In recent years aquaculture with its complex onshore and offshore fish farming systems has become the production of choice when it comes to meeting the rapidly rising global demand for fish. Yet the industry is facing a number of challenges in supplying a healthy aquatic environment for best results.
Key factors for success: controlling oxygen levels
Supplementary oxygenation is the key to enhancing a fish farm’s stocking density, to keeping it disease-free and the productivity and overall profitability high. A perfectly balanced oxygen saturation will …
Improve feed conversion ratio (FCR) for feed cost savings
A reduction in the FCR from 1.5 to 1.0 can lower production costs by up to 20%
Raise specific growth rate (SGR) for increased profitability
Increase fish growth rates even on higher stocking densities
Better fish healthy and reduced mortality
Tailored solutions for optimum oxygenation
Over the many years of our work we have developed a number of pioneering oxygenation technologies suiting all aquaculture concepts from flow-through and recirculation systems to sea cages, to all fresh and sea water plants and to all farmed fish species and the transportation of fish. Our tailored SOLVOX® oxygenation solutions and complementary services are geared towards:
- enhancing the animal welfare by optimising the oxygen concentration in water
- distributing the oxygenated water more effectively to the fish
- regulating oxygen dosage for smooth and reliable operation
Application expertise and world leading research activities
The close collaboration with our customers and an international network of fish-farming experts just like our belief in state-of-the-art research lays at the bottom of our solutions.
Thus the testing and demoes at facilities for fresh, sea and brackish water installations for our technologies are carried out at our Innovation Centre for Aquaculture, a pioneering R&D and testing unit located in Ålesund, Norway. Knowledge that does not only enhance our product line, but is profitable for our customers as well.
