Large Plastic Tanks for Fish
As the world population grows and as the cost of fish farming in natural habitats is increasing, so the need for aquaculture hatcheries and fish farming is booming. We are increasingly farming our fish in controlled environments, and the tank is at the centre of our aquaculture systems.
Large plastic tanks for fish farming are ideal. The nature of the polyesters used to mould the large fish tanks means they are corrosive-free, long-lasting and durable. They make it possible to rear the fish and shellfish for human consumption or ornamentation in a sustainable and cost-effective manner.
Large plastic tanks come in many shapes and sizes to suit every situation.
What to look for in the perfect tank for breeding tilapia and other fish
Here are some of the features you will be looking for when searching for the perfect tank:
- Ease to maintain and clean
- Non-corrosive material
- Smooth inner surfaces – easy to clean and unlikely to damage the fish
- Various sizes to suit
- Tough and long-lasting
- Ability to set up the necessary axillary equipment
Note that the most commercially important species of fish are migratory. They need to experience temperature and light cycles that mimic their natural environment to spawn successfully.
What to look for in the perfect tank for breeding oysters and shellfish
Shellfish, scallops and oysters need all of the features needed for breeding fish, with the addition of ultra-clean water, to make them fit for human consumption. Once the oysters have reached the larval stage they change from free-swimming larvae to static “spats”. They attach themselves to s substrate and can no longer swim away from unfavourable conditions.
Conical tanks and cylindrical tanks are particularly suited to larval hatchery work since the debris settles at the bottom and is easy to drain off, and also sieving the larvae is straightforward. As the water is changed, the oyster larva can be examined and graded to size. The tanks are cleaned, refilled and cultured algae added.
Large aquaculture tanks
Large aquaculture tanks come in many shapes and sizes. We have circular, rectangular, conical and bespoke tanks. There are tanks on frames for easy access and tanks firmly grounded.
Circular Water Tanks For Aquaculture
Enduramaxx manufacture circular tanks in many sizes and depths, open-top or closed. Our UV stabilised, tough durable polythene tanks are rotationally moulded to give a seamfree and smooth inner surface. These plastic tanks are food-grade and UV stabilised.
Flat-based tanks can be used as small quarantine and laboratory test tanks and for early rearing and the large plastic tanks are ideal as holding tanks. Our tanks range from 110 litres up to large tanks for fish that can hold up to 25,000 litres. There is a 5,000-litre low-profile tank that is 2,600 mm in diameter and only 1,000 mm in height. They even come in a variety of colours.
Conical Tanks For Aquaculture
Conicaltanks are ideal for larval shellfish hatcheries. We can supply conical tanks with or without frames with or without lids and in a range of sizes. The large 8000-litre open-top cone measures 2600 mm in diameter and 2551 mm in height when fitted in a frame. The tanks feature a 2” full drain outlet – but other sizes are available here.
Bespoke and Square Tanks For Aquaculture
These square tanks have large radius corners and you can adjust their working heights. They are available with or without feet, and there are a variety of outlet configurations and screen options, to suit your needs. More details here
