Novel offshore fish farm edges closer to commercial reality
Sector: Fisheries & Aquaculture
Irish company Impact-9* claims to have designed a fish farm which can survive storms, based on an innovative flexible design that also opens possibilities for shellfish and seaweed production to be located further offshore.
The company has just completed a feasibility study, funded by the UK Seafood Innovation Fund, which is administered by the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas).
Impact-9’s CEO John Fitzgerald told delegates at Aquaculture Europe: “It made everything feel real. We are now looking for a pathway to maximise the benefit to UK salmon production”.
