Iceland's Laxey to build new RAS facility on Vestmannaeyjar Islands

Icelandic national power company, Landsvirkjun has signed a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for renewable energy to develop a new land-based aquaculture facility on the Vestmannaeyjar Islands with Atlantic salmon producers, Laxey ehf. The RAS farm, billed as a high-tech food production facility aims to have a "significantly low carbon footprint".

Study shows impact of nitrate exposure on juvenile turbot intestinal health

New research shows that exposure to nitrates in recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) in juvenile turbot induces intestinal inflammation.  To evaluate the histopathological dynamic alterations of the intestine of turbot (Scophthalmus maximus) after exposure to nitrate, paraffin sections were observed and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) was conducted.

Five freedoms of animal welfare in RAS

Favourable fish growth and performance metrics do not necessarily confirm that acceptable fish health and welfare standards have been maintained. However, maintaining good fish health and welfare will generally result in favourable fish growth and performance metrics. » Read More...

Considerations for induced smoltification

As anadromous fish, Atlantic salmon undergo a physiological change as they migrate from freshwater to seawater. This process, known as smoltification, prepares the fish for the seawater environment and leads to a fast growth phase of life. » Read More...
