In-Pond Raceway System Videos

See how U.S. soybean farmers are helping Chinese fish farmers to revolutionize aquaculture in China, the world’s largest fish farming country.

The U.S. soybean industry funded research to develop the In-Pond Raceway System (IPRS), which has been provided to China in a technology transfer. The IPRS has been proven to triple the yield of farmed fish in existing Chinese ponds while greatly reducing the environmental impact. Limited water resources can be conserved and recycled, with waste removed for use as biofuel and fertilizer. This system can grow healthy, high quality fish with increased food safety to meet the needs of a growing population.
