In either decorative fish ponds or fish farming ponds, HDPE geomembranes and Fish-Grade PVC are used to avoid soil contact and minimize water contamination. Geomembranes prevent both waste accumulation in the soil and leaching of harmful chemicals into the ponds such as ammonia, hydrogen sulphide, acidic constituents, iron and other potentially stressful compounds. This protection improves fish growth while reducing the risk of disease. HDPE geomembranes also reduce erosion, allow for easy removal of wastes within the ponds, provide a smooth harvesting surface, and offer long-term U.V protection in tropical installations. Solmax geomembranes have been used in a variety of fish ponds applications whether for decorative or farming purposes.
Here are several factors to consider when deciding which type of geomembrane to use in a fish pond application:
- Stress crack resistance
- Tensile and elongation properties
- Tear and puncture resistance
- Duration of the project
- UV exposure

MPC Containment’s Aquaculture/Hatchery Liners allow for a controlled environment to minimize disease. The liner must not emit any harmful chemicals and in many cases, it must confirm to FDA or other stringent requirements and regulations. The liner must have excellent puncture and tear resistance. The liner must be fabricated and installed so that it is watertight as preventing seepage can be a major cost savings. MPC recommends Reinforced Polypropylene or PetroGard™ VI for these applications as they meet the criteria listed above.

Chemigation is the process of injecting chemicals into an irrigation system, and only Mazzei makes this process inexpensive and easy to maintain. Using high-efficiency Venturi injectors, Mazzei chemigation delivers precise mixing and uniform distribution of material into the water stream. Mazzei chemical injectors have no moving parts, and typically require no supplemental pump system. They rely instead on a vacuum to transfer irrigation chemicals, providing additional safety. Mazzei patented designs are precisely engineered. Imitation products simply do not perform like a Mazzei chemical injector.

Pesticides were commonly used for the pest control in farms since they have high and rapid insecticidal effects and enable us to increase yields of crops. However, the pesticides cause some problems: soil and groundwater pollution and residual chemicals in crops harmful to consumers. Recently, wider implementation of ozone sterilization in agriculture seems to be one of the promising techniques to secure the safety of foods.
