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.

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.
