AKVA Subsea Feeder is an effective subsea feeding system that provides increased growth and improved fish welfare
AKVA Subsea Feeder is an underwater feeding system that feeds fish at a depth of approximately eight metres. The feed is transported to the pens through a regular air hose. Water is added and passed down through a main pipe. The water is added by using a pump that draws deep water of good hygiene, in order to ensure the required speed of the feed. The feed is then spread using a dispersion unit of 17 meters in circumference with 12 feeding units so that the feed is spread about the pens in a satisfactory manner. The feeding rate is up to 50 kg of feed per minute. Experience from using the system shows the need for bird netting is not required.
Increased growth and improved fish welfare!
The AKVA Subsea Feeder has been tested by the aquaculture company SinkabergHansen. Experience shows that the fish remain by the feeding point during daytime, resulting in good growth and fish welfare due to the reduced sea lice infestation.
The system is also tested at two different facilities by Centre of Aquaculture Competence (CAC) in combination with AKVA Aurora SubLED Combi underwater ligths with very good results.
The feed is spread using a dispersion unit of 17 meters in circumference with 12 feeding units.
