As the world’s population grows, demand for marine products continues to rise. But fishing on Earth’s oceans peaked around 1985, and aquaculture yield has also stagnated as the availability of suitable fish farming locations becomes tighter and ocean temperatures rise.
It is obvious that as the world’s population continues to climb, the supply of marine products from existing fish harvesting methods alone will not be enough. To help ensure an adequate global supply of tasty fish that is safe to eat and always easy to obtain, FRD Japan aims for the establishment of next-generation fish farming businesses using our own closed recirculating aquaculture system (Closed RAS).
A number of large scale land-based aquaculture projects are making efforts in different parts of the world, but none has yet been known to be profitable. One major difference between them and the development being promoted by FRD Japan is that FRD’s method uses no water from the sea or wells. Instead, its patented technology uses a highly advanced biological filtration system, making it possible to farm salmon and other fish species in a completely closed system where artificial seawater is recirculated. (The rate of daily water replacement is approx. 0.2%.) No water is drawn from the sea, and no well water is used, thereby offering the advantages listed below. These advantages are seen as prerequisites for the financial viability of land-based aquaculture.
