Nutrient recycling

In the production process remaining nutrients are used to gain new valuable biomass. By the integration of food chains, which are simultaneously product chains, an efficient resource use can sustainably improve the profitability of land-based aquaculture systems. Continue

Conservation

The oceanloop reduces pollution of coastal ecosystems and avoids the environmentally-relevant risks of open aquaculture. Farming species, such as sturgeon or coral reef fishes, minimizes the fishing pressure on the wild stocks and therefore also contributes actively to conservation of endangered species. Continue

Eco-efficiency

Eco-efficiency is the quotient of the economic value of production and the effects made on the environment when doing so. This concept demands the maximization of the economical value per unit of "environmental damage". The goal is a more economical production and a simultaneous enhancement of environmental compatibility. Continue
