Expansion of ongoing project in Central America
APT-designed fish farm in one of the countries in Central America, is
expanding production capacity from
5,800 to 9,000 tons Tilapia per year. APT provides the engineering and
production concepts. APT designed the original facilities in 1996-7, based
on gravity water flow, through four production stages of 1,000 ton/year
each. The project has been already expanded twice, between 2000 and 2002.
The present expansion requires design and implementation of a different
production strategy, using earthen ponds, with production capacity of about
35-40 tons per hectare per year.
