In its third year, scientists, farmers and technology suppliers at the CtrlAQUA Centre have researched and acquired new knowledge about farming in closed-containment aquaculture systems. Such knowledge will contribute to the Centre’s ambition to make closed systems off-the-shelf products.
The overall aim of the project is to expand the knowledge on how the environment affects the biology of farmed fish and develop robust systems that may be used to screen and evaluate the impacts of the challenges related to changing environment.
