market analysis. Other products available include business models for

e.g. 100K, 250K, 500K and 1000K lb per year farms, and single or multiyear
Proforma containing an income statement and balance sheet appropriate
for financial analysis. Analysis can also include a comparison of the
individual farming models to demonstrate the impact of such things as

on overall production costs.
RAS Engineering and Design
HTE will develop facility and system specifications as necessary to
construct and outfit an aquaculture facility using state of the art
Recirculating Aquaculture System
(RAS) technology. In conjunction with facility and system
specifications, HTE will develop specifications and bidding sheets for
equipment necessary to outfit the facility to include individual equipment
item specifications (e.g., pumps, biofilters, CO2 stripping, feeding
systems, ozone equipment, tank sizes and numbers, backup generator,
water testing equipment, monitoring system).
HTE will develop custom facility and system designs based on client
specifications for turn-key Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS).
Designs will include identification of staffing and support requirements
(laboratory and quality assurance requirements, feed storage and handling,
System and Facility Support
HTE will develop and provide training to client RAS operators at any
level of instruction needed. We will develop and provide training for
client staff members having no prior aquaculture experience, or provide
specialized training on any aspect of aquaculture operation desired.
For example, if a client is expanding an operation to include a RAS,
or is retrofitting an older, less efficient technology with the HTM
Biofilter TM , HTE will tailor a training program to that purpose.
HTE will develop a RAS facility data repository, including a library
of system and facility operating and service manuals, to include theory
of operation, troubleshooting and problem diagnosis, system servicing
and repair, and equipment and parts identification.
HTE will provide RAS project management and supervision, assuring that
the client's specifications and blueprints are implemented correctly,
and on schedule.
HTE will provide water quality and bio-security assessments of exisiting
operations, and recommend remedial or corrective actions as appropriate.
