Custom Design Solutions For Aquatic Projects


As a Senior Design Engineer for McMillen, Founder and President Ed Aneshansley led this Partial Reuse Aquaculture System (PRAS) design project. The mission was to design and construct spring Chinook smolt production systems that would isolate the smolt from disease and high temperature in the surface water of Icicle Creek, produce smolt that were in better condition for release in the spring and ultimately result in higher rates of adult fish returning to spawn. Ed was involved in the design, installation supervision, commissioning and ongoing technical support for this project.

    • As a Senior Design Engineer for Aquatic Eco-Systems Ed Aneshansley transformed the East Farm Road Trout and Salmons Genetics Lab on the University of Rhode Island’s Kingston Campus. As part of an Energy Audit by Noresco LLC. the lab was identified as the single largest water consumer on the campus. By implementing RAS technology, Ed was able to reduce the water use by 90% and have a significant improvement in Campus resource allocation.
  • MIT-Zebrafish Lab (Biomedical Research: RAS)
    • Though work associated with Aquatic Habitats, Ed Aneshansley was the primary system integrator for the Zebrafish Genetic Research Center at MIT. The lab was designed in the basement of a newly constructed building in Downtown Boston, utilizing all union labor and required professional design and installation coordination. Duties included:
      • -Project Management
      • -Equipment Supply
      • -Installation oversight
      • -Commissioning and training
