Den dybe tallerken - forventes genopfundet

Forskere fra 2 universiteter og det amerikanske landbrugsministeriums forskningsinstitut skal samarbejde med Steve Summerfeldt for at udvikle et recirkuleringssystem til koldtvandsarter!!

USDA scientists join with West Virginia and Maine scientists to (RE-) develop recirculating water

USDA scientists in both West Virginia and Maine will be working together to save water as a part of an effort to develop a re-circulating water systems for cold water fish production.

Scientists from both the Agriculture Research Service and National Cold water Marine Aquaculture Center have partnered with the Conservation Fund's Freshwater Institute in Shepherdtown, West Virginia headed by Steven Summerfelt. They are trying to discover the best way to produce fish that live in cool and cold water in a closed system.

Summerfelt has developed a re-circulating system that does more than just move water around. It uses less than 4% new water everyday , which means that a complete water exchange only takes place every 25 days. Summerfelt has explained that the miserly use of water allows re-circulating fish farm systems to be located in many places where traditional aquaculture couldn't exist. It is also environmentally friendly.

Summerfelts re-circulating system has several advantages over the current systems. They require less water and capture the wastes a fish farm that re-circulates its water can easily be located far from large bodies of water and closer to the consumer.

Akvakultur er fisk i kultur! De skal selvfølgelig have det godt og have noget at spise. Du kan fodre fiskene ved at klikke på din mus over fiskedammen!
