from sensitive ecosystems, eliminating nutrient and waste build up, and minimizing the risk of disease. Bottom line its better for the environment and for the fish.

 People have harvested freshwater fish since time immemorial… But farming species in seawater dates back only a few decades, as does freshwater aquaculture operating on an industrial scale. Now fish farming is booming.

To meet market demand and comply with customers’ expectations, we need to operate better, more efficiently and with less impact on the environment.

New technology, improved information and knowledge, coupled with a strong desire to be a world leader in farming practices as we grow our business sustainability and profitability.

Data (2011) and projection (2030) based on WorldBank & FAO (FishStat and IMPACT) statistics from 2013 (in mln ton).

As it shows, the global production of fish from aquaculture sources is projected to grow by almost 30% by the year 2030!

AQUACULTURE OF TODAY


Current information about the seafood industry

Did you know?

University of Maryland created a system that recycles 99 percent of its water – this is called RAS (recirculating aquaculture system). The system only needs tap water and salt components, it controls temperature and pH, and does it all for each specific species of fish. It filters waste products from the fish through different microbes in order to detoxify the water and creates methane as a supplemental biofuel.

Open sea fish cages seem to resolve most of the present-day problems that open-air pens are facing:

  • fish live in natural conditions – no artificial environment is needed and no additional costs apply for water, electricity, etc.,
  • fish are still separated from the “free” ones – no mixing of species occurs and no diseases spread,
  • fish can still be fed special feeds by humans and can still swim, breed and defecate naturally – no limits are imposed so fish are simply happier.

According to the NPR.org portal, a possible way to reduce fishery’s environmental impact is to develop fodder for farmed carnivorous fish with a larger percentage raw material from alternative sources. It may involve plant, algae or yeast-based feed – where the yeast, for example, can be grown on waste products from the paper industry.
