Alltech Coppens’ expert guide for RAS farmers

March 11, 2020

Alltech Coppens published a specialized Recirculation Aquaculture System (RAS) guide to help farmers achieve the full potential of their farm. This new guide was created in collaboration with RAS specialists at the Alltech Coppens Aqua Center, specifically for trout farmers. The RAS guide gives clear, detailed, farmer-friendly information on farm design, filters and how to operate them, as well as challenges and the critical feeding strategy.

RAS feeds are characterized by a high digestibility, leading to minimal amounts of fecal matter and high protein retention that minimizes ammonia excretions. As a result, filters can work more efficiently. A true RAS feed makes a big difference in water quality, ultimately maximizing the output of the RAS farm.

“To develop a high-performing RAS feed, it is crucial to fully understand every aspect of RAS farming,” said Gijs Rutjes, technical sales support manager at Alltech Coppens. “Being able to increase the daily feed rate is what every fish farmer wants, as more feed intake equals better growth. In this guide, we share the knowledge and experience we have acquired through our more than 25 years dedicated to R&D,” said Rutjes.
