Abstract

The recirculating aquaculture system has the potential of becoming the most environmentally friendly solution to the problem of increasingly demands for seafood and aquatic species as food across the world. In its pure form, the current systems are energy intensive and marginally profitable. A study of the aquaculture and agriculture industry provided some ideas for modifications to the pure recirculation system which would result in a more efficient, sustainable, and more profitable operation.
