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.

Measuring Oil and Moisture Content in Fish Feed using the MQC Benchtop NMR Analyser. The measurement of oil and moisture in fish feed is essential within fish farming, an important and growing industry providing high quality food for a growing global population. Fish feed is a key part of the ecology and economics of the industry making the control of the nutritional content and perceived quality of the product essential.

In the Fish feed process the product is usually conducted to the dryer through pneumatic transport, after which it falls out from the dryer into the cooler. Odour sources in this process are the flash- off of the extruder, transport air, dryer air and possibly also air from the cooler.
The amount of air per line that is emitted and should be deodorized depends amongst others of the type of dryers/coolers (vertical or horizontal), but also whether air is recycled from cooler to the dryer.
One compact Aerox-Injector can treat the total amount of air coming from a complete production line at all times. In many cases it is even possible to treat combined airflows of multiple production lines with one Aerox-Injector!
We are happy to advise you what (cost) technically will be the best solution. The Aerox-Injection technology prevents pollution of the Aerox-Injector by dust or greasy air in this process. This will guarantee the performance and will keep your neighbours really satisfied.

BIOAQUA is a microbiological product base on a mixture of selectively adapted bacteria, which accelerates the decomposition of organic matter, the degradation of wastes, consumes excessive nutrients and sediments at the bottom of lakes. BIOAQUA prevents and controls excess algae or an algae bloom at Municipal lakes or public fountains. BIOAQUA acts as a highly efficient probiotic that competes with a wide range of aquatic pathogenic and diseases. BIOAQUA prevents and diminishes the eutrophication effect by competing, for food, with algae that receive nutrition form fish waste, over feeding fish, decaying organic matter (leaves & plants), lawn fertilizers.

Economical fish and shrimp production requires maximum nutritional efficiency from feed. Enzymes, including phytase, xylanase, cellulase, protease, lipase, and amylase increase the availability of nutrients, increase absorption of nutrients during digestion, increase fish growth rates, and assist in the survival and thriving of fish in the larval stage. Also, the use of lower cost feedstuffs is made possible for aquaculture with the use of added enzymes. Nutrients that are not digestible using the fish’s normal digestive enzymes become digestible when appropriate enzymes are added to these less expensive feedstuffs.
