Rushing Waters Hatchery featured in video produced by Prairie AquaTech
As part of their extensive two-year feed trial with Rushing Waters Hatchery, Prairie AquaTech has been working on solving crucial challenges in aquaculture operations. Two of those challenges, phosphorus discharge and plant-based protein imprinting will be the subject of two future videos.
In the meantime, operating partner Peter Fritsch explains his renown farm and hatchery!
Prairie AquaTech attended the Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA) annual GOAL conference in Guayaquil, Ecuador.
Though the conference focused on global shrimp production (Ecuador is world leader in this $40 billion dollar industry), important aquaculture trends, forecasts and species-specific reports were shared to the audience.
Key takeaways for Prairie AquaTech were particular opportunities involving shrimp nutrition and areas of aquaculture advocacy for 2019.
