Oxygenation of the water is a safety measure that protects the fish farmer against oxygen deficiencies occurring at a time when oxygen consumption is at its peak, and fish growth at its optimum.
Intensive culture systems breed a high stocking density at low water consumption per kilogram of biomass. This cannot be accomplished without using oxygen. The oxygen content of the water is a vital factor affecting how much your facility can produce.
Ensuring adequate oxygen levels in the water at all times is an important safety factor which affects the growth, health, appetite and general well being of the fish. It also assists in reducing the effects of stress that water temperature can produce in fish.
All this allows you to smoothly increase stock density, giving an optimal feed conversion ratio and ensuring the highest possible survival levels under optimum breeding conditions.
BOC supplies oxygen and the most efficient oxygenation equipment, which is continuously improved and developed by working closely with our customers. But perhaps the most important know-how we offer is a thorough understanding of the interplay of all the elements in fish farming through our international network of fish farming experts.
