Processing Aquaculture System Biosolids by Worm Composting—Vermicomposting
North Central Regional Aquaculture Center
Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS) use less water than open pond systems and the concentrated wastes generated by fish in RAS are easier to collect and reuse. High operating costs limit RAS use to high-value species production. One strategy to improve productivity and offset the high operating costs is to convert the solid waste from the aquaculture systems to more valuable byproducts.
