Aquapolis
On the October 21, 2013, Norwegian companies Futurama and AquaOptima signed an agreement with Lim Shrimp Organization to create ‘Aquapolis‘, the world’s first land based fully intergrated salmon and cod farming facility in Hainan, China.

The aquaculture complex will cover the production of cod and salmon from egg to market size in a demonstration farm and smaller grow-out units will be run and managed by individual farmers.

The farming system will be an indoor temperature controlled recirculating aquaculture system (RAS), with multiple stack in one building, thus increasing the productivity and shortening the length of culture, Djames Lim, CEO of Lim Shrimp Organization, told TheFishSite.
