Fish feed company, BioMar, has created a task force to increase focus on recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) for land-based farming.

BioMar has decades of experience in this sector. As a response to the increased focus on how land-based farming impacted the water quality of creeks and rivers, BioMar developed the product range ORBIT back in the late 1980’s.

“RAS for land-based salmon farming is an emerging segment within the aquaculture industry, and there is still a potential to be realised," explained Carlos Diaz, chief executive of BioMar Group. "

“As a strategic initiative, we have brought all of our RAS specialists into a global task force. They are working together with global as well as local customers accelerating the next generation of feed solutions for RAS," he added.

“We will very soon present new products to the market," he continued. "This task force has as one of the main objectives to ensure we contribute to release the full potential of land-based farming. In order to create a sustainable food future, we need together as an industry to enable a doubling of our production capacity without increasing pressure on the environment, wild fish and agriculture. That is a challenge, we need to address together. We all have a responsibility for adding resources and increasing collaboration," he concluded.

All members of the task force have been selected based upon local as well as global results within RAS and all have 15 to 25 years of experience working within aquaculture as product developers and advisors.
