Net Cleaning Systems

Optimum oxygen levels and faster growth

Marine fouling is driven by sunlight and high water temperatures. Therefore, the waterflow through the cages and oxygen level will be reduced. Strong algae growth causes the cage/net to become heavier, which causes stress and in the worst case scenario a breakdown of the cage construction. This in turn increases the risk of fish escape. The algea growth could also cause disease and stress symptoms in the biomass. With AKVA group´s net cleaning equipment the fish in the location will prosper in optimum growth conditions.
Effective net cleaning
Strong marine fouling on the net can stop the oxygen supply. Algea growth can increase bacterial loads and cause deseases and stress in the biomass.
Perfect water flow
It is proven that increased marine fouling leads to reduced water flow. As a result, the oxygen rich water will mostly flow around the cage.

Growth curve
Good water flow though the nets are crucial at high water temperatures. The growth curve is almost identical for most aquaculture species such as; trout, cod, halibut, sea bass and sea bream.
