In the last few decades aquaculture developed into an alternative to cover the increasing human demand for fish. In the last decades marine aquaculture (mariculture) has grown at an average of 9% per year. Considering the rising demand for fish and the over-exploitation of global fish stocks, a further growth of mariculture is not in doubt. However, the growth of conventional mariculture systems along the coasts will be limited and the future demand can be only satisfied by new concepts and technologies.
For the first time the oceanloop, developed by neomar, allows the inland production of seafish without access to natural seawater. It is an alternative to conventional fish farming in open water aquaculture systems. The specially produced seawater is continuously circulated and recycled. The water loss and the impact on the environment are minimal.
