Water boarding on the modern fish farm
By David Owen
How do you know if your fish are inadvertently being throttled by rapidly deteriorating water quality?
Fish swim, feed, excrete and play… all in their watery home. On a modern fish farm, all these processes significantly impact upon tank water quality. The modern fish farm typically can inject sufficient oxygen to maintain a stable oxygen level in the fish tank. But what about all the other water parameters? Blue Unit water quality measurement on fish farms has revealed that many critical parameters DO NOT maintain a steady state during a busy production day. What does in-tank instability look like? How can in-tank stability be improved? What effect does in-tank stability have upon fish performance and welfare? Blue Unit addresses these questions using innovative technology and many years of experience.
