Sustainable Aquaculture - Scottish Marine Institute

"Turning waste into a useful product is the basic premise of integrated multi-trophic aquaculture (IMTA). By using waste products from fin-fish aquaculture as food and nutrients for other organisms then we can reap the dual benefits of reduced pollution and increased productivity. The principle is simple, the practice however is complex,: ongoing research at the Scottish Marine Institute aims to overcome some of these complexities and bridge the gap between theoretical concept and industrial application."

Nualgi simplifies the use of animal waste to grow diatoms and since diatoms are good food for fin fish, they benefit from the natural feed.
