New network on recirculating aquaculture systems

A new network called the Nordic Network is aimed at coordinating and strengthening research and development of Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS) in the Nordic countries. RAS is seen as the future for aquaculture that will allow greater scope for rearing shellfish and finfish but with the minimal environmental impact.

The network will be open to all those involved in aquaculture/fish farming from researchers to feeders to system suppliers and consultants. The network is coordinated by National Institute of Aquatic Resources (DTU Aqua) at the Technical University of Denmark. The steering committee of the network has representatives from Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland. The first year the network is financed by the Nordic Council of Ministers
