Title: A further development of tank for oyster production
Authors: Ren, Haoyuan
Abstract: In order to make food supply more sustainable, there is a need to redirect the protein intake from red meats to more sustainable sources like oysters or mussels since they are lower in the food chain. Thus, the growing of these kinds of organisms is an emerging market. In analyses of the lifecycle of these organisms it has been found that they are highly sensitive to predators in the early stages of their lives, the spawn state. They need to grow in a sheltered environment with nutrients in flowing water but no excessive motions. This put high requirements on the technical systems used to grow them. Additionally, since the fishing industry has tight margins, the cost of manufacturing and maintenance of the system could be a key factor. In the previous project, a tank for raising oyster seedlings was designed. In this project, the product development methodology is used to further develop the previous project to meet customer needs.
