AquaMaof Aquaculture Technologies has been chosen to provide its recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) technology to West Coast Salmon, an industrial Atlantic Salmon production facility in Reno, Nevada.

The first phase of the project will deliver a 12,600 tonne production capacity HOG (head on gutted) from the second half of 2024.

“We are extremely honoured to take part in this innovative project and to support the West Coast Salmon team and investors on their mission to supply the local market with fresh, clean, healthy, and sustainably-produced salmon,” commented David Hazut, chief executive of AquaMaof.

AquaMaof’s RAS technology provides an end-to-end solution for responsibly-farmed and harvested aquaculture species. These industrial land-based facilities are located adjacent to large cities, reducing transportation costs and associated environmental impact.

The technology promotes sustainable practices such as proprietary water-recycling techniques with minimum discharge and low power consumption. There are no antibiotics or chemicals used in the farming process, which enables a year-round harvest.

The West Coast Salmon project joins other projects currently under development by AquaMaof with a combined capacity of approximately 75K tonnes, mostly for Atlantic Salmon. Among these projects are Grieg NL’s super smolt facility in Canada, Pure Salmon projects in Japan, France and the east-coast of the US, Proximar project in Japan, an Atlantic Salmon project in Germany and a salmon Project in Vologda, Russia.
