Ariel Fishers, owner of Ariel Fisheries in Canada, is leading the charge to transform the industry by developing a novel fish farming technology, which could drastically improve fish stocks in the Northern Hemisphere.
In an interview with the International Business Times, Ariel Fisher said he and his company have developed a system that will allow fish farmers to directly harvest their own fish and convert it to a sustainable product that can be sold locally.
“The idea is to go to the source and start from scratch,” he said.
“You have the fish, you have the land, you’ve got the machinery, you know the processes that are used in the process.”
Ariel Fishers said he was inspired to tackle this problem by his own experiences growing up in the fishing industry.
“I went to a school that was a fish school and I got a taste of it,” he explained.
He said he quickly became fascinated with fish farming and the impact it could have on the ecosystem.
“In my opinion, fish farming is the biggest environmental issue of our time, and it is an issue that needs to be addressed,” he added.
“I think the fish industry of the future is going, is going big, and we need to invest in it.”
“A lot of the things that we’ve done here in Canada have been a reflection of what the fish is capable of doing, and what we can do with it.”
The Aquaculture Research Centre at the University of British Columbia is one of the world’s leading fisheries research centres.
It’s an innovative laboratory that uses aquaculture technology to explore the role of fish in a variety of ecological systems, including marine food webs.
“We are at a very exciting time in the fish farming industry,” said Ariel Fisher.
“We are starting to see the potential in fish farming for improving the efficiency of fisheries and creating new sustainable ways to farm fish.”
Arya Fishers says she has seen the benefits of using fish in her farm’s production system, and that her fish are better for the environment and the environment is better for fish.
“They taste better, they taste better in the supermarket, they feel better when you’re on the farm,” she said.
“It’s a beautiful thing to see.”
In the U.S., the Aquacultics Research Centre has been testing fish farms for nearly a decade and Ariel Fisher is one among a handful of people working to develop the technology.
“Our research has shown that it is possible to directly cultivate fish that are in better shape and better for a variety [of] organisms,” Ariel Fisher told the International News.
“For the farm, we can make them more productive, which is important for people to eat.”
Avalonfish is an experimental fish farming system, which uses aqua-based technology to produce fish.
The fish is produced by using aquacultures to grow and filter fish for the aquacultural process.
Ariel’s system was developed in partnership with the University, which has been using fish for centuries.
“There is so much innovation going on in aquacide, it’s just been kind of a big, slow process,” Ariel said.
The Aquacefarms, which are located in a remote farm in Northern British Columbia, are one of several aquacircuits that will be developed by the Aquacyfarms in Canada.
The Aquacenterfarms aim to produce over 20,000 metric tonnes of fish annually by 2020.
Avalos farm, in the B.C. town of Vernon, employs a variety, including a new method of using aqua for aquacute processing, to create fish that have a higher nutritional value and a lower carbon footprint.
“A fish is not just a piece of meat, it is a living being,” Ariel told the IBTimes.
“I can’t put that into a box and put it on a shelf, but we can use the fish that we raise as food, we don’t need to pollute them.”
