Research Trials

Riasearch performs aquaculture research trials for a wide range of aquatic species and experimental conditions in the fields of nutrition, health, growth performance, production systems, among others.

We are specialized in shrimp trials, particularly the Pacific white shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei), and also marine fish species such as gilthead seabream (Sparus aurata), European seabass (Dicentrarchus labrax) and Senegalese sole (Solea senegalensis).

Our research facility offers a vast number of replicable experimental units that provide reliable data. We offer a state-of-the-art recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS), providing flexibility in a wide range of environmental parameters such as salinity, temperature, photoperiod, among other water quality parameters.



Riasearch provides aquaculture consulting services for Aquaculture, RAS design and technology. Our professional advice and experience will ensure the optimal system design for your target species, either for hatcheries or grow-out systems. We can also help you to refine an already operational RAS through on-site problem assessment and the proposal of viable solutions.


One of our core expertise is effluent utilization for production of crops, such as halophytes (Salicornia ramosissima) and ragworms (Hedistes diversicolor) using multitrophic cultures. Through our experience we can advise on how to better utilise your fish farm effluent to produce a secondary crop.
