Skretting is sponsoring an aquaculture research facility in Tasmania, Australia

26 October 2015

The site will test the use of recirculation water systems in salmon production, and has specially designed tanks to control environmental conditions including temperature, to examine  climate change effects relevant to local conditions. This will support development of different types of feed and on the control of amoebic gill disease.

The experimental research facility is managed by the University’s Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) and will enable collaborative research, particularly with the Atlantic salmon industry, on fish health and nutrition.
