UMass Aquaculture in collaboration with Researchers from the Building Construction and Technology program have been exploring concepts in Building integrated aquaculture (BIAq). BIAq involves taking advantage of the interdependencies between small-scale indoor recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) and the built environment to maximize energy efficiency and optimize operations. In a BIAq approach, gained efficiencies have the potential to offset the energy intensity of recirculating aquaculture and ultimately make local-scale aquaculture more viable.

NRC597SA is a senior level online course offered online through the Sustainable Food and Farming program and the Continuing and Professional Education program at UMass. The course explores concepts in sustainable aquaculture such as species and system selection in a manner accepting the limitations placed on small-scale fish producers in Massachusetts and New England. In line with these limitations, the course focuses heavily on land-based recirculating aquaculture systems and their potential for use within the region's aquaculture industry.
