Recirculating aquaculture system 1
Recirculating aquaculture system no. 1 contains 9 separate tanks combined with a water treatment system (including drum filter, protein skimmer with ozone supply, nitrification filter and denitrification filter). Every single tank has a volume of 3.5 m3. A total volume of 31.5 m³ can be used for the culture of aquatic organisms. The installed process measuring and control technology (MSR-technique) ensures a continuous record of the water parameters temperature, salinity, oxygen saturation, pH value and redox potential.
RAS 1 can be used to run comparative experiments with different species of flat fish and pelagic fish. This system allows the cultivation of different species in one water body to investigate their suitability for the polyculture.
