  • Indonesia: Opportunity for shrimp aquaculture

    Great opportunities exist in shrimp culture in Indonesia due to land availability and ideal climate. Already, this country is one of the largest producers in the world. Many farmers use AIRE-O2® aerators as their 'aerator of choice' because the 'performance is better than the paddlewheel and the AIRE-O2® aerators keep the bottom of the ponds cleaner,' said the manager at this farm. The P. ...

  • Bioeconomic modelling and salmon aquaculture: an overview of the literature

    Bioeconomic models can be used to assist producers and decision-makers in identifying optimal production system designs, operation management strategies, and alternative development and policy approaches. This paper reviews the literature on bioeconomic modelling in aquaculture since 1993 and builds on an earlier article by Leung (1994) which examines this literature for the 1974-1993 period. In ...

  • Open sea-based Aquaculture case study

    Salmon farming is a multi-billion dollar global industry facing considerable difficulties posed by growing pressure from environmental regulatory bodies. Because marine organisms grow on and “foul” synthetic nets, oxygen available to fish is reduced and infectious diseases and parasites can spread among the fish. A test to study the reduction of fouling formation on netting of fish ...

  • Massive freshwater gains from producing food at sea

    Water scarcity may be the most limiting factor to increasing world food production. Irrigation water is already overdrawn beyond sustainable levels and to increase reliance on rainfed agriculture is risky, even more so with climate change. However, to promote deliberate food production at sea, both fished and farmed, and both plant and animal, requires no freshwater or land. The thousands of ...

  • Salmon aquaculture could incorporate seaweed and sea urchins to reduce nitrogen enrichment

    Farming fish together with seaweed and other species could help improve the sustainability of aquaculture and reduce pollution. A new study provides a tool for designing sustainable fish farming systems and calculates their potential to recycle waste. An example of a salmon farming system incorporating seaweed and sea urchins could reduce nitrogen releases to the environment by 45%. Over half of ...

  • A novel growth method for diatom algae in aquaculture waste water for natural food development and nutrient removal

    Diatom algae are known to play an important role as primary producers in many diverse ecosystems, including artificial aquaculture ponds where they also aid in maintaining water quality by consuming excess nutrients. But factors influencing their growth are still poorly understood. In the present study the effect of micronutrients, N:P ratio and silica concentration on benthic diatom Synedra ...

  • Pilot scale testing of advanced oxidation processes for degradation of geosmin and MIB in recirculated aquaculture

    The presence of geosmin and 2-methylisoborneol (MIB) in recirculated aquaculture systems has a significant negative impact on the fish production due to poor flavour quality of produced fish and increased risk of rejection by fish processers. Advanced Oxidation Processes has a high potential for removal of geosmin and MIB in water and in this study UV/H2O2 and UV/O3 has been tested in pilot scale ...

  • Ghana Fish Farming and Fish Feed Production

    There are two main ways to obtain feed for fish farming in Ghana: locally produced feed and imported feed. However, fish feeds locally produced are in bad quality as most of them are not extruded. Imported feed is appropriately 30% more expensive than locally produced. So importation is not a quick fix. On average the costs for Tilapia farming in Ghana consist of 70% of the feed cost. Therefore, ...

  • Fishing for a Solution

  • Enhancing competitiveness, product quality and market integration of small mussel growers: a South African case study

    The key proposition in this paper is that the competitiveness of small firms operating in emerging economies and producing highly perishable products (e.g. mussels) is largely contingent on their ability to contend with high Transaction Costs (TC). The study examines the role of contracting in reducing TC associated with small-scale mussel farming in South Africa. Market risks, uncertainties, ...

  • Model of an aquaponic system for minimised water, energy and nitrogen requirements

    Water and nutrient savings can be established by coupling water streams between interacting processes. Wastewater from production processes contains nutrients like nitrogen (N), which can and should be recycled in order to meet future regulatory discharge demands. Optimisation of interacting water systems is a complex task. An effective way of understanding, analysing and optimising such ...
