Life Cycle Assesment

Following Rebecca Bainbridge’s award winning masters thesis, Aquaponics UK were commissioned by DEFRA & CEFAS to complete an LCA study explore the implications of growing fish here in the UK vs importing those growing in Asia.

The results of the study highlighted the potential of UK production, especially in light of rising fuel prices, and also high-lighted the valuable role that aquaponics can play through its value added outputs. The study above all highlighted how the source of energy (coal power stations vs renewables), massively impacted upon the global warming potential of the production.
