Philip Nickerson is an aquaculture engineer who has found his passion in designing and supplying heating and cooling systems for land-based aquaculture systems.
He owns and operates two companies: Aqua Production Systems and Pronova Marine Products. The former specializes in design and supply of land-based aquaculture heating and cooling systems, including the design and manufacturing of chillers and heat pumps for use in marine aquaculture. The latter company is a 200-ton capacity marine land-based farm in Nova Scotia, leasing tank space and husbandry services to the aquaculture industry. The two companies keep him experienced in the industry from both the farmer and the service supplier side. He jumped at the chance to speak here on his favorite subject – energy recovery in RAS.
