Danish recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) technology supplier Billund Aquaculture and German food and agritech startup Aquapurna are starting construction of a new, high-intensity land-based shrimp farm.

For more than three years, Aquapurna has been working together in a joint venture with Billund to develop RAS shrimp farming.

Now, having "surpassed all objectives" in lab-scale trials and commercial prototypes, the joint venture is preparing for large-scale production at high densities, the first module of which will start being constructed in January.
