Bouchard speaks to Science about salmon aquaculture

Science Magazine interviewed Deborah Bouchard, associate Extension professor and aquatic animal health specialist at the University of Maine, about the advantages and disadvantages of using a sand filter in salmon aquaculture systems. “When operating properly, it’s great. … If sand gets out of your biofilter, then you are in big, big trouble with your pumps, which will break down immediately,” Bouchard said.
