Offshore Aquaculture Services
New concepts need time to mature. Fish farming involves risks, but offshore fish farming involves an entirely new set of risks. These news risks must be considered when taking a well-known operation into new and harsher environments.
The new concept requires discussion and analysis. The process entails creating a basic model to see if the concept can survive the global forces from waves, currents, and wind.
It all starts with a location, which sets the criteria for both the concept and construction. These criteria will largely be based upon the weather conditions, such as wave height, water depth, seafloor conditions, and sea currents.
Typical systems include:
- Feeding systems
- Dead Fish Collectors
- Net Washers
- ROV System
- Fish Monitoring
New Rules & Regulations
Taking fish farming to the offshore environment brings the need for new rules and regulations. Thus far, fish farming has not been exposed to large structures, large forces, or exposed areas. These larger offshore constructions also need a different manning and safety focus. Therefore, the current fish farm regulations may have gaps when dealing with this uncharted offshore territory.
High operating costs mostly due to electricity and system maintenance. High upfront investment in materials and infrastructure.
RAS Water Treatment Processes
With the increase in demand for sustainable aquaculture products so does the need to effectively monitor environmental parameters and mitigate any potential harm to fish. Over the past four years, we have been working with some of the biggest producers in ASIA and supplying them with Innovasea’s proven real-time environmental monitoring systems. We now offer an even more comprehensive list of solutions including ROV and autonomous technologies, underwater camera systems, and more.
