Looking to the Future with Indoor Fish Farms

GERMANY - Big Dutchman are to present a new innovation in indoor fish farming at this year's EuroTier.

The innovative Big Dutchman division has developed a new type of system where the tanks are no longer inserted in the floor in the traditional way, but are embedded in a bolted, self-supporting "steel corset". This means a great advantage in terms of profitability.

According to Big Dutchman, fish farmers will profit from the High-Rise-System BigPool3 in more than one way: the innovative high-rise tanks not only reduce the constructional complexity and costs for erecting an indoor fish farm.

Moreover, they also consume significantly less energy than conventional systems as nearly no pump usage is required, for example, for fish harvesting or the discharge of drain water.

Furthermore, there is almost no thermal loss as the pools are in contact with ambient air from all sides. This reduces the energy required for maintaining optimum tank temperatures.
