Type of rearing unit: MARINE AND BRACKISH WATER LABORATORY FOR BIOACCUMULATION STUDIES
         
Unit description:
  • 10 Krescel tanks system for rearing various species of fish larvae and adults:
    • This system is composed of 10 x 170 L oval fibreglass with fibreglass stands, piping and valves.
    • Tanks with a double drain faecal trap. This faecal trap design removes a minimum of 80% solids (faeces, uneaten feed);
    • Nytex mesh around stand pipes, surface spray and water injection at the bottom of the tanks; 0% recirculated water;
    • Astral photoperiod controller for fluorescent;
    • Electronic controller and monitoring system (connected by RF to a central computer): 2 Enviro-monitron® each with 5 DO probes, 1 temperature probes;
  • 4 Swedish tanks system: This system is composed of 4 x 350 L square fibreglass with fibreglass stands, piping and valves.
    • Tanks with a double drain faecal trap. This faecal trap design removes a minimum of 80% solids (faeces, uneaten feed);
    • 0% recirculated water;
    • Astral photoperiod controller for fluorescent;
    • Electronic controller and monitoring system (connected by RF to a central computer): 1 Enviro-monitron® with 4 DO probes, 1 temperature probe;
  • 2 Six-Pack units:
    • Six independent aquariums per unit, each filtered, cooled, and heated independently;
    • Fully insulated;
    • Water temperature ranges from 30 to 5°C ± 0.1°C (when room T° at 20°C)
    • Titanium-coated thermoelectric modules
    • Simulated dawn & dusk and astral photoperiod control.
