Here’s some of Nofima's scientists and technicians at Sunndalsøra who will work on the long term research project CtrlAQUA. Scientists at Ås, Bergen and Tromsø will also be involved (photo: Terje Aamodt/Nofima).
Workshop

3rd NordicRAS Workshop on Recirculating Aquaculture Systems

Fish health   Nutrition and feed technology   Production Biology  

This biennial workshop on Recirculating Aquaculture Systems aims at bringing together engineers, scientists, farmers, managers, equipment and systems manufacturers, consultants and other professionals with an interest in emerging RAS related issues. It is organised by: the Nordic Network on Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (NordicRAS), the Technical University of Denmark (DTU Aqua), and Nofima.

This biennial workshop on Recirculating Aquaculture Systems aims at bringing together engineers, scientists, farmers, managers, equipment and systems manufacturers, consultants and other professionals with an interst in emerging RAS related issues.

Recirculation technology and the principle of farming fish in closed systems has developed for decades, and systems have been optimized to a point where genuine commercialization has started with increasingly larger systems, e.g., for production of smolt are being constructed.

Consistent with this development focus is slowly shifting from addressing mechanical / engineering related topics towards more integrated and complex issues such as water quality (chemical as well as microbial), optimization of fish health and welfare in RAS, and end-of-pipe treatment. The prospective of constructing not only a farming system but a complete unit that can handle both intake -and especially discharge water and sludge is gaining more and more attention as system size and commercialization increases.

Workshop topics:

  • Diet raw materials & RAS performance
  • Particles in RAS
  • Gasses in RAS
  • Microbial water quality in RAS
  • Fish health in RAS
  • Energy and system optimization
  • Partial reuse RAS
  • Complete system approach

Abstract submission deadline 1 June 2015.

Nofima will organize a field excursion 2 October, to:

  • Lerøy Midt’s facilities in Belsvik
  • Nofima Centre for recirculation in Acuaculture, in Sunndalsøra

Please see the enclosed description below under “Files and links” about the excursion.

Recirculation of water provides extremely good control of the water environment, sensible utilisation of water sources and better protection against infection.
