Middle Bay Sustainable Aquaculture Institute will carry out a demonstration project designed to assess the technological feasibility of closed containment production, and to provide data that will allows us to model/analyze its potential commercial viability. Because closed containment aquaculture production would substantially eliminate the potential for interactions between farmed and wild salmon, it is an important potential solution to the problems posed by open net-cage aquaculture systems.
