The development of effective fish farming projects requires
technological input. Aquaculture technology refers to a wide variety of
subjects and fields, which affect the performance of the fish or Shrimp
farming project, and which must be taken into consideration from inception.
Aquaculture technology does not refer merely to knowing ‘how to grow the
fish in the tank’. After all, the intention is to design and construct a
sustainable and profitable venture, which will remain in operation over the
APT’s scope of technological input addresses numerous related issues, some
of them are described herein.
Correct design of a fish farming aquaculture project should take into
account the need to produce alternative crops in the same system. For
example, various strains of a certain species, with different economic
traits and marketing niches, such as various
or ‘Crop Rotation’ by
growing Tilapia in Shrimp ponds.
Correct design of the fish farm should ensure cost-effective operation and
environmentally sound water system and water management. Using the
water system the project benefits by saving electricity, reducing
feed costs, ensuring high water quality and adhering to environmental
standards. When fish farming is implemented near agricultural areas, the use
of integrated fish farming and
irrigation, adds numerous advantages.
Fish farming can bring significant economic development into depressed
regions, especially in less developed countries.
Satellite Farming expansion
is beneficial both to the private sector and local farming communities.
APT brings wide technological capabilities enabling a
Total Project Approach
to fish farming.
