Aquaculture Toolbox

Introduction of the Aquaculture Toolbox developed in the TAPAS project

IMTA experiment on Maltese sea cucumber

The experiment is investigating if a local Maltese sea cucumber species can feed upon waste nutrients from fish farms

Cage inspection at the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research (HCMR) pilot farm

Testing the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV), developed in the frame of the H2020 TAPAS project.

Models to assess carrying capacity of freshwater lake systems

Evaluating and developing a range of approaches from simple equations to more complex GIS-based catchment models.

Developing models for Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture (IMTA) systems

Evaluating and developing models for marine cage aquaculture systems.

Assessing alternate polyculture farm practices on ecosystem services and sustainability

The Marine Institute’s case study assesses Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture (IMTA) at its Marine Research site, Lehanagh Pool, in Connemara.

Semi-extensive and extensive pond systems development

TAPAS is developing models for semi-extensive and extensive pond systems used to grow carp in Hungary.

TAPAS Deployment Retrieval

The TAPAS team downloaded the first data recorded by our current profiler.

Current Profiler deployment

The TAPAS team deployed a current profiler on the South-East border of the fish farm in Malta and was placed on the seabed at 12 meters depth.

Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV)

The TAPAS team is surveying the area of the fish farm in Malta to see what lives beneath the surface using a mini Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV).
