Aquaculture System Development

The engineering objective is to develop recirculating aquaculture technology (infrastructure) that can maintain the environmental conditions required for fish to grow unconstrained (at their full biological potential).

Engineering has two focus areas with specific objectives:

  • RAS plant design – To establish and evaluate the unit processes required for maintaining environmental parameters that permit optimal biological productivity.
  • Live Fish Handling – To develop technology that permits frequent high-throughput low impact handling of live barramundi.
  • Bio-remediation – To develop processes and systems to reduce environmental impact.
