Recirculation aquaculture systems support many fish species, including salmon.

Recirculation aquaculture systems (RAS) promote stable, year-round fish production by offering constant conditions for fish quality and growth, while minimizing the risk of fish escapees. A key aspect for successful RAS operation lies within the nutrition of the cultured species. If the diets are not optimized for the life stage and species in the tanks, excretion of wastes will increase and these will accumulate in the circulating water and so the fish, feed and system must then work together as a whole. A holistic approach can promote optimal fish growth through good nutrition, system performance and fish health. >> Learn More
