Fish farmer dreams of saving ocean | TODAYonline

Fish farmer dreams of saving ocean | TODAYonline: "Launched four years ago, Onhand Agrarian supplies a variety of seafood — from fish such as sea bass and grouper to pricier catches like lobsters, prawns and sea grapes — to pet shops, restaurants and walk-in customers.

Its Changi quarantine site and a 40,000 sq ft farm in Lim Chu Kang produce at least 80kg of seafood per cubic metre of water. For the same amount of water, they also produce eight times more fish than regular fish farms, said Mr Lim, the company’s managing director.

The farms are so productive because they run on an Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture System (IMTRAS), he explained. IMTRAS allows waste from an organism to be recycled as food for another, creating an ecosystem of various species."
