RAS Talk: Keys to mitigating off-flavour in RAS-raised fish

Justin Henry and John Davidson

As RAS operations across the world ramp up, it is increasingly important to effectively address off-flavour issues in RAS-grown fish. The research is available for effective mitigation measures and many RAS producers are successfully implementing these recommendations. Justin Henry, director of aquaculture at Habitat Life, and John Davidson, research scientist at the Freshwater Institute, discuss some best practices in mitigating off-flavours.

    We designed, built and operate a marine RAS with artificial sea-water (3600m³ total volume per module, 4 modules), without a purge system and you can take the fish (yellowtail kingfish, seabass, sea bream) out of the water without any off-flavour. It is a matter of design but the most important thing is management.
