Aquaculture

In the past 50 years, the global demand for fish products has doubled. Today, more than 45 % of the world’s seafood comes not from wild catch but from either land-based or off- shore fish farms. Aquaculture is cultivating fresh-water or salt-water marine species in controlled environments. These farms face the challenges of maintaining optimal fish growing conditions: appropriate nutrition, prevention of diseases and maintaining a healthy water environment. The most important factor for achieving healthy fish is to have healthy water. Thus, controlling the concentration of oxygen dissolved in water is crucial in aquaculture. Generally, the following conclusion can be made: the closer the oxygen concentration is to air saturation, the better the growth and health conditions are.

Maintaining the right level of oxygen in the water will improve utilization of feed, reduce the growth period, reduce fish mortality and reduce the need for vaccination and antibiotics. As a consequence, the appropriate use of oxygen improves the economic situation of a fish farm significantly and provides additional production reliability.

INNOCHEM system is able to reduce oxygen consumption up to 65 %.

INNOCHEM has the right solution to meet these specific needs. The system was implemented more than 150 times worldwide.
