Washington, D.C. – A new hatchery may be in the works for Branzino producer Ideal Fish in Waterbury, Connecticut.
Washington, D.C. – RAStech 2019 conference and tradeshow was held May 13 and 14 and attended by nearly 275 aquaculture professionals from 21 countries. This RAS-focused event brought together industry, academia and suppliers to engage, network and share knowledge about the current and future prospects for recirculating aquaculture systems. 

Join us again at RAStech 2020, to be held on Nov. 2 and 3, 2020, in South Carolina. Check back with us at for updates. In the meantime, here are some highlights from the event in snapshots, plus check out our editorial coverage.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) and developments in biotechnology will help address the world's increasing food supply challenges, said Sylvia Wulf, president and CEO of Aquabounty in her keynote address at RAStech 2019.
Membrane biological reactors (MBRs) are used for municipal, industrial and agricultural wastewater treatment to remove nutrients, organics and solids from concentrated effluents. MBRs utilize fine-pore membranes (typically < 0.1 µm) that create a clean, low-solids filtrate, while associated aerobic and anoxic processes functioning within an activated sludge facilitate nitrification and denitrification, respectively.
The potential of aquaculture as a sustainable food production system is very promising. This is a statement I often hear at aquaculture conferences and events.
Spots are now completely sold out for the highly anticipated RAStech 2019 Conference being held in Washington, DC May 13–14.
"Sustainability” and “sustainable” are popular words these days, but often misused. We understand it as producing food while sustaining natural resources and achieving it only through production systems with minimal ecological impact.
Feed is the primary external input to recirculating aquaculture systems. It is therefore essential to design the feed correctly, as in RAS, we are not only feeding the fish, but also feeding the system.   
Just a few years ago, someone touting the commercial viability of raising fish exclusively on land would have raised a lot of eyebrows. Today, the general attitude toward land-based fish farms – in various forms and sizes – is optimistic, particularly for salmon.
Get a seat at the table to discuss the practical economic realities of RAS at the RAStech 2019 Conference being held in Washington, DC May 13–14.
Hello readers and I hope we all have great experiences in this new year 2019. I think some of these exciting experiences will be centered around recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) technology and farms.  
Highly prized for sashimi, sushi, nigiri and Peruvian recipes, such as ceviche and tiraditos, the Yellowtail (Seriola lalandi) has found a great ally in recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS), which seems to be a perfect match for rearing this species on land.

Join fellow industry professionals from across the globe in this exclusive session on aquaponics at the RAStech 2019 Conference being held in Washington, DC May 13–14.
NEW ORLEANS – Aquaponics was a big feature at Aquaculture 2019 held in this city March 7-11, with presenters highlighting the system's potential for addressing the world's food security challenges.
