Innovasea launches a new aeration and oxygenation system for ocean-based fish farms

Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A.-based Innovasea has launched a new aeration and oxygenation system that equips ocean-based fish farms with better controls over water quality as well as improved stock protection from algae blooms.

The new system, which also works to maximize growth rates, is part of Innovasea’s complete aquaControl solution. According to the company, the aquaControl solution gives “farms the ability to easily monitor environmental conditions and make adjustments within individual pens or across the entire site.”

A salmon farm in Canada already has the aeration and oxygenation system in use, Innovasea said in a press release. Among the system’s features is a first-of-its-kind digital valve system, which is controlled remotely via computer or mobile device, offering seafood farmers “greater control over environmental conditions without having to be on-site to make adjustments.”

“This is an important breakthrough for fish farmers because it helps them instantly react to changing environmental conditions to keep their fish safe and healthy,” Innovasea Product Development Vice President Tim Stone said. “We’re giving them a whole new level of control 24/7, no matter where they are – whether it’s at the farm or half a world away.” 

The aquaControl solution in its entirety seeks to help seafood farmers combat deadly algae blooms, temperature fluctuations, jellyfish infestations, and low levels of dissolved oxygen.

“Our end-to-end aquaControl solution takes a lot of the guesswork out of fish farming and enables operators to quickly and easily make data-driven decisions to ensure fish have the healthiest environment possible to grow,” Stone said.
