    The major constrains in rapid expansion of aquaculture around the world are limitations for land and water availability, gradual deterioration of aquatic ecosystems, frequent disease outbreaks and difficulties with sediment and waste water treatment. One important and effective method of fish culture to solve these problems is the rearing of fish in Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS). RAS are indoor, tank- based systems in which fish are grown at high density under controlled environmental conditions to maximize fish growth year-round with effective disease control. These systems are used to maximize production where suitable land or water is limited, or where environmental conditions are not ideal for the particular species to be cultured. In this system water is mostly re-used after mechanical and biological treatment in an attempt to reduce the consumption of water and energy
