About AquaMaof’s RAS technology
The AquaMaof advanced Minimum Liquid Discharge (MLD) RAS technology utilises several water-treatment patents and filtering techniques to significantly cut water consumption in the fish production process. At the core of AquaMaof’s integrated RAS technology is efficient power management, which dramatically reduces energy costs. Strict biosecurity protocols and complete environmental control eliminates the use of antibiotics and chemicals in the process, and results in high survival rates. Sophisticated flexible design makes the AquaMaof RAS system adaptable to different requirements, with new technologies integrated as they become available.
AquaMaof’s RAS technology is completely scalable, such that implementation in large-scale facilities can be carried out by simply adding modules and upscaling design. Smart selection and allocation of system components result in robust easy-to-operate facilities, requiring minimal maintenance, while optimised feeding modes and an advanced feeding management system enable the reduction of the Feed Conversion Ratio (FCR) and operational costs.
