Design and Construction of Aquaculture Facilities
The design and construction of a production plant for aquaculture depends on a number of factors, including the intensity and size of the production. Production plants can be classified according to whether the production is based on freshwater or seawater, and if it is onshore or offshore. The development stage of the organism may also be used as a basis for classification. A farm may produce eggs, fry, juvenile or on-growing fish ready for market, or it can have a complete production system with all life stages, from eggs to harvesting, on the farm.
