AkvaFresh is providing a solution to the recurring disease problems in open net pens. A brackish water layer will reduce sea lice and AGD infection. For the fish farmer this mean reduced risk, better exploitation of the allowed biomass, and lower treatment costs. The brackish water layer is also improving fish welfare by reducing the number of treatments and need for handling.
AkvaFresh offers a preventative solution by making a layer of brackish water in top of the net pen by adding ion-modified water. Adaptation of feeding, light conditions, and net pen design will make the fish enter the brackish water zone regularly. The ion-modified water can be produced on location by an AkvaFresh filtration plant placed on a service barge. Alternatively, the water may be led by piping from a filtration plant on land.
