Fish is a very important component of a balanced diet and it is enjoyed all over the world. Global demand for fish products has doubled over the last 50 years and it is estimated that fish consumption will rise by nearly 40% to 180 million tonnes by the year 2030. In order to meet this increasing demand more and more fish have to be raised in fish farms.
Today, more than 45% of the world’s seafood comes from land- or offshore-based fish farms. These facilities face the challenge of maintaining optimum fish farming conditions: appropriate nutrition, prevention of diseases and maintaining a stable and healthy aquatic environment. The most important factor to ensure healthy fish is a constant supply of fresh, clean water. Controlling the oxygen concentration in the water is therefore, of vital importance to the fish farm.
Maintaining the right oxygen level in the water improves feed utilisation, reduces the growth period and fish mortality. Appropriate use of oxygen will significantly enhance the fish farm’s financial viability and provide additional production stability.
How can BOC help you?
At BOC, a member of The Linde Group, we work closely with the Aquaculture industry, offering customers a range of products and services that ensure the best possible fish farming environment for each plant.
With a dedicated team of both field and in-house specialists and our International Aquaculture and Water Treatment Innovation Centre in Ålesund Norway, we have been able to develop and deliver these diverse solutions.
At our Innovation Centre we use laboratory and demo models, to continuously develop and improve products and processes for both freshwater and saltwater plants, focusing in particular on:
Recirculation-based water systems
Water heating systems for easy control of test-water temperature
Aeration systems to reduce oxygen saturation
Transparent water pipes for in-depth process insights
Our SOLVOX® oxygenation solutions are known for their high quality and provide benefits such as energy efficiency, high oxygen utilisation, reliability and good tank hydraulics while effectively removing nitrogen and reducing the overall gas pressure - optimising the tank environment.
With over 500 installations worldwide, The Linde Group is the global market-leader in oxygenation.
