Alaska's aquaculture industry is small. It consists of around 82 authorized aquaculture facilities and another 24 are in the process of being authorized. The economic value of this sector is around 1.5 million dollars and is made up of production of oysters, seaweed and mussels in state waters, which is developed mainly in the southeastern and central-southern regions (Prince William Sound, the peninsula of Kenai and Kodiak). Fish aquaculture is not allowed in the state.

A team of scientists have designed an automatic pond aerator that's powered by photovoltaic panels - giving shrimp farmers in remote areas access to sustainable energy.
The traditional aerators used in shrimp farming require a substantial power source – without it, shrimp production isn’t as effective or efficient. To help address this issue, the Community Empowerment Real Work Lecture (KKN PM) team from the Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) created a photovoltaic-based aerator to strengthen the farmers’ production efficiency.
As aquaculture grows, producers and feed firms are constantly looking for sustainable ingredients.
In April this year, a new study concluded that krill meal is a beneficial functional ingredient in feed for whiteleg shrimp (Penaeus vannamei). Conducted by the Central Institute of Brackishwater Aquaculture (ICAR) in India and Norwegian krill supplier Aker BioMarine, an eight-week feeding trial using the krill meal product QRILL™ Aqua found that 4.6% of krill in whiteleg shrimp diets leads to higher body weight and greater survival.
