The Future of Farming: How Geosynthetics are Changing Aquaculture and Aquafarming for the Better

Aquaculture, or aquafarming, is farming aquatic organisms such as fish, shellfish, and algae. It is a growing industry, with global production expected to reach 200 million tons by 2030. (Learn More) Geosynthetics are synthetic materials that have become vital in many aquaculture projects due to their many benefits.

Most importantly, Geosynthetic solutions are instrumental to achieving the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) that will set our planet up for success in the future. According to the IGS, applying geosynthetics to the aquaculture industry significantly contributes to the SDGs by improving urban agriculture and aquaculture. (Learn More)

Benefits of using geosynthetics in aquaculture:

  • Water containment: Geosynthetics can line ponds and other aquaculture structures, preventing water loss and contamination. This can save water and reduce the risk of waterborne diseases.
  • Soil stabilization: Geosynthetics can stabilize soil slopes and prevent erosion, protecting fish and other aquatic organisms from harm. This can also help prevent sediment release into the water, which can pollute the environment.
  • Waste management: Geosynthetics can contain and manage fish waste, reducing the risk of water pollution. This can help to improve water quality and reduce the risk of disease outbreaks.
  • Biological filtration: Geosynthetics can filter out bacteria and other contaminants from water, improving water quality. This can create a healthier environment for fish and other aquatic organisms.
  • Cost savings: Geosynthetics can help to reduce the cost of aquaculture projects by extending the lifespan of structures and reducing the need for maintenance. This can save businesses money in the long run.

Why companies are using geosynthetics in aquaculture:

Besides their environmental impact, Geosynthetics offer many benefits that can help companies improve their aquaculture operations’ efficiency and profitability. They can help reduce water loss and contamination, saving companies money on water costs and preventing the spread of disease. They can also help to protect fish and other aquatic organisms from harm, reducing the risk of losses. In addition, geosynthetics can help to extend the lifespan of aquaculture structures, reducing the need for costly repairs and maintenance.
