Over the last two weeks contractors have installed the greenhouse walls. Feels great to see the (almost) full structure in its place at the farm.
Construction on the new greenhouse at the CASFS site has begun! This greenhouse will house the recirculating aquaculture systems we use to rear fish during growth and digestibility experiments, and (soon) integrated agriculture-aquaculture trials. The research performed in the lab on site will help us improve the sustainability of commercial aquaculture feeds and improve the overall benefits of agroecological aquaculture. Although ground was broken before we arrived, we’ve finally gotten a few pictures of the progress. The plumbing is buried, electrical station supports installed, and the foundation is poured. Plus, VIP parking. Check out the gallery below!
Starting this summer the whole Kapuscinski Sarker lab team will officially be at UCSC and we couldn’t be more excited to join this community!
