We have been working on aquaculture projects around the world for nearly 20 years. Our extensive experience in growing fish and in aquaculture led us to understand the market’s needs, challenges, and potential.
During our long years in the field of aquaculture in Israel and around the world, we came to the conclusion that technology was the key to leveraging the potential growth of aquaculture production and identified what we term as a “technology gap”.
On the one hand, the extensive and intensive aquaculture methods which produce relatively low yields, use water and land resources inefficiently, and have had almost no technological innovation during the past decades. On the other hand, the RAS (Recirculating Aquaculture System) growing method which gives very high yields and uses small land and water resources due to very advanced, sophisticated but expensive technology.
For most of the aquaculture in the world which occurs in developing countries, the expensive RAS growing method is irrelevant.
The extensive and intensive aquaculture methods need new technological solutions to make the fish farmers more profitable and productive.
We sought a simple-to-operate, cost-effective technology, which would increase yields and save resources and expenses (water and land). Our challenge was to develop a system with high-end technological capabilities, yet accessible and viable to all fish farmers, even those with limited infrastructure and resources.
The BioFishency system makes use of multiple known water treatment methods combined together into one product: an All-in-One water treatment system.
BioFishency overcomes two key aquaculture challenges: limited water availability and buildup of toxic ammonia (excreted by the fish). The system biologically treats the water used to eliminate the ammonia buildup and oxygenates the water. This substantially cuts the amount of water needed. By enhancing water conditions, the system improves the overall ability of the fish to survive, grow, and reproduce, which significantly increases profitability and sustainability.
System Technical Specs:
BioFishency’s cost-effective, plug-and-play water treatment system for land-based aquaculture costs a fraction of high-end water treatment systems. It requires minimal infrastructure and technical expertise.
The BioFishency unit operates with all different aquaculture methods: extensive (land ponds), intensive (constructed ponds), and recirculated. BioFishency’s system enables fish growers to upgrade existing facilities while using installed infrastructure and working methods.
Our water treatment system is also available as part of tuenkey Mini RAS fish farms. The Mini RAS fish farms includes BioFishency water treatment system, fish tanks and all other equipment needed.
