Next Generation Offshore Floating Fish Farms

Fish farming is booming to meet fish production demands. Traditional nearshore aquaculture has created an environmental pollution problem which not only affect the native marine life but also the health of the farm fish. In view of this, offshore fish farming is emerging as a game changer to eliminate the detrimental impacts on the eco-system while increasing the production of healthy fishes. However, moving offshore has many challenges due to the high energy environment, inaccessibility of power supply and services. There have been many interesting conceptual designs proposed for offshore fish farms and some of these designs are already been tested on a large scale. This research focuses on the development of a mega offshore fish farm. It will be explained in the seminar how this proposed fish farm is different from existing offshore fish farm designs.
