Testbed for large scale land based aquaculture step 2
Research Project, 2021 – 2022

The project will lay the foundation for an investment decision for the world´s most advanced test bed for 1 sustainable, circular, land-based aquaculture. The test bed will contribute to the development globally and is in strong demand by the business community as aquaculture is responsible for a system change as more and more moves to land.

The project will specify, develop and anchor a concept for a test bed
and the end product of the project will be an investment base where key players have anchored ambition and can make decisions about funding, organization and initiation of the test bed.

Expected results and effects:
** Denna text är maskinöversatt **
The test bed will enable large-scale advanced tests where important factors for circular aquaculture (for fish, algae and shellfish) such as. water purification, residual product utilization, automation and construction materials are tested in a closed circular system. Tests must be based on a 1 system perspective, resource efficiency and good living environments with good growth and quality. Tester
Demands a large and sophisticated test bed so that the industry, nationally and internationally, can can take the next step.

Approach and implementation:
** Denna text är maskinöversatt **
The project is divided into five work packages. As the project is relatively extensive and will develop sharp conditions for a large-scale test bed, the project will have a steering group consisting of representatives from the project´s key players. In addition, the project will collect information continuously from other future testers, aquaculture companies, the public sector and authorities. The project strives for an equal distribution of influence and tasks in the implementation, which will be followed up continuously during the project.
