Aquaculture Ponds Applications

  • Premium

    Aeration and mixing technologies for aquaculture

    Maintain healthier ponds, increase stocking densities, and generate higher yield with optimum oxygen transfer. Maintaining the proper level of oxygen dispersion in your systems is critical to the success of your operation – and the life of your fish. Poor dissolved oxygen levels, fluctuating water temperatures, and stratification all can negatively affect fish health and pond production.

  • Geomembranes for Shrimp Farming Ponds

    Intensive commercial shrimp farming began in the late 1960s led in part by technological advances and growing market demand. Today, shrimp farming is so intensive (in some cases close to 300 000 shrimps per hectare) that it requires industrially prepared shrimp feeds, fertilizing the ponds to stimulate the growth of organisms, aeration to prevent oxygen depletion and regular tidal water exchange.  Solmax geomembranes have been used in some of the largest shrimp pond projects in the world. There are several key benefits of lining shrimp ponds with geomembranes. Durable and robust, the HDPE surface prevents weeds, grasses, mud and other obstructive contaminants from entering the pond.  The HDPE substrate is known to reduce the suitability of the environment for bacteria thereby reducing the need for antibiotics. Geomembranes can also protect the slopes and banks from erosion and allow for easy detection and rapid removal of sediment and waste products.

    Here are several factors to consider when deciding which type of geomembrane to use in a Shrimp Pond application:

    • Stress crack resistance
    • Tensile and elongation properties
    • Tear and puncture resistance
    • Duration of the project
    • U.V exposure

  • Geomembranes for Fish Pond Applications

    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
