Indonesian aquaculture veteran Hasanuddin Atjo has always been on the leading edge of aquaculture innovation. Now he is on a mission to design and build sustainable, industrial level shrimp farms in Indonesia.
“Rabbitfish have amazing potential for small-scale sustainable aquaculture across the tropics: they are easy to grow have high local demand and they are herbivorous and feed on a variety of freely-available feeds.”
Instead of treating and discarding wastewater from food processing, Mark Rottmann, CEO of iCell Aqua, is integrating it with RAS – bringing the industry closer to achieving zero-waste and fully circular protein production.*
The gene editing tool CRISPR is now being used to generate a range of traits in a variety of farmed aquatic species – including salmonids, crustaceans and carp – but there is still a way to go before it is likely to be financially and regulatorily viable in co…
In order for the seaweed industry to thrive and grow sustainably, it needs to be self-sustaining and market-driven, not reliant on the possibility of blue carbon credits, according to Briana Warner, CEO of Atlantic Sea Farms.
The aquaculture industry must continue in its quest to become more sustainable, with greater use of seaweeds in aquafeeds and production of herbivorous fish among two of the most promising avenues to achieve this.
The plant-based seafood segment is moving far beyond soy and corn-based substitutions and can now offer seafood lovers the same taste and experience as the "real thing", according to Monica Talbert, CEO of the Plant-Based Seafood Co*.
Ecotechnolgies, including constructed and reciprocating wetland systems, might offer economical alternatives to RAS, employing some of the same principles as recirc systems, but at the fraction of the cost.
