Aquaculture farmers and operators rely on the quality of their process water to successfully hatch eggs, rear juvenile fish, shellfish or crustaceans and optimise their growth. Poor inflow water quality, recirculation of tank water contaminated by fish diseases and discharging of pathogenic effluents can cause the failure of an aquaculture operation. Ultra-violet disinfection is a versatile and proven method to eradicate these risks in the aquaculture industry.
There are no aquaculture microorganisms known to be immune to UV Disinfection. Additionally, UV Disinfection is a chemical free process, there is no risk of overdosing and no formation of by-products, resulting in a process that is environmentally friendly and safe for fish. UV Disinfection systems are specified based on the UV dose required to control species specific pathogens. Depending on the bacteria, protozoa, fungi or virus that needs to be controlled, recommended UV dose rates in the aquaculture industry range between 30 mJ/cm2 to 250 + mJ/cm2.
UV-Guard have custom Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection and treatment solutions for the following fresh water, brackish water and sea water aquaculture applications:
Ultraviolet (UV) Disinfection has the following benefits:
No matter the species, or aquaculture application, UV-Guard will specify a UV disinfection system to achieve the required UV dose to control specific pathogens, helping to improve your aquaculture operation.
