Land-based recirculating aquaculture systems offer solutions for sustainability
A shocking majority of the current U.S. seafood supply — an estimated 70 to 85% — is imported from abroad, and experts believe that twice the current supply will be necessary to feed the population by 2050.
In the midst of the current food crisis, which has resulted in an increase in prices and shortages in supply, those numbers show the importance of investing in sustainable alternatives to traditional fish farming — including recirculating agriculture systems.
Nocera, the only U.S. company that manufactures and sets up its own fish farming facilities, has a sustainable solution — land-based recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) that will bring food production and agriculture back to the United States.
The company is committed to a greener world. Nocera’s land-based RAS model offers an environmentally friendly and economically feasible way to bring clean fish to the table while recirculating clean water back to communities. The systems can farm many types of seafood — not just salmon.
Land-based recirculating aquaculture systems —- also known as RAS — are cost competitive, reduce pollution and recycle water. Nocera’s solution fights the food crisis and creates an attractive opportunity for investors at the same time.
The fish are grown in a controlled and traceable environment — without antibiotics or hormones. And the fish can be grown anywhere, providing benefit to various local economies.
Nocera is committed to bringing food back to the table in a sustainable way — and those interested in taking part can make an impact as well.
Nocera’s system is the most affordable on the market right now, and it’s easy to set up. The company’s tanks are easy to install and can use salt or fresh water. There is no sand or mud, the water is clean and there’s no smell.
The company has seven sites approved for Taiwan and plans to expand into the United States this year.
A typical RAS farm takes about six months from development to producing sellable fish. That’s a much faster turnaround time than many other industries — with fruit, for example, it takes five years to go from growing to selling.
Most smaller RAS facilities take just six weeks to set up (larger ones can take up to three months), and the system occupies less land space than existing fish-farming plants. It also takes up less space than existing fish-farming pants and produces sustainable feeds that can be used for other agricultural products.
And Nocera makes the process manageable — the average business owner can purchase 50 tanks which can be handled without a large number of staff.
The company is the only one in the U.S. market to manufacture its own fish farms and raise its own fish. As a result of this vertical integration, the profit margin potential remains impressive. The company is traded on the New York Stock Exchange under ticker symbol $NCRA.
But for many who invest in Nocera, it’s not only about making money — it’s about making sure the world has enough fish and protein to sustain not just today, but for a greener tomorrow.
