Prof. Boyd discusses energy use in aeration for aquaculture production systems, along with rates, types of aerators, motors and electricity generation.
While intensive shrimp farms in Australia and elsewhere are sensitive to rising energy prices, global intensification and farming innovations have led to significant improvements in shrimp farm energy efficiency. Important among the changes was the global switch to zero-exchange production
Readily available energy has supported expanded seafood production. Feed production is the major energy-consuming aspect of finfish and crustacean culture.
