Different from any other production method, this method combines finfish species, shellfish, and marine plants (seaweed and kelp) boosting the environmental and economic benefits of aquaculture. This farming method is similar to polyculture on terrestrial farms using co-cultivation of different species. The salmon effluent and food waste are able to be absorbed or extracted by mussels and the kelp is able to dissolve other waste products such as nitrogen and phosphorus.
