A combined 25 years of experience at Biota means that we can assist in the development or refurbishment of any aquaculture facility, ranging from design and budget to systems installation and species studies. For example, in the past months we have conducted a comparative study to determine suitable ornamental species for grow-out both in tanks and sea cages. Our recommendations will be implemented in Indonesia as a pilot project to provide a sustainable livelihood for families that have traditionally made their income from artisanal fisheries for food purposes. The aim for this project is to train local fishermen to collect post-settled fish such as Blue Chromis and Pajama Cardinals, and then raise them in cages that are maintained off the local reefs. This, though not technically aquaculture, is a more efficient form of harvest that can help provide an on-going supply of product without much damage to local populations.
