Introduction to Recirculating Aquaculture System
A land-based Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS), is a low impact aquaculture process that has the potential to meet the world’s growing need for protein with minimal effect on the environment. Over the past 30 years, the development of Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS) has made it possible to culture fish under completely controlled conditions, anywhere in the world.
The basis of the technology is the recirculation of water inside a land-based fish farming system, whereby the same water is recycled in a closed circuit, thus minimizing the amount of new water that needs to be added to the system.
The team at Assentoft Aqua has been involved in this development since the very beginning of the recirculation aquaculture industry, thus learning from both successes and failures from existing plants, including salmon plants.
