CMI Scallop HatcheryBahia Inglesa, Atacama Region, Chile
CMI was an advanced technology scallop farm that operated approximately 20 years before the property was redeveloped as a seafood processing facility. Working with project developers, Ed and Kathy Rhodes, Mr. Hundley was responsible for all aspects of aquacultural engineering and provided support during construction, startup and initial operations. Project included a large seawater intake, filtration, storage and delivery system. Hatchery processes included seawater heating for year-round production and mass algae production systems.
1000 MT Coho FarmBritish Columbia, Canada
Canadian Aquaculture Company – The current facility it is now operating as a salmon broodstock facility with the capacity of producing 10 million eyed eggs per year. The facility is also a demonstration hatchery for regional aquaculture students. The owner investment group has engaged John Holder through JLH Consulting Inc. to plan and design a fully integrated 1,000 metric ton per year Coho salmon recirculating aquaculture production facility. Starting every 13 weeks with certified disease-free eggs, the production plan goes from first feeding to 3 kg harvest size in 12 months.
Model Family Aquaponics FarmCairo, Egypt
The application of medium scale aquaponic systems could be a turning point in Egyptian agriculture. This technology will improve production of vegetables and provide large amounts of fish. The Model Family Aquaponics Farm provides food and income security while improving family cohesiveness and raising the status of the family in the community. As the lead system designer, John Holder worked with Morgan International Technologies to provide comprehensive planning, design and technical support for this user and fish friendly aquaponic system.
MIT Zebrafish LaboratoryCambridge, Massachusetts
The Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research brings together biologists and engineers to investigate cancer at the molecular level and to develop new methods, treatments and devices for the benefit of cancer patients. The zebrafish lab designed by Mr. Hundley focused on personnel safety, animal care, reliability, environmental control, and cost effectiveness. It included aquaria rack systems, life support systems, aquaria makeup water systems, low pressure air systems, and monitoring, control and alarm system.
Striped Bass & Oyster HatcheriesCambridge, Maryland
As Principal-in-Charge and Aquacultural Engineer, Mr. Hundley designed separate, large capacity marine hatcheries for striped bass and oysters. Systems incorporated recirculating water reuse technology and bio-secure facilities and effluent treatment systems for culturing non-native species. A second phase of the project added a wharf with a high capacity oyster cultch seeding and barge loading center as part of extensive efforts to build oyster reefs and re-establish oyster populations in the Chesapeake Bay.
Clam Hatchery & Wet Storage SystemCedar Key, Florida
Cedar Key Aqua Farms – HTH Principal Paul Hundley was Project Manager and Engineer responsible for design-build delivery of seawater well influent water treatment system comprised of up-flow degassing and flocculation tower, bio-clarifier, and water quality polishing system with chiller and UV disinfection unit. The wet storage system designed to remove grit and extend refrigerated shelf-life. HACCP, shellfish sanitation and water quality protocols were readily approved by the State of Florida.
Duke Marine LabDurham, North Carolina
Duke University – Marine Aquatic Animal Research Laboratory – HTH provided engineering and facilities integration services to Integrated Aqua Systems Inc. and Duke Facilities Management to design and install an aquatic animal lab in the Department of Biology. One recirculating system provides a tropical marine environment while a second provides a user selectable environment that ranges from tropical to cold seawater conditions. Key features include glass aquaria, moving bed biofiltration, inline heating and cooling systems, UV disinfection, RO-based water makeup systems, as well as instrumentation and controls.
Healthy Food HubEast Coast U.S.A.
HTH has teamed with a prestigious Social Enterprise Development Company to develop a unique, urban facility that combines aquaponics, food hub and community center concepts into a sustainable, for-profit, social enterprise. The vision is to develop a model enterprise that will provide healthy food, good jobs and an experience-based educational platform that focuses on modern methods for producing, marketing and delivering local, healthy, reasonably-priced fish and produce. Conceptual design and project planning documents developed by HTH are currently used for ongoing fundraising activities.
LEARN Marine Science High SchoolGroton, Connecticut
Mr. Hundley has been supporting this 60,000 square foot project since its inception in 2005. His design responsibility included seawater and freshwater delivery and treatment systems; aquaponic and hydroponic growout systems; modular aquaria research systems; flow-through, batch and recirculating aquaculture production systems; broodstock holding and hatchery systems for bivalves, finfish, and crustaceans; as well as related live food production systems for algae, artemia and rotifers.
Claude Peteet Mariculture CenterGulf Shores, Alabama
Mr. Hundley developed a comprehensive programming report, conceptual design and cost estimate for a new 22,300 SF marine aquaculture laboratory. The goal of this recently constructed project is to facilitate research of Alabama’s coastal environment through enhanced research infrastructure and upgraded research tools. Hundley served as both Project Manager and Aquacultural Project Engineer for this project. Prior to this project, Hundley provided design-supply services for a multispecies marine broodfish conditioning and spawning system at CPMC.
Caribbean Marine Research LabSt. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands
U.S. National Park Service, University of Virgin Islands and Joint Institute for Caribbean Marine Studies – HTH is working with Lord, Aeck & Sargent Architecture in Atlanta, Georgia to provide aquacultural and seawater systems engineering services for an advanced marine research and education center. By definition, this net-zero energy project is a model for sustainable marine laboratory and education center design, construction and operation that fully embraces the tenets of the U.S. Green Building Council and the Living Building Challenge. The center will assist the NPS and VI Government in managing and sustaining territorial and regional marine resources which includes addressing global warming and ocean acidification.
Chatahoochee National Fish HatcherySuches, Georgia
As Project Manager and Project Engineer, Mr. Hundley provided comprehensive design development and construction documents for replacement of deteriorated concrete raceways and related underground supply and discharge piping. Special attention was required to replace asbestos cement piping in way of raceway work. A phased construction approach was developed to allow continued seasonal and partial hatchery operations.
