UV Systems for Aquaculture

Water is the key to elevating your aquaculture harvests?

Disease concerns found in habitat water sources continue to increase, as consumer demand grows for hatchery products around the world.

Hatcheries and seafood rearing facilities continue to evaluate the improvement of their water quality, through the implementation of new and sophisticated water treatment systems.

Water scarcity is a major player in this arena and so ensuring you have the best quality filtration systems for the available water is of extreme importance.

Aqua Ultraviolet Systems work in:

  • Fish Hatcheries
  • Incubation, Rehabilitation Facilities
  • Depuration Facilities
  • Aquariums
  • Zoos

Aquaculture Resources

Aqua Ultraviolet has over four decades of experience in manufacturing UV Systems to provide custom solutions to a wide variety of applications.

Ultraviolet (UV) light is a form of light that is invisible to the human eye.  It occupies the portion of the electromagnetic spectrum between x-rays and visible light.  A unique characteristic of UV light is that a specific range of its wavelengths, those between 200 and 300 nanometers (billionths of a meter), are categorized as germicidal – meaning they are capable of inactivating microorganisms, such as bacteria, viruses, and protozoa.

Ultraviolet (UV) light disinfection systems play an important role in a complete water treatment process in aquaculture facilities. 

UV Applications in Aquaculture

  • Disinfection – the most common application of UV in water treatment. UV systems significantly reduce pathogen counts in incubation and rearing facilities and have proven to be the most cost-effective disinfection technology for the inactivation of many types of bacteria, viruses and parasites harmful to many species of fish.
  • Ozone Destruction – ozone is often used in a fish hatchery to enhance the quality of problematic water sources used for incubating and rearing fish. However, residual ozone in the water can be extremely toxic or fatal to the aquatic life being reared. UV light systems are applied to consume the residual ozone in the bulk water prior to contacting the fish.
