Editing of the Waterfruits websites (waterfuits.net = distribution, waterfruits.org = science and communication) is currently in progress. All corresponding links lead to a temporary contact page.
WATERFRUITS is NOT a simple raceway based recirculating system. The efficiency are the many, many details. From construction to production.
In general, all species, living in water with not the need of deep-sea water pressure can be breed and reared in this aquaculture system with specific adjustments and feed.
Automatic feeding, medical supervision, delivery on demand in phases of still progressive weight gain.
The basic system is suitable for various round fish in fresh and sea water. With appropriate parameterization and size adjustment, as well as adaptation of the raceways, further animals as shrimp and flatfish can also be integrated into and processed by the system.
The investment sums are not comparable to net cages. The parameters of security, stability, weight losses and weight gains - either.
Plans of Investments and returns are made for several regions in the world with several species, including shrimp. Different investment models with different overview periods up to 20 years. This is not a gold rush - just a commitment to feed the world.
The Waterfruits aquaculture system works with a natural and purifying process, developed and patented by Krautwedel. The drainage water is used in the cycle and is pumped to the animals after purification and oxygenation.
The animals are free from stress and other treatments.
The frequently occurring problem that the use of a resource simultaneously involves the disproportionate consumption of this resource, the pollution of the environment and / or a disproportionate amount of electricity or material requirements is accepted.
Population development, climate change, the supply of drinking water and the modification of marine ecosystems are mandatory indicators for the development of resource-conserving self-sufficient systems.
Waterfruits plants and systems are based on the sustainable, agricultural management of water and soil resources.
The complete water purification in the system by the patented ecological filter process prevents a fresh water requirement, which is necessary with similar systems. The consistently best water quality and the equalization of germs mean that drug delivery is not required in the production of animal feed - But "clean" additives are useful in the nutrition plan to get maximum results.
The animals grow stress-free.
Heavy metals, unwanted hormones, antibiotics ... - Food hazardous substances are common in both wild catches and aquacultures, regardless of the different qualities resulting from fattening, stress and improper handling and the resulting viral and bacterial pathogens as well as invertebrate parasites.
Depending on the particular site, the possibilities for cooperation with regional enterprises, e.g. In the field of suppliers, controlled feed production, supplements for ready-to-serve meals, or waterfruits-driven farming. Advantage in the partner system is the possibility of full employment in the network, without seasonal work as well as guaranteed reductions at reasonable prices, but also compliance with the requirements, e. g. with regard to the biological and ecological cultivation of fodder plants.
