We build and operate based on a local and environmentally conscious approach while implementing the use of top technology
Why choose an RAS?
RAS refers to Recirculating Aquaculture System and describes a series of techniques for fish farming in which we can manage:
- …Fish welfare
- …Pollution free farming
Why is standard better?
These systems are based on a standard concept linked to the most up-to-date knowledge in the aquaculture sector.
With standardization of main components, we achieve replication, and with it a base line and an expansive and exponential pool for knowledge development, specialization of systems, and optimization.
By working with modules at ALPHA, we are taking the extra steps needed to avoid down-time of operation, increase safety by redundancy, allow isolation of production within the same system, and create a system that is prepared for expansion, updates and upgrades as we develop them. It’s time to think ahead and walk the future now.
