About NordicRAS 2017
Fish farming in recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) is a rapidly growing industry and the technology is developing at a considerable pace. An increasing number of large-scale RAS have been designed for production and cultivation of different species in both freshwater and seawater. However, there is still much to learn in terms of designing and operating these systems, including many new challenges that arise when working with saltwater.

At the fourth international NordicRAS workshop, fish breeders, operators, technology & service providers and researchers will present and discuss current developments, experience gained and recently achieved research results.
