Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO) highlights role of biogas in fish farming

The FAO, an arm of the United Nations, has highlighted the role anaerobic digestion has to play in fish farming. The report, "A Guide to Recirculation Aquaculture", Page 73 of the guide in particular demonstrates how biogas can form part of an integrated, environmentally-sound, recirculation system. 

As demand for food grows, more efficient forms of food production are going to be considered, and intensive farming is likely to increase. Inputs can be managed more precisely in these closed systems, and where these are set up anaerobic digestion clearly has a role to play in managing the co-products of that system.
