innovate uk

We are pleased to announce that Nova Q – along with our partners at the Scottish Association for Marine Science and Great British Prawns – have been awarded funding for a £240,000 project looking into improving the functionality of RAS biofilters. Innovate UK – the UK’s innovation agency – are co-funding the project.

Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS) are on-land, tank-based aquaculture systems. They are highly sustainable, but water quality issues are currently limiting their potential.

Blue Planet Ras
Nova Q have developed our innovative RAS Right range of bacterial products to improve the reliability of the water quality in RAS.
Great British Pawns
Great British Prawns are a pioneering aquaculture company who have built the UK’s first RAS King Prawn farm.
We are excited to be working with them and the internationally respected Scottish Association for Marine Science to gather more data to support these innovative new aquaculture systems.

RAS are also a major part of the salmon production process before the fish are moved to the more familiar sea-cages. Nova Q are currently developing a project with the University of Stirling and some of the largest salmon producers in Scotland to build on the work of the Shrimp project. We’re applying for funding at the moment. ?
