While the world continues to wait on massive land-based salmon farming projects to come online and succeed, smaller players in the seafood industry have been meticulously chugging along. And some that are succeeding may be giving investors the reasons they need to remain bullish on recirculating aquaculture system (RAS)-based seafood operations.
"There hasn’t been any innovation that is supercharging the investment channel, but people are starting to see the de-risking of the technology," Brian Vinci, director of the Conservation Fund’s Freshwater Institute, a non-profit research and development group focusing on land-based sustainable aquaculture, said in an article featured in the brand-new, 125-page "Land-based Salmon: Aquaculture' New Disrupter" report, which provides the most current and most comprehensive analysis of the fledgling sector.
Vinci identified several small land-based companies he said are demonstrating that RAS technology is working and that they're able to de-risk their technology by dealing with maturation issues or identifying the best genetics or best feeds.
"It seems there have been enough failures at this point, the successes should start coming more frequently," he said. Even having a few land-based salmon operations producing at smaller scales is showing investors that projects are now starting to succeed more than fail.
