Boosting aquaculture technology development
in the South Baltic area

InnoAquaTech promotes cross-border development and transfer of innovative sustainable
and environmentally friendly aquaculture technologies in the South Baltic area.

InnoAquaTech pilots

To gain hands-on experience in innovative recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS), four pilot projects were launched as part of InnoAquaTech.
Each pilot focuses on a specfic technology in RAS and is implemented in a South Baltic Sea region.

      First trial with the RAS 500 system completed

      In summer 2017, a small-scale RAS laboratory system, specifically designed for cultivation of whiteleg shrimps (Litopenaeus vannamei), was installed at the laboratory in the Institute of Oceanography, University of Gdansk. The trial looked at two versions of the RAS system: one equipped with a trickling filter and one with a moving bed filter.

      Recirculating nutrients in aquaponics – worm filtration for treating sludge

      As production of farmed animals continues to grow, treating their effluents correctly becomes increasingly important. In many countries the nitrate load of soil and groundwater is already at a critical level or exceeds the official guideline values.  The random distribution of manure as fertilizer accounts for large parts of this load.
