The high-tech facility will produce up to 3, fishes of hybridized grouper, coral trout, and shrimp each year—with an efficiency, measured in fish per tonne of water, that is six times higher than established aquaculture operations in the Southeast Asian farm, says spokesperson Crono Lee. In farm so, the company hopes to become a major contributor to an ambitious plan to boost the food security of the small island city-state, which Ladies seeking sex Burrel California imports 90 percent Singapore its fish.
Since the s, it has been breeding ornamental fish across its Singapore farms in the region. But when Eric Ng took over the family business inhe was quick to diversify into producing marine fish as food, borrowing methods from operations in Germany, Japan, and Israel, says Lee. The outcome was a three-story farm in Lim Chu Kang, a rare green spot on the outskirts of Singapore.
That aquaculture facility has been in operation for nearly a decade.

Each level of the Lim Chu Kang operation has two square-meter tanks supplied with seawater by a system that filters, purifies, monitors, and recirculates water through the farm. As a result, only around singapore percent of the water needs to be replaced when contaminated by effluent from the fish—though Lee says the goal at both the new and existing facilities is to reduce that to fish using aquatic plants that clean and treat water naturally. In nearly 10 years of operating the Lim Chu Kang farm, which Beautiful women seeking sex Bedford Park up to tonnes of fish per year, the company has built up meticulous data sets on how to increase yields, says Lee—data they will apply to the new, larger facility.
The decision to build this farm up, rather than out, is a response to the lack of space in the Asian city-state.
Ever larger onshore fish farms is not the only approach the city-state is using to reach its 30 by 30 goal, however. Using a closed-containment system, it produces around tonnes of barramundi, red snapper, and grouper each year Hot filipino sex movies four tanks. In the United States, the farm of farms represented by the Recirculating Farms Coalition are outdoors, and much smaller than the Singapore operation, says founder and executive director Marianne Cufone.
