Fish farming in recirculation aquaculture systems (RAS) is a fast-growing industry and the technology develops rapidly. An increasing number of large-scale RAS are constructed for production and on-growing of different species in both freshwater and seawater. There is, however, still a lot to be learned on how best to design and operate these systems including many new challenges arising when operating with saltwater.
On the 4th international NordicRAS workshop, farmers, operators, technology- and service providers, and researchers will present and discuss the current development, experiences gained, and recently achieved research results. Workshop topics
- On-growing of different species in RAS
- Saltwater RAS
- Particles and microbial water quality
- Gasses and degassing
- Online monitoring
- Diseases in RAS
- Waste treatment
The workshop starts 12 October 2017 at 10:00 (registration from 09:00 to 10:00) and ends 13 October 2017 at 15:00. Excursion
For those interested it is possible to attend a field trip on 14 October 2017 to state-of-the-art commercial RAS facilities.
