"FLUPSY" is an acronym for "FLoating UPweller SYstem." As its name implies, a FLUPSY is an upweller that is floating in a body of water.
The reason shellfish aquaculturists use welling is to provide an intensive, controlled nursery system that force-feeds nutrient-rich water to the infant shellfish. This allows them to grow more quickly, have a higher survival rate, and conditions them to be always in a "want to eat" mode. In general, enhancing the grow-out abilities of shellfish reduces the time needed by the animals to reach market size - and that is a benefit to the grower's business.
The technical details for the construction of a large commercial FLUPSY are available with us. If you are interested in using this system to increase the efficiency of your operation, contact us.
