New Hampshire uni gets aqua funding

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) will give $355,000 to the University of New Hampshire, UK to invest in new aquaculture research.

These funds will allow the university to research technologies for reducing
damage to offshore cages by marine organisms and to develop new depth control
technologies for optimizing fish feeding, metabolism, stress reduction and
growth.

“We are very pleased with the support of our open ocean
aquaculture research” said Dr. Richard Langan, Director of the Atlantic Marine
Aquaculture Center. Technology for offshore aquaculture has advanced
significantly in recent years; however, we need to achieve greater efficiency
for production of native species like cod, haddock and halibut to be
commercially viable.
