OPEN OCEAN AQUACULTURE
AND NONE OTHER THAN
It is clear that open ocean aquaculture can be an effective option to reduce the nation's dependence on seafood imports, provide jobs for economically depressed coastal communities, and meet the growing consumer demand for safe, healthy seafood.
Facilities consist of systems (e.g., cages, net-pens, longline arrays) that can be free-floating, secured to a structure, moored to the ocean bottom, or towed by a vessel.
Cage mounted autonomous feeding systems have been developed that can operate both at the surface and submerged.
