The Heart of It All – an Extensive Recirculating Aquaculture System

The hatchery’s incubation and fry-rearing systems heat the culture water to accelerate production. Incubation systems incorporate sand filters and foam fractionation for removal of particulates; aeration for balancing of dissolved gases; and, UV sterilization for pathogen control. Water treatment systems recirculate up to 98 percent of the total flow of 1200 m3/hr.
