Abstract This report describes concepts for aquaculture that can be considered for application at floating modules as being developed in the Space@Sea project. It provides an inventory of the culturing options of a range of organisms; i.e. fish, shellfish (mussels), seaweeds and microalgae. A general description is provided for state-of-the-art systems for culturing these organisms. In relation to the use of floating modules, several options are available for the positioning of culturing systems. They can be positioned on deck of the modules, placed under the models or in between them. Also “open” modules specifically designed for aquaculture could be considered. In addition, the modules could serve as an anchoring point for culture systems placed on the outside of modules. Finally, culture systems may be anchored independent, where modules are only used to deliver services, including work space. For each relevant combination of organism-culture system-position a factsheet is provided giving a short description, the main characteristics and requirements and a Strengths-Weaknesses-Opportunities-Threats (SWOT) analysis. Possible combinations are discussed and it is proposed to perform a multi-criteria analysis to select the most promising options for further elaboration with respect to the application at/with floating modules and in combination with other functions of floating islands, and combinations.
