We supplied a large NANO™ setup to the University of Coimbra in Portugal in 2019.  The system is used for sea urchin broodstock maturation and for integrated multitrophic aquaculture (IMTA) experiments using sea urchins and algae. The system was designed to include mechanical filtration, biological filtration, UV irradiation and temperature control.
