Pentair opens new Aquaculture Center of Excellence at the Pentair Aquatic Eco-Systems campus in Florida

APOPKA, FL – Mindful that fish farming has the potential to help meet an expanding population’s need for protein in a world with increasing water constraints, Pentair has recently announced the opening of its Pentair Aquatic Eco-Systems’ (PAES) World Aquaculture Technology Engineering & Research Center of Excellence here.

The center, which consists of 12,400 square feet of laboratories and fish culture systems, will be used for demonstration, research, and teaching activities.

Built to allow full connectivity to the Internet, customers and educational institutions will be able to monitor online the progress of fish culture trials, including water quality, feeding, feed conversion ratios, growth rates, energy consumption, and harvesting activities.

“We call this farming reimagined,” said Karl Frykman, president of Pentair’s Water Quality Systems.

“This center showcases our expertise and technologies in water reuse systems and solutions, including our energy efficient pumps and filtration systems.”

The center, Frykman said, also highlights the world-class scientific expertise of Pentair’s team of biologists, engineers, designers and technicians who specialize in sustaining aquatic life.
