Blue Planet Ecosystems Company Information
- Land Berlin
Blue Planet Ecosystems (BPE for short) is a venture-backed company based in Vienna, Austria developing automated and self-sustaining aquaculture systems (for more details: www.blueplanetecosystems.com). Our goal is to produce a system called LARA (Land-based Automated Recirculating Aquaculture) in which a natural ecosystem consisting of phytoplankton and zooplankton is used to feed fish and mitigate water quality. The phytoplankton grows using the sun and the recirculated nutrient-rich wastewater coming from the fish. After reaching the carrying capacity a portion of the algae is transported to the zooplankton for feed. The process then repeats for the zooplankton which is transferred to the fish to eat. The waste from the fish is then pumped back to the algae thus creating a closed-loop ecosystem.
