Cargill Invests $1M in Aquaculture Systems
New lab in Norway will focus on recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS)
Cargill on Thursday announced it has invested $1 million to establish a new lab focused on recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) and the nutritional and welfare needs of salmon farmers, reports IntraFish.
The lab adds to Cargill’s existing innovation center in Dirdal, Norway, where research has been conducted for more than three decades.
According to IntraFish, the investment allows for upgraded independent recirculation units in the lab which enable Cargill’s scientists to conduct continuous concept testing of new feed solutions covering all aspects of RAS production.
