Carbon-neutral Aquaculture

The Icelandic company is using land-based aquaculture to reduce the negative environmental consequences associated with wild fish farming. The carbon-neutral fish farm relies on excess hot water from nearby geothermal power stations for its energy needs and has a strong focus on fish health, meaning zero use of antibiotics, hormones, or chemicals. Matorka is in the process of designing another 3,000-tonne multi-species aquaculture system, incorporating further circular design principles to make use of wastewater and unused organic material.

This solution was featured in Alternative Aquaculture market of the 2018 Global Opportunity Report, and was selected based on the criteria of that report.
