Aquaculture Researchers Look to Algae-Meal Fish Food to Improve Sustainability

published on Aug 22, 2018
Researchers at Dartmouth College are now looking to algae in order to replace fishmeal in aquaculture fish food. Aquaculture currently uses more than 80 percent of the world's fish oil and fishmeal. The hope is that once the technology is developed further, algae could replace fishmeal entirely, improving sustainability for aquaculture on a global level...

Aquaculture expected to grow 40 percent worldwide by 2030

According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, aquaculture is set to increase by 40 percent worldwide by 2030. With 5.8 percent annual growth rate during the period 2001–2016, aquaculture continues to grow faster than other major food production sectors, but has slowed some since its peak in the 1980s and 1990s....

UV Sterilization in Aquaculture

published on Jul 25, 2018
UV sterilization helps keep the numbers of disease-causing organisms in the water column in check and reduces the risk of cross contamination among tanks. UV is especially useful in RAS (Recirculating Aquaculture Systems), because UV treatment only takes place within the UV housing, leaving no residual to come in contact with the animals in the system. ...

At PAES W.A.T.E.R., the team harvested leafy greens from the outdoor aquaponics system, which consists of four 800-gallon fish tanks where water is cycled through and clarified to remove the solids. ...

Seeding a Biofilter at PAES W.A.T.E.R.

published on Jul 5, 2018
In recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS), biological filters (or biofilters) are needed to treat ammonia, the primary waste product of fish. The biofilter provides a habitat for beneficial bacteria that convert the ammonia to less toxic forms, nitrite and nitrate. Join us in this step-by-step demo of seeding our biofilter at PAES W.A.T.E.R....
