Advantages of fish farming in steel water tanks

Using steel water tanks for fish farming offers several advantages. One of the main advantages of fish farming in steel water tanks is the controllability of the environment. We will take a closer look at this controllability in this blog.

Controlled environment

Fish farming in steel water tanks is often a preferred choice because breeding fish in tanks means working in a closed system. There is no connection to open water or sea. Because fish tanks are closed systems, there are many parameters that can be monitored and it provides a high level of control over water quality. Crucial obviously for a good production.

We will take you step by step through the benefits of fish farming in steel tanks, a closed system:

  • High control over parameters

The steel water tanks are part of a closed system, which means that there is control over all materials entering the water. Steel water tanks can be connected  to various systems such as filtration, aeration and monitoring systems. This enables control over parameters like water quality, oxygen levels, temperature and pH.

  • Water conservation

Steel water tanks also ensures that water is often reused. This recycling reduces the need for fresh water inputs and minimises water wastage, promoting sustainability in fish farming operations.

  • Nutrients optimisation

The nutrients present in the water are also often effectively recycled and reused. So with steel tanks for fish farming less nutrition gets wasted.

Good fish welfare and product quality

Poor water quality is the most common cause for diseases caused by the environment. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to maintain optimal water quality in the system at any time. Fortunately, in a closed system, water quality can be monitored and adjusted when needed. This way, optimal conditions for fish are created, resulting in good fish welfare and product quality.

Fish farming

Fish farming or pisciculture is the fastest growing form of food production in the world. It is one of the important components of aquaculture and it involves breeding of fish, mostly practiced for commercial purposes. Other forms of aquaculture can involve shellfish and algae. Fish farming is mainly done in pens out at sea but land based fish farms are getting more and more popular. As part of land based fish farms, steel water tanks are a good option for cultivation tanks.
