New concepts need time to mature. Fish farming involves risks, but offshore fish farming involves an entirely new set of risks. These news risks must be considered when taking a well-known operation into new and harsher environments.
The new concept requires discussion and analysis. The process entails creating a basic model to see if the concept can survive the global forces from waves, currents, and wind.
It all starts with a location, which sets the criteria for both the concept and construction. These criteria will largely be based upon the weather conditions, such as wave height, water depth, seafloor conditions, and sea currents.
