Main activities:

Design and installation of freshwater & marine water recirculation systems for laboratories

Fields of expertise:

  • Microbiology (biofiltration and nitrification)
  • Freshwater and marine biofilter activation
  • Fish nutrition and physiology
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Removal of suspended solids
  • Chilling systems, heat exchangers
  • Gas control
  • Custom design of aquaculture research systems
  • Design of aquaculture with high level of water recirculation
  • Electronics

  • Wet lab design

Strong points and advantages
  • We guarantee high quality of water in our water recirculation systems
  • Our fish rearing tanks incorporate a Feacal Trap that removes at least 80% of solids in a concentrated form
  • Simulation of ammonia and CO2 production with oxygen consumption and CO2 degassing in al our closed systems
  • Proven biotechnology for coating biofilters with active nitrifying bacteria. Our biofilters are delivered pre-activated with freshwater or marine nitrifying bacteria.
  • AQUABIOTECH has grown 1 to 6 tons Atlantic salmon smolts for over 6 years in Pilot hatchery for constant evaluation and improvement of its rearing systems
  • AQUABIOTECH factory tests its systems for hydraulic stability and specifications before delivery
  • A team of professionals with long practical experience in aquaculture that offers excellent after-sale service
  • Industry experience with long-term holding of lobster
  • State-of-the-art electronic equipment for the environmental control and monitoring of aquatic and marine facilities.
