Infrastructure

The Centre for aquaculture research (ZAF) is operated by the IMARE GmbH. It holds different systems for aquaculture research over two floors of more than 600 m2, as well as a laboratory and a scientific workshop.

Available systems for research projects:

4 recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS), including an Aquaria rack, one integration system, one hatchery system, one microalgae bioreactor and a greenhouse. Each system is supplied with artificially mixed water. This has the advantage to switch the water salinity from saltwater to brackish or even to fresh water condition. A control system continuously monitors varies parameters of RAS 1, 2 and 3. All system errors are reported to the staff via interference signals.
