At one time, the production of post-larvae local prawn was a significant driver for both of the southeast Asian nations of Myanmar and Bangladesh. Nearly a decade ago the two nations had more than 100 hatcheries between them. Today, only a handful remain.

The provision of recirculation equipment, design and advice for hatchery developments in relation to shrimp farming research, commercial tilapia production and eel breeding innovations are already on the project CV of LandIng Aquaculture, a specialist recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) enterprise which recently completed its first 18 months in business.

It is an exciting time for a scientist when research meets implementation. And this is exactly why Vasco Mota, a biologist from Portugal, and Jagan Gorle, an expert in computational modelling and flow analysis from India, find themselves at the Nofima facilities in Sunndalsøra.

In a move to create a fund that would source and coordinate financing for aquaculture in Namibia, the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources is proposing to spend some N$12 million ($884,950 USD) on an aquaculture business development and investment promotion agency.

Until now water-recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) – rapidly gaining popularity around the world – have been limited in numbers and scope in Finland. But recently the country’s Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry and the European Union gave the National Resources Institute of Finland (known as Luke) money to set up a new testing and learning facility to focus on recirculating aquaculture systems at Luke’s inland fish farm at Laukaa.

CtrlAQUA, a new centre for innovation in closed-containment systems for Atlantic salmon, was launched earlier this year.
