Sea-CAP will be a new floating contained marine farm to grow salmon in the optimum environment. The project aims to focus particularly on control of water quality, exclusion of external biological factors which can impact on fish health and preventing pollution from faeces and waste feed.
The project aimed to develop a prototype design for a new floating closed contained marine fish farm, which would:
This has been achieved through engagement with an industry steering group to ensure that all avenues were considered and incorporated within the design. The innovation is now ready to develop the detailed design for site specific conditions, and on to construction of the prototype to allow proof of concept to be demonstrated.
