Mini-boutique systems offer a low-cost introduction to recirculating aquaculture that combines fry, fingerling and grow-out phases within a single engineering unit designed for modest stocking densities.

A boutique design project validated a land-based, recirculating production system capable of producing 50 metric tons of spotted sea trout per year.
For aquaculture managers, it is important to control carbon type and carbon-nitrogen ratio by feed formulation, solids removal or addition of organic carbon.
Microbead filters are an effective filtration solution that can be scaled to large production systems at a lower cost of operation than fluidized-sand bed filters.
