The Kingfish Company set-up has three LED lights above each tank and a proven light recipe for growing fish to promote steady growth via a controlled system. The fish can see each other and their food, dusk and dawn are simulated very well and the fish experience an endless summer via the software driven control system. The slow ramp up and deep dimming capabilities reduce stress and promotes optimal growth for this highly active fish.
The team spent many years working with Wageningen University in the Netherlands, just to select the right fish species. Their eco-friendly facility uses no antibiotics or vaccines, green energy, heat exchangers and a sophisticated water treatment and recycling technology. With this concept, the company achieved 30%-40% higher production and the confidence to scale up their production.
