Agri-retailers by Franchising Under a Corporate Designation.
Because it is a concern for facility in franchisees be fail safe due to indemnity to Owner/Principal and to its workers in terms of Life Insurance and Worksafe Insurance, there is now a waiting period to evolve design and manufacturing of infrastructural, line components, regulatory components- including appliances (e. g. filters), intake units for inputs, regulators and valves and analytical and software/computerized additions (e. g. even semi-automatic robotics for cleaning and maintenance of trough channeling). No doubt it will require Owner/Principal leadership with assets plus outside investors with corporate investment.
Seagrass Aquaponics/Hydroponics and Fish Farming.
Here, we emphasize the need for balancing out the fish productive output (e. g. sockeye, pink and rainbow trout /salmonid trout spp.; it has been mentioned that salmonids have the upper hand with storage life being up to 2 yrs freezing vs trout over only 3 mos. with transportation and consumption as available in mind) vs. the profitability of horticultural cropping for vegetable produce, fruits like berries (e. g. strawberries).
There are also proposals to grow both temperate and tropical salmonids (e. g. trout salmonids) in aquaponic farms with water hyacinth in pools or "wadi" paddies (fresh water in this case) where eco-farming holds for processing silted water sources for return to ground wells or aquifers, and the water hyacinth crop either planted for fodders to silage for beef, or dairy herding, swine hog farming or greens for poultry to improve survivability and through nutrition. For phytopharming (e. g. phytochemicals as with antioxidants and cardionemic drugs) there is the matter for using crop spraying of biologic - B12 conjugated drugging before harvest and recycling the residual byproduct for greens for swine and poultry, for e.g. The salmonid crop can also be treated regularly with special fortified feeds for HIS, ARG and LEU in their pellet feeds which are semi-automated delivered by injection grid matrix sprayed in crumble form below the crop cover to the feeding fish who take to the incoming feed pellets in waiting for feed. We need proof at this time if there is any possibility of using pellet-delivered biologics, instead, through the fish's digestive tract of salmonid GRH/GH and gathering data for growth/development parameters including body weight gain/day which presents even an advance of tremendous import cf. to the previously proposed feed interventive.
The life cycle for the facility for salmonids:
1) Spawners/Eggs/Alevin (with yolk sacs) utilizing a "brood stock green tank" and hatchery room with water lines and attendant support equipment like filters and backup power generators with valved controlled lines and arrayed tray carts for raising the salmon eggs.
2) Rearing "Capilano" Troughs to Rear Fry to Fingerlings with Charcoal filter, backup power generators, O2 supply tanks/O2 electrodies or probes, bubblers, pump/recirculators/filters, scrubber brushes, nettings or nets, transfer buckets or pails, weighing scale with tare feature, crumble feed, mechanical timer feeders, handlers, temperature thermistors.
3) Smolts (take up to 6 mos. to raise before fisheries farming cycle) are obtained from agri-retailers to be housed and raised in 1.5' - 2' diameter x 3.5' - 4' (headspace) channeling (C) troughs in PVC with a special "E-Z clean" hi-tech replaceable adhesive liner, with plans to present in future ducting (tufting trays or inserts, "valved" controlled for convenient retrieval through its sliding hermetically sealed features or mechanism; note: in future further robotic amphibious scrubbing is installed per setup for the sectioned C-troughs mounted after media and stocks emptying and liner stripping), the channeled lines have a continuous pump/filter device attached for each cleaning maintenance cycle when the pipes are in "segregated" modality by moving "lateral dividers" and dismounted for liner removals. Initially, the "accelerated" GRO smolts are to be raised to adulthood (in 2.5 yrs) in staggered fashion every 6 mos. harvesting time intermittently (0.5 yrs before next set up and harvesting cycle) every Spring (May) and Fall Season (November).
4) This begins next cycle when more smolts are purchased from our agri-retailers in fisheries (e. g. the big fisheries on the coastal areas and their hatcheries) are purchased; we will nevertheless describe the beginnings of a hatchery and its attendant components and water lines; our recommendation is to specialize operations to manage total operational costs in the industry although this will require more consultative planning. We wonder if the 'more-the-merrier' principle hold in terms of diversity, quality of manpower and eventually the quality of work life in our workplace.
Rearing Facility: The verticle stack channel trough arrangement is where the fish swim in the upper chamber, tuft trays stay as inserts at the base, automatic fish feeders sparge feed particulates over the dead space (non-valved ceilinged fitting) with seagrass tufts grown to a critical density and in 3 layers, 6" high in suspension, the configured layout for the C-troughs being commodiously layed out stacked 4 high to a 20' ceiling clearance, no length specified, except there is a pump regulator or window at 1 in 3 lateral junctions to drain by passing out the chambered aqeous media and drain H2O "upstream" along the line when servicing is allowed; robotic arms for elevation and deconstruction of sectioned C-troughs which are mobile at the base of the rearing section without any obstruction.
Water Resources: River or sea as successively filtered or from well water from a spring, stream or pond or municipal supply line (no chlorine; may require filtration). A back-up towered reservoired supply line may serve in case of emergencies and to provide line pressure to the facility (in case drying in the weather and less water available; although this is limited and only may serve a hatchery room). Pumps are required to provide water pressure and flow, UV filters to kill microganisms that can cause disease, electronical battery power generators.
Workshop Area: To hold accessory tools and equipment/gear for routine maintenance and repair and technical support. Emergency control in case of damage or flooding.
New Technologies for Robust Salmon Rearing Using Organic Feeding with Yeast-based Feeds and Genetically Regulatory Organismal (GRO) Salmonids: Fine Biochemicals akin to TFs in Metabolic Regulation are being proposed here. These have already been proposed with hi-producing or volume, hi-milk solids milk production using GRO bovine and water buffalo dairy animals which could be marketed as high-end, medicinal mass liquid product vs food product from milk through further processing to help secure the food supply.
Disease control will be covered elsewhere involving now issues in coastal outlier fisheries off the Coast of British of Columbia with sea lice and viruses which can infect in closed intensive conditions and kill salmon stocks like zoonoses has dealt its blow on millions of culled poultry farms in B.C. and African swine fever virus (ASFV) infections with swine hog producers in Vietnam and the Philippines. Currently, apart from the wild northern Pacific salmon catch off Alaska, for e. g. marketed in B.C. there is also for export Atlantic salmon stocks heading for Europe from fisheries in B. C., the latter being of concern here. It is not known if increased fish farming activity and/or the process of passing time has led to this real or potential threat.
Duality of "Conventional" Aquaponics Farming: More on hydroponic horticultural vertical farming as an accessory to Salmonid/Trout Fish Farming inverted configured with plants exposed to atmosphere on top and fish underneath like the conventional configuration using also C-troughs of 2.5-3.5 feet in headspace and in stack in an organized facility with semi-robotized maintenance augmentation in this case expanding with reason due to not providing enough square area on channeling troughing but need expansion further beyond limits with specialized troughs as has already been pilot-tested in London in their Underground system tunnels and roadside bus shelters that were converted to urban intensive horticultural growing zones strategically located under supply chains in the city. It is rumoured that the roses and orchids are industries as growth areas in addition to our locally grown veggies: carrots, strawberries, blueberries, bell peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, and squash.
The dairy agri-retailed fodder troughs are recharged (6-8)x with greater frequency than maintenance for the dual aquatic fish/horticultural troughs to maintain fodder output for production.
