What is Aquaculture?
Aquaculture involves the breeding, raising and harvesting of plants or animals in water, in the case of our tanks this tends to be fish. This can involve fish, shellfish and algae.
Why use Aquaculture?
In the UK, aquaculture tanks are predominantly used for the farming of salmon but can also be used for harvesting shellfish and algae.
Human demand for aquaculture has doubled in the last thirty years. The UK held 23.2% of the EU aquaculture fisheries and produced 211,568 tonnes of fish in 2015**. Aquaculture now accounts for more than half of the fish supply for human consumption and it has been the world’s fastest growing food producing sector.
Benefits of fish rearing in tanks?
Aquaculture tanks have many benefits some of those being that there is less risk of infection and disease than breeding in the ocean, as well as less risk of losing fish to predators such as birds.
Our galvanised steel fish rearing tanks are the perfect environment for aquaculture. The installation of the fish tank needs very limited materials and tools. This allows for a speedy installation of breeding tanks.
Tanks are simple to use, have very low maintenance cost, as well as a life expectancy of around 30 years and they can blend in well with their surroundings, making them perfect for you to start a fish farm now!
