Water quality control is key to more sustainable fish farming. Hydrotech’s flexible filters release pressure on our natural resources and enable a safer food chain.

Efficient filtration solutions for sustainable fish farming

Hydrotech filters are highly flexible and can be fitted with screens from 10 – 2,000 micronmeter. As an example, they are successfully used for:

  • Recirculated system (RAS) or flow-through systems
  • Intake water
  • Effluent water
  • Filters for removing sea lice from water on well boats
  • Algae filtration
  • Aquaponics 
    (Aquaponics refers to a food production system that couples aquaculture (raising aquatic animals such as fish, crayfish, snails or prawns in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) whereby the nutrient-rich aquaculture water is fed to hydroponically grown plants, involving nitrifying bacteria for converting ammonia into nitrates.)

Using Hydrotech microscreens in a fish farm can remove up to:

  • 80% of total BOD
  • 85% of total phosphorus
  • 90% of the solids in the water

This releases environmental pressure from our natural resources, guarantees animal well-being, and contributes to the safety of our food chain.

Water quality control will become key to ensuring more sustainable fish farming while the world population increases.
