Aquaculture Tank Technology
Am considering the application of octaform aquaculture tank technology. "in the past three years, aquaculture production in australia has increased by 46% in tonnage and 80% in value. The dramatic increase in value is the result of a concentration on high-value species such as atlantic salmon (tasmania), southern bluefin tuna (south australia), oysters (tasmania and nsw) and prawns (nsw, northern territory and queensland). Emerging industries include barramundi, silver perch and abalone.
But it's not just australia that is experiencing this boom. The united nations food and agriculture organisation reported the total world aquaculture production in 1994 reached 25.5 million tonnes valued at us$39.8 billion: an increase in tonnage of nearly 12% on the previous year. It is predicted aquaculture will meet at least 40% of the global demand for seafood in the next 15 years." my investor is able and willing to commit usd$10mill to the pilot project in year one.+11 Other Responses
