Integrated Aqua Systems, Inc. (IAS) is proud to announce that it has won the contract for the new Integrated Climate Change Aquaculture System (ICCAS) at the University of British Columbia. This cutting-edge system will provide researchers with the tools they need to better understand the effects of climate change on aquatic life.
The ICCAS project aims to study the effects of climate change on commercial fish populations, with a particular focus on Pacific salmon. The ICCAS system will include 18 independent recirculating systems each designed to precisely control and test the effects of elevated CO2 levels to simulate ocean acidification conditions found in the natural environment. Additionally, the ICCAS systems will precisely control oxygen saturation at decreased levels for hypoxia experiments. Precision aquatic environmental control systems supplied by IAS will enable researchers to study the effects of various environmental stressors on fish physiology, health, and development.
At IAS, we are committed to providing our clients with high-quality equipment and creative solutions to meet their specific needs. We are excited to be a part of this groundbreaking project and to work along side the team at UBC to advance our understanding of the effects of climate change on aquatic life.
