Seaweed cultivation is well established in Asia and needs little explanation/justification. In the western world, a renewed interest in seaweed mariculture has been triggered by their cultivation in integrated multi-trophic aquaculture (IMTA) systems, the emerging understanding of the ecosystem services they provide (e.g. nutrient biomitigation, irrigation-less and deforestation-less food pr ...

At the University of New Brunswick in Canada, researchers have developed a pilot-scale aquaponics system to select plants that are best adapted to efficiently recapture nutrients from salmon hatchery effluents. Along the way they’ve developed a novel substrate on which to grow the plants.In many aquaponic systems, it is common to use a substrate such as foam, coconut coir, rock-wool or expan ...
