The demand for quality seafood and sophisticated consumer purchasing trends have increased. This combined with the environmental and financial risks of off-shore aquaculture create the need for farmers to gain greater control over their operations. Land-based aquaculture is a solution for aquaculture companies to reduce risk, while maximizing profitability.
Utilizing advanced recirculating aquaculture systems allows farmers to achieve a farm-to-table strategy by locating facilities on land near key markets. This reduces shipping costs and shortens delivery time frame, while offering consumers a superior fresh product.
Land-based aquaculture facilities create a means of producing seafood with a minimal impact on the fisheries and the environment, while reducing the carbon footprint of conventional seafood supply chains.
Membrane Group’s RAS Water Treatment System creates a highly controlled environment based on innovative recirculation and water treatment process. This creates a controlled aquaculture setting to optimize growth, feed conversion ratio (FCR), and overall fish survival.
The efficient waste water treatment and recycling design can help improve fish production with a reduced footprint when compared to conventional RAS designs.
