Development of electro-coagulation technique for optimal cleaning efficiency and maximum reuse of water in land based fish farming

Objective

European aquaculture production has increased substantially over the last decades. However, overall production growth in Europe over the period 1994-2001 was 6.3% APR, 5.5% less than the global trend over the same period. The overall price trend was negative (-0.5% APR) vs positive global development. This sector has experienced increasing competition from non-EU countries, especially Asia and South America has made it imperative to increase research and development in this sector.

Land based fish farming is the critical success factor in intensive aquaculture since land based fish farms are the start of a very complicated value chain representing a prerequisite in order to have competitive sea farms. Further, land based fish farms is the most important "tool" in order to develop and commercialise fish farming of new species since control with water quality is essential. Further developments of land based fish farms are therefore crucial for the aqua cultural sector and its service and technology providers.
