Aquaculture research within the laboratory at the micro-level or at bench scale is typically the precursor for justifying field level projects. But, the cost of field projects that actually apply

appropriate numbers of replicates is, more often than not, prohibitively expensive. We have developed a research platform wherein in-pond raceway system technology is modified to use multiple small-scale raceway units for increasing the number of replicates of treatments needed to bolster statistical strength in analysis of research results. Using this approach, the cost of an on-farm project is dramatically reduced. This presentation will illustrate ways and means this research platform is built and operates to encourage on-farm projects at a time they are badly needed but can seldom be afforded.
