Our land based fish farming concept
Niri´s unique land based technology has been developed and tested over several years. Our production tanks come with fully integrated recirculation technologies and scalable production concepts. Production can thus be scaled up to multi-ton production of various fish species at a competitive cost at many geographic locations. Niri works with prospecting investors and partners in specialist disciplines to perform prefeasibility studies to evaluate sites and plant configurations aimed to optimise seafood production and achieve synergies with downstream services such as energy production and utilization of nutrients where possible.
Harvesting of renewable energy
For every ton of produced fish there is a residual output of two tons of sludge. This sludge is high in energy and generates no value in traditional fish farming. Niri has developed a concept for integrated production of renewable energy from our sludge. We have thus turned a waste problem and cost factor into a revenue generating business activity that supplements fish production.
The Business and Sustainable Development Commission (BSDC) predicts revenues of up to $125 billion a year from sustainable aquaculture projects by 2030. According to Fishfarmingexpert.com, recent investments in RAS aquaculture were among recent events that sparked the report.
