Intensive use of extractive fishing is threatening important species and forces governments to impose temporary stoppages whilst the profitability of fishing fleets is decreasing and ship-owners are seeing their livelihoods threatened.
As a result of this and in order to satisfy the continually growing demand for fish to feed the world’s population, it has been necessary to breed different types of fish, crustaceans and molluscs in fish farms.
Fish larvae feed on multicellular microorganisms -Rotifera and Artemia-, which in turn require a balanced and natural feeding on microalgae. This is the only way to achieve healthy farmed fish which compare favourably with those found in the wild.

Durable, reliable & easy to maintain
It is no secret that DESMI pumps are reliable, easy to maintain and durable (robust). That is why our pumps are well-suited to the sometimes harsh environment they are exposed to.
Pumps from DESMI have been used for fish farming for more than 30 years and our knowledge of materials for both fresh and seawater means that we are able to deliver highly efficient pumps which can help to reduce production costs throughout the process regardless of whether they are on a flow-through or recirculation system.
We have pumps that can be used throughout the entire process, from ”Hatchery tanks” to ”Growout tanks”, for transport to and from the oxidation, to transport to the degassing plant. Whether you need small or large pumps, we have the solution.

Oxygen supply for fish hatchery and in particular:
- Broodstock units;
- Larval rearing units;
- Weaning units;
- Treatment for seawater wells;
- Biological filter of re-circulation systems;
- Ozone generation for water sterilization;
Special Know-How & Services from NOXERIOR
We at NOXERIOR are perfectly aware that oxygen is a variable cost for your hatchery operation. A reliable estimation of oxygen requirements and a correct dimensioning of an oxygen generation system from our OXYSWING® PSA oxygen generator product range will be determining for the economical benefits you expect from an on-site oxygen generation and supply system in your hatchery.
We will provide consultancy regarding the most efficient oxygen distribution as well as technology for oxygen transfer and regulation into water under consideration of all relevant parameters. By using our in-house developed software we can calculate both the required amount of oxygen to be produced and the resulting energy consumption. Together with you will find a compromise between the use of energy and the efficiency of oxygen transfer to optimise costs.

OxyGuard was founded as the first company in the world dedicated to providing metering, monitoring and control equipment to fish farms. The oxygen probes and multi-channel systems were revolutionary, and helped fish farming grow into the Aquaculture Industry that it is today.
Whether you need a hand-held DO meter or a system that can control your entire fish farm, OxyGuard equipment will help you run a profitable business. The return on investment time for OxyGuard equipment is short, even if you already monitor water quality the improved accuracy and stability of OxyGuard DO probes and control systems will give you considerable benefits.
OxyGuard gained a reputation for excellence that led to a demand for other products and from other markets, but the company`s main focus is still on aquaculture. Improvements and the introduction of new technology have taken place, but the company philosophy is still to provide the fish farmer with precisely the equipment that is needed.
Previously a simple oxygen measurement was enough - this is not the case today. The Aquaculture industry has grown; the demands to fish farming methods and the equipment used have grown with it. OxyGuard have designed the Commander system to meet these demands - and have made sure that Commander has the scope and flexibility to meet future demands.

At fish breeding humic acids are known for long as an integral part of natural waters for the bio-logical improvement of the water quality. For this purpose peat based products were often used to optimize the pH with the containing humic acids. Huminc acids based products on base of lignite like HuminFeed® in the field of aquacultures are an object for research for many years yet. Within the research acitivities regarding the use of HuminFeed in aquacultures and ornamental fish breeding the following positive effects amongst others could be observed by the Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries in Berlin:
