ABD - Aquaculture By Design - are custom designed STC-Systems constructed specifically for a particular eutrophic site; and will depend upon the monthly sustainable biomass production expectation of a particular species of macroalgae (seaweed) from our client. The layouts / configurations of these STC-Systems can be modulars, greenhouses, buildings or multi-level parking garages that can handle massive weight of multiple tanks, or pods - low profile /mostly submerged floating greenhouses to phyto-remediate floating fish farms.
It has been found from seven years of research & commercial growing of many different species of seaweed in regards to phyto-remediation of eutrophic aquaculture effluent or nutrient streams that has produced a ratio we have termed a SGR % (Seaweed Growth Ratio %); which is the daily growth rate of any particular species of macroalgae; and its nutrient uptake ability. This has been achieved by knowing ;
It has been found from two years of research & commercial growing of many different species of seaweed in regards to phyto-remediation of a eutrophic coastal watershed with freshwater, brackish water, & saltwater influence with multiple nutrient inputs that;
Long Term Sustainability Facts of a STC-System
Our nine years of sustainable methodologiesof collecting & preparing a variety of seaweed species from nature to be placed in our STC-System; a totally environmental controlled system that works in combination with our Hybridization Period (HP); has enabled our seed stock to become sustainable.What does this statement mean?
Species Successfully Grown with an SSTC-System (so far) Include:
Sea Lettuce (Ulva spp)
Turkish Towel (Chondracanthus exasperatus)
Ogo (Garcilaria spp
Dulse (Palmaria palmata & P. mollis)
Rainbow Leaf (Mazzella splendens)
Wild Nori (Porphyra spp)
Red Spaghetti (Sarcodethecia spp) Carola (Callophyllis spp) Wakame (Alaria marginata)
Sugar Kelp (Laminaria saccharina)
Our seed stock, grown in our Seaweed Seed Stock Bank would be ready in one month time after set-up time of our client's site to attain full production & remediation capabilities.
Due to the many designs configurations of a particular eutrophic site; we decided to explain furhter about one particular design only; because of its versitlity and easy shipping & setting up to be readied for eutrophic water to flow through the STc-System; which are the Modulars.
Modulars are Turn-key STC-Systems re-furbished out of used HC reefer shipping containers or tractor reefer trailers. These Modular STC-Systems come in three sizes; 20-ft, 40-ft, and 53-ft.
Each of these sizes could have various tank capacities but usual layout would have 3-tanks for 3-species or 1-tank for 1-specie.
•20-ft Mods can have three 1,000 gallon tanks or one 3,000 gallon tank.
•40-ft Mods can have three 2,900 gallon tanks or one 8,700 gallon tank.
•53-ft Mods can have four 2.900 gallon tanks or one 11,600 gallon tank.
