Consulting
Evaluations
Professional Aquaculture Services (PAS) provides information on the feasibility, design, and construction of new production sites, the expansion of existing ones, and the evaluation of current production facilities. We offer consultation services for large producers, both foreign and domestic, as well as for small fish farms and ponds. Our experienced staff provides onsite help with broodstock development, hatching and fingerling production.

Development
We are always looking to develop additional facilities to produce aquaculture products. The ability to re-use water from fish production in the irrigation of conventional row and tree crops, offers an excellent opportunity for existing farms to diversify. The large market for fish and the availability of technical, management and marketing assistance from Professional Aquaculture Services makes small production sites economically feasible.

Aquaponics
Many are familiar with hydroponics, a method for growing plants in nutrient rich water instead of soil. Less, however, are familiar with aquaponics, a bio-integrated system that links recirculating aquaculture with hydroponic vegetable, flower, or herb production. As defined by Wikipedia,

"Aquaponics is a sustainable food production system that combines a traditional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals such as fish, crayfish or prawns in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment. In the aquaculture, effluents accumulate in the water, increasing toxicity for the fish. This water is led to a hydroponic system where the by-products from the aquaculture are filtered out by the plants as vital nutrients, after which the cleansed water is recirculated back to the animals. The term aquaponics is a portmanteau of the terms aquaculture and hydroponic."
