Spanish manufacturer launching new live feed system
Pontevedra, Spain-based aquaculture feeding systems manufacturer FishFarmFeeder is launching a new hatchery feeding system of live feed.
December 3, 2018 By Hatchery International Staff
The company, which focuses on inland fish farms announced it is introducing a central live feeding system – a pioneering technology to manage centrally and automatically live feed for fish larvae production at an industrial scale.
Controlled by a production management software and modulated according to environmental parameters in the culture cycle, the system provides a solution to automatically deliver with high precision microalgae and live preys to larval tanks in a complete integrated solution.
The system will be enabled to receive input from environmental control systems (dissolved oxygen, temperature, pH, turbidity or other) in order to modulate the feeding process.
It will also allow for a high precision feed dosing as opposed to the current artisanal and manual feeding processes and will be supported by the i-FFFsw central control software that will gather all production relevant data allowing for real-time full traceability, of feed and fish, and improved business decision making.
FishFarmFeeder aims to change the current feeding practice in hatcheries in finfish aquaculture, the company stated. It works to do this through process automation and information and communication technologies to increase feeding efficiency, contribute to improve animal welfare and ensure quality and safety of aquaculture products.
