Oxygenation for Aquaculture
Fish welfare is a constant concern. Maintaining proper oxygen levels is important to the immune system of fish and leads to stable production and economic benefits for the farmer.
The right oxygen level for optimal fish growth depends on species, size, feeding rate, activity level and water temperature.
Oxygen transfer rate into water is greater with pure oxygen than with air, significantly reducing pumping energy and avoiding the risk of super saturation.
Increased saturation levels offer improved fish welfare and increased growth. In closed or recycled systems, increased saturation levels are essential for fish survival.
The use of pure oxygen is technically and economically superior to simple aeration - the advantages more than compensate for the extra cost.
The SOLVOX® range optimises dissolution of oxygen in water, distribution of oxygenated water to the fish, and allows dose adjustment for smooth and reliable operation. It’s suitable for all types of aquaculture facilities; whether fresh water or salt water plants, land-based or sea cages.
