Integrated multitrophic aquaculture (IMTA), more precisely the seaweed (macroalgae) cultivation integrated with RAS -recirculating aquaculture systems, is currently one of the most promising lines of action to increase sustainability of fish farms . In our study we analyze the flow pattern in tanks for seaweed culture. Seaweeds are usually tumbled (mixed) by vigorous bottom aeration.

TLDR
The aquaculture industry can protect its own interests – and reap major benefits – by understanding the importance of ecological balance, the potential of seaweeds as components in feeds, andThe importance of the culture and R&D of low trophic level organisms.
