Partial Reuse the focus of workshop agenda

January 27, 2015  By Quentin Dodd

The Conservation Fund’s Freshwater Institute is holding a two-day workshop at the National Training Center of the Bureau of Land Management in Phoenix, Arizona, April 28-29, 2015. The workshop will cover the fundamentals of water reuse systems for fish culture, including circular tank design and management.

         Other topics to be discussed include solids control, oxygenation, carbon dioxide control, water quality, fish health and biosecurity.

         Program organizers, Chris Good and Brian Vinci, both from the Freshwater Institute hope to provide a comprehensive overview of Partial Reuse Aquaculture Systems (PRAS), including evaluating the application of these systems in new and existing facilities, as well as basic design concepts, operation, and examples of facilities that have transitioned to these systems.

         The $600 fee includes a binder of all presentations, a textbook and catered lunch, snacks and coffee each day.

         Registration is requested by March 27, 2015. Contact Margarita Carey at mcarey@conservationfund.org or (304) 876-7924 for more information.
