Recirculating aquaculture systems, or RAS, provide a constant and controlled environment to rear farmed fish. They minimise water consumption, control culture conditions and allow effective management of waste streams. They can also provide some degree of biosecurity through measures to isolate the stock from the external environment.
The rate of adoption of RAS in the aquaculture industry has been growing fast worldwide. The English Aquaculture Strategy from Seafood 2040 highlighted the growing investment in RAS and its potential to become a major contributor to English aquaculture and seafood production. This Aquaculture Common Issues Group (ACIG) bite-size meeting will look at what is happening in the UK.
