In aiming to achieve economic and environmentally sustainable production, a compromise has to be found between water use, waste discharge, energy consumption and productivity, according to the authors of this paper. It reviews and discusses published studies about energy use and designs efficiencies for recirculating aquaculture systems using a survey about commercial energy use to produce an industry baseline.
