"Aquaculture, the farming of aquatic organisms including fish, molluscs, crustaceans and aquatic plants, is the fastest growing food production sector in the world. Grounded in science and technology, this market-driven sector has emerged to provide consumers with the taste, value and convenience in seafood products similar to that which they have come to expect from other commodities. Moreover, at a time when global fisheries can no longer be depended upon to provide stable employment in coastal communities, aquaculture generates safe, high quality seafood for consumers".
"Land-based salmon farming is closer than ever before to being a financially viable alternative to traditional net pens, according to a report by DNB Markets.
With supply growth from traditional farming dwindling due to biological challenges and tighter regulatory controls, and new licences expensive or impossible to secure, land-based is increasingly an answer", wrote analysts Alexander Aukner and Tone Bjornstad Hanstad.
"Low water requirement - can utilize small water sources and/or be connected to the public water supply.
The system can achieve optimal temperature and enables optimal and stable production all year round, independent of seasonal variation, this makes the production predictable for all 365 days.
The required area for a given production is relative small, because a very high density and a high growth rate is possible in the controlled environment.
Reduced risk of diseases, all incoming water is disinfected in addition to UV disinfection inside the farm.
Optimal and stable production secure high and stable quality of the fish.
Control and traceability
The incoming water can be treated to achieve the desired quality.
The effluent can be reduced to a minimum, and therefore be controlled.
Sludge from the system can be treated to produce an odour free fertiliser with desired dry matter content"
