“The report findings are fantastic – they almost exceed expectations. We really have hit the bull’s eye here with our concept. That said, products and processes can always be improved, and we must continue to focus on what we can improve and develop even further.”
Ole-Kristian Hess-Erga, researcher at the Norwegian Institute for Water Research (NIVA):
“Artec Aqua has done a thorough job in having its concept documented. The measurements show good results and the recirculation concept can be used in commercial smolt production on equal footing with a conventional flow-through system.”
