16/06/2016: Aller Aqua Research expands capacity
Aller Aqua Research has inaugurated new large-scale RAS saltwater tanks.

There are now 300 kg of rainbow trout in the 6 new recirculating saltwater tanks. The rainbow trout are part of an ongoing benchmarking trial.

The 6 RAS tanks each have a volume of approximately 3 cubic metres, and are specifically designed for saltwater trials with sea bass, sea bream and rainbow trout. An added bonus is the possibility of doing trials with large fish.

“The new setup is state of the art. The new tanks enable us to carry out larger scale feeding trails with big fish, and to gather both experience and scientific knowledge under farming conditions. This gives us some interesting options in terms of volume and scale, which adds scope to our trials. We are very excited. Our trial results often have a direct impact on our feeds, which benefits our customers” explains Dr Florian Nagel, Research Manager at Aller Aqua Research.
