Technology

The fish at Astor Farms live in a controlled and isolated environment.

Every variable of their existence is controlled and monitored 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.
Astor Farms utilizes the latest technology available for recirculating aquaculture systems to ensure
the highest quality of fish.

Solids removal is handled by radial flow separators and drum screen filters while biological
filtration is handled by micro bead filters designed by North Carolina State University.
In fact, North Carolina State has played a key role consulting on the design of Astor Farms’
tilapia facility. NC State University has some of the top experts on aquaculture in the world and Astor Farms would not be what it is today
without the help of Dr. Tom Losordo and Mr. Dennis Delong.
