Hidrostal’s range of Fish Friendly pumps are the product of over 50 years of Fish Friendly Pumping Heritage. Invented by Hidrostal’s founder Martin Stähle in 1958, the pumps were originally devised as a means of unloading trawlers in Peru without causing damage to the fish.
In 1979 the Aqua-Life Fish Pump was the first pump designed specifically for the movement of live aquatic species without external or internal damage to the species. Hydraulically driven and constructed of marine alloy aluminum, Aqua-Life Fish Pumps are very light weight making them easily moved and installed for any setup
The CanaVac Aqua was designed specifically as a live fish transfer pump, suitable for all aspects of live fish pumping. The Aqua can transfer all sizes from smolt to adult fish without any damage, scale loss or stress.
Revolutionary patented technology connects to a live-fish transfer pump to totally automate live-fish grading. Fish are gravity fed into V-shaped channel, smooth design allows smooth transfer of fish without flopping out of the channel.
The “Twin” tank version of the CanaVac Aqua features the added benefit of continuous pumping. This can be critical when fish are being transferred over long distances. The system fills one tank while the other empties ensuring constant flow through the suction and discharge hoses.
The CanaVac Micro was designed originally for small fish and low volume applications like fish hatcheries. Micro has become a very versatile compact system for both the aquaculture and commercial fishery.
As with its larger cousin the Aqua, the CanaVac Twin Micro’s key feature is continuous flow. The standard unit offers the ability to pump vertically 7 meters and virtually an unlimited horizontal distance. Double power pack units are available for high head installations.

The patented FishPac live air transport system was created as an alternative to outdated water filled plastic bags packed in Styrofoam boxes and air pump systems. These traditional method of aquatic transport is labour intensive, environmentally toxic and yields high mortality rates amongst the aquatic cargo.
