Transformation of trout farming by RAS
It is crucial to have an understanding of the fundamental requirements of recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) in order to best support operations and optimal function.
“It is essential to have excellent day-to-day stock control and adequate feed rates. In general, a feed rate near satiation works best for most species, as it allows high performance without the risk of overfeeding. One should bear in mind that even small amounts of uneaten feed, usually of a high nutrient density, will pollute the water and lower the water quality. Only if optimal water quality is maintained can the fish and the system perform well.” - Gijs Rutjes | Technical Sales Support Manager
