MMC has analyzed and participated in the design of systems for finfish and shellfish aquaculture. Our engineering staff has analyzed existing and new aquaculture concepts for mechanical, hydrodynamic and economic feasibility, and we have authored or co-authored a number of papers on the technology.
MMC has worked with aquaculture developers across the country, helping to develop and deploy innovative, cost effective systems and technology.
MMC has extensive experience using FEA, CFD and multibody simulation tools to model shellfish rafts. Using Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH), we can investigate hydrodynamic loads on individual components and nutrient flow through aquaculture systems.
