Marine fish farmers have fully exploited nearshore farming locations. Therefore, the expansion of aquaculture activities in higher energy marine environments is a solution to keep up with the increasing demand for quality proteins for human consumption. Floating closed-containment aquaculture production Systems (FCCS) address many issues and challenges that the marine aquaculture industry is facing today with open-net aquaculture systems.

Recent developments show the application of FCCS at calm, low energy farming sites. This research aims to develop FCCS suitable for operating in more exposed, energetic nearshore locations; the primary focus is developing technology that overcomes issues with sloshing while creating an appropriate environment for growing fish.
