The Ins And Outs Of Aquaculture Tanks

Aquaculture entails rearing, breeding and harvesting aquatic species (both animals and plants) in controlled water environments such as oceans, lakes, rivers, ponds, and even on land in aquaculture tanks. The primary purposes of aquaculture include food production. Protection of endangered aquatic species, and fish cultures and habitat restoration, among others.

Aquaculture is practised by both small-scale farmers and multinational companies. Eating fish is an essential part of the cultural tradition of many people across the world. Also, fish provides a lot of health benefits due to its great nutritional profile.  It’s an excellent source of protein, vitamins, fatty acids, minerals and essential micronutrients.

Aquatic plants are also an essential resource for aquaculture since they provide nutrition, livelihood, and other fundamental industrial uses. Experts predict that the future growth of the fisheries sector will be primarily driven by aquaculture.

When it comes to aquaculture, we highly recommend using innovative aquaculture systems and sustainable production strategies to achieve more cost savings. Using the best quality aquaculture tanks provides many advantages for both small scale and large-scale fish production.

As opposed to having very many small aquaculture tanks, we recommend having fewer but larger tanks to save on both capital and labor costs. Also, capital costs of aquaculture tanks typically decrease with an increase in tanks size.

How does aquaculture work?

The methods used in aquaculture’s farm-to-table process can vary from species to species. As a general rule, the production chain starts in hatcheries and ends at the seafood counter (in your grocery store or local fish market). The specific stages used for your aquaculture production can vary depending on effects on the environment, and the desired quality and safety of the seafood you want to produce.

Hatching is one of the most essential stages of aquaculture. To promote aquaculture, Refined Polymers Sdn Bhd manufactures and supplies quality aquaculture tanks for breeding of fish, hatching of eggs and rearing of fish during the early life stages.

Why is aquaculture important?

Today, sustainable approaches to feeding the global population are more critical than ever before. Aquaculture provides an excellent alternatives source of seafood, instead of relying on the same species on their natural habits.

 It’s worth mentioning that population numbers of some species are endangered, especially due to overfishing and uncontrolled exploitation. The use of sustainable methods such as aquaculture is essential for the future of the fisheries sector.  

More profits

Besides protecting aquatic species, aquaculture uses fewer resources thus more profits for commercial fishers. With aquaculture, commercial farmers have more control regarding the supply of fish in the market. They can effectively create surplus stock or minimalize their production for maximum profits. Aquaculture is especially recommended for regions that primarily depend on imported seafood products.

Reduced environment impact

Based on many studies, aquaculture poses minimal risk to the environment. It’s a sustainable method that has helped satisfy the growing demand for seafood by supplementing wild stock.  That being said, farms must comply with relevant environmentally safe practices.

Water usage

A reliable supply of water, in terms of both quantity and quality, is essential to a successful aquaculture venture. The ideal quantity of water required to grow fish varies depending on fish species, size of the aquaculture system and level of project investment.

 Refined Polymers Sdn Bhd has a range of best quality aquaculture tanks to store harvested runoffs, stormwater and surface water.
