Aquaculture

With demand for fish increasing, natural fish stocks coming under immense pressure, the future for aquaculture is bright.

However the drive for greater quality, greater efficiency and cost control, plus ever tighter environmental restrictions means that aquaculture businesses must look for ways of increasing stock densities, controlling fish diseases, at the same time as reducing environmental  impact.

Aquionics UV systems can play a vital part in aquaculture installations, by destroying bacteria, viruses, protozoans, cysts,  spores, unwanted algae and other microorganisms. With systems ranging from capacities of under 1m3/hr to 2,000m3/hr, Aquionics UV can provide an effective barrier to unwanted organisms in aquaculture systems’ stock water.

Organisms responsible for fish diseases that are treatable using a Aquionics UV disinfection systems:

  • Viral haemorrhagic septicaemia (VHS)
  • Infectious Salmon Anaemia (ISA)
  • Saprolegenia (fungal disease)
  • Infectious pancreatic necrosis (IPN)
  • Coliform bacteria
  • Ichtyophthirius (white spot disease)
  • Faecal streptococci
