AquaMaof RAS System

AquaMaof Aquaculture Technologies Ltd, a world leader in Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) technology, has announced the launch of a new RAS facility in France for the production of Atlantic Salmon, commissioned by 8F Asset Management Pte. Ltd.

The 10K-ton French facility is currently at the design stage, with the first eggs to be put into the system by 2021 and the first harvest expected by 2023. This new facility joins other under-development projects with a combined capacity of 60K tons of Atlantic Salmon annual production. AquaMaof is now working on facilities in Canada, US, Japan, Russia, central Europe, South East Asia, and Chile.

The company\’s Vice President of Marketing & Sales, Shai Silbermann, said:

\’We are excited to kick off this project that will integrate all the latest advancements in RAS technology. These projects will provide important local production capabilities to markets that today import the vast majority of their fish and seafood.

\’Today more than ever, the capabilities of maintaining a clean, bio-secured, disease-free environment in fish and seafood production, as well as enabling local production in a time of disrupted food production and international supply chain and transport, are much sought after. Governments, investors, and big retailers are seeking food-production technologies that promote food safety and local production capabilities.\’

AquaMaof’s RAS technology provides a solution for responsibly-farmed and harvested aquaculture practices, for various aquaculture species. Its facilities are strategically located adjacent to large cities, which dramatically reduces transportation costs, and produces fresh, natural, and high-quality fish at competitive prices. The company promotes sustainable practices that include proprietary water-recycling techniques with minimum discharge and low power consumption. There are no antibiotics or chemicals used in the farming process. AquaMaof’s Integrated RAS technology enables year-round harvest.
