Circular tank-based recirculating aquaculture systems can be used to effectively culture rainbow trout and other salmonids in a bio-secure and environmentally friendly manner that imposes a much lower water and wastewater footprint than traditional flow-through culture technologies.

Membrane biological reactor technology is a scalable wastewater treatment system that reclaims water discharged from RAS solids-collection devices.
The USDA marine aquaculture center is addressing genetic improvement of North American Atlantic salmon to develop improved lines for producers.
In studies, high dissolved carbon dioxide concentrations in culture tank water induced rainbow trout to swim to an area with lower concentrations.
In a study, a radial-flow settler provided approximately twice the TSS removal efficiency of a comparable swirl separator.
