Abstract
We have investigated the technical and economic use of a closed containment sea pen nursery system for production of larger (circa 1 kg) fish for stocking in conventional cage systems with a view to reducing the duration of the marine on-growing phase in conventional open cages. This modified production strategy would reduce the time of exposure to sea lice, allow the capture of some of the solid waste from the culture operation and potentially allow more efficient use of ongrowing sites as the rate of throughput in those sites could be substantially increased
