Aquaculture Equipment

Aquaculture Equipment
Aquaculture has become one of the most significant and popular sources of fish breeding and fish farming that produces more than half of the total fish and seafood that goes for human consumption all around the world. This is an intricate process of fish farming that involves the use of special aquaculture equipment which makes the farming process easier and flawless. Some common aquaculture equipment and tools that are used on a large scale basis include:

Other than the aeration equipment, for fish farming air blowers, diffusers, compressors and other associated accessories find a continuous use in this work on a regular basis. In order to take care of the filter system and other electrical appliances used in the pond or fish tank, effective and earthen use of cables and wires along with low voltage mains are indispensable equipment.
Other than these, some equipment are also required for proper rearing of the fish and to ensure proper growth of the fry. These include the depuration equipment, more commonly known as protein skimmers. Feeders, feed timers, feed hoppers and controllers may also be used to maintain distinctive routine in the feeding process to condition the fish accordingly. In some farms, especially meant hatching systems and associated equipment is also used in the hatchery along with the hatchery lighting dimmers.
At a secondary level, there are a number of aquaculture equipment that contribute to the aquaculture process as well. To name a few would be the inlet screens, the inlet guards, transportation tanks for live fish, sand filters, low voltage transformers, valves and fittings, etc. 

An Introduction to Aquaculture
Aquaculture or aqua-farming refers to the process of farming of saltwater and freshwater organisms. This includes cultivation of mollusks, finfish, crustaceans and aquatic plants under controlled and proscribed conditions. Aquaculture, the process stands in complete contrast to the process of commercial fishing where all that happens is the wild fish that is harvested at large.
More than half the shellfish and normal fish that is consumed by humans is obtained through the process of commercial aquaculture. When aquaculture is carried out in marine conditions, the process is termed as mariculture. Some diverse variants within the wider corpus of aquaculture are:

  • Algaculture
  • Fish farming
  • Shrimp farming
  • Oyster farming
  • Growing of cultured pearls
  • Aquaponics (this is a combination of fish and plant farming done simultaneously)

Aquaculture and Crap/Koi Farming
Crap is one of the most dominant varieties of fish that is raised through the process of aquaculture. In 2004 as much as 18.30 million tons of carps and cyprinids were aqua-cultured around the world. Aquaculture happens to be one of the most important and significant economic activities carried out in China. From 1980 to 1997 the rate of aquaculture harvests rose by as much as 16.7 percent as reported by the Chinese Bureau of fisheries. This growth resulted in a straight shot from 1.9 millions to 23 million tons at one go.
Common methods of Aquaculture
There are two basic and commonly used methods of Aquaculture:

  • Mariculture: Mariculture is used to cultivate marine species straight in the salty sea water. Mariculture is generally carried out in protected coastal areas. Most marine fishes are farmed using this method of aquaculture. Other marine species that are grown this way include shrimps and oysters and also seawood.  
  • Integrated Aquaculture: The other popular method of aquaculture is the Integrated Multi Trophic Aquaculture or IMTA. This is an immensely growing method in which the by-products of one species in recycled and cultured in a way to make it into suitable input materials for another species.

The fed aquaculture of fish and shrimp are united by means of organic extractives like shellfish and inorganic extractives like seaweed in order to create objective system that would favor the over all sustenance of the environment and the bio-mitigation course.
