First Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) in the Iberian Peninsula to grow Greater Amberjack together with macroalgae through a new nature-based Seawater Aquaponics solution (IMTA circular technology), with positive water and carbon footprint
Sea lettuce (Ulva sp.) and Nori seaweed (Porphyra sp.)
Excellent food with high content of protein, fiber, vitamin B12, magnesium, iron and iodine. Used in sushi and also a biomass source for production of animal feed. Several sources of bioactive metabolites and ingredients for the pharmaceutical, cosmetic and nutraceutical industries.
Innovative technology to grow macroalgae in the same recirculating system as finfish
- Low energy demand.
- Vertical growth.
- Sequestration of CO2 emitted by fish and microorganisms.
- High efficiency in nitrogen uptake.
- Fast growth (>+15% daily biomass).
Greater Amberjack (Seriola dumerili)
One of the 6 potential game-changers for EU aquaculture. A growing demand and high priced species in Europe with a delicate flavor that makes it a great choice for sushi and other highly sophisticated fish dishes.
Innovative RAS technology improving fish growth and sustainability
- Greater Amberjack is a highly sustainable and certified alternative for fresh tuna.
- Better growth, fish quality and welfare.
- Instead of being emitted to the atmosphere, the CO2 generated by fish and microorganisms is assimilated by the algae.
- Macroalgae recycle water, improving its quality and eliminating wastewater.
- No parasites and no contaminants affecting fish health and quality.
