The world is facing a food shortage crisis due to climate change, pollution, and growing population. We need to find efficient, sustainable, cost-effective solutions to feed animals and fish. Aquacultures provide us with healthy animal protein of high quality. Likewise, creating employment and economic growth. Biofloc Technology (BFT) is a water treatment technology used aquaculture. In this system nutrients are reused with lowest water exchange.
