With water resources becoming increasingly scarcer and more polluted, delivering large quantities of high-quality seafood presents a challenge to many RAS farm owners around the world. To accommodate high biosecurity standards, intake water is one of the key steps of doing so. It is crucial for thriving aquaculture and when inadequately treated it can contaminate the entire produce – from hatchery to rearing tanks. The small eggs and fry are particularly vulnerable since they are defenseless in the early stages of their life. For the RAS owners, any spread of diseases usually means huge financial loss due to lost production, cleaning, and overall downtime until the next batch.
UV-C light is the most used disinfection method for intake water disinfection due to being a physical process rather than chemical. This way not introducing any unfavored compounds to the water or altering its qualities that could potentially harm them. It has also proven to be the most environmentally friendly and cost-effective compared to the other alternatives. ULTRAAQUA UV offers the most advanced aquaculture intake water UV systems designed to reduce any risk of disease, accommodate the largest of flows, and provide its user with advanced monitoring capabilities needed in highly controlled environments. With the increasingly expanding shrimp farming industry, superior anti-corrosion systems made from UV-stabilized polypropylene have been developed to withstand warm saline water.

ULTRABARRIER™ series is dedicated to providing secure intake water to RAS by creating a firewall with a high minimum UV dose. ULTRABARRIER™ UV systems are equipped with double UV intensity monitoring systems giving extra security and full control over your disinfection process. ULTRABARRIER™ series is a UV solution to protect any aquaculture species from various diseases during all stages of their life cycle, from hatcheries to grow-out facilities.
UV disinfection is the only disinfection method that efficiently inactivates pathogenic microorganisms in aquaculture. It also does this without affecting other water properties or creating dangerous by-products such as bromates. This makes ULTRAAQUA UV systems an especially ideal solution for hatcheries and grow-out applications.
Once the key water inlet point is secured, one can be sure that the diseases are not entering the controlled environment through intake water. This significantly reduces the stress on the species imposed by the dangerous pathogens and microorganisms. As the result, their energy is directed into growth and leads to higher food conversation ratios (FCR) allowing to produce an overall healthier and stronger fish.
The higher the quality of water, the less medication is required. Antibiotics are a common solution to control disease outbreaks in aquaculture farms. However, this method makes consumers uneasy since it makes anyone in the supply chain develop resilience and affects everyone’s health. Prevention is the best solution – by securing water with non-chemical UV disinfection, producers can significantly cut the use of antibiotics and produce overall healthier fish for the consumers.
One of the reasons we chose ULTRAAQUA UV is because we had a pleasant conversation at AquaNor in Trondheim. They are easy to reach in case of questions and the prices were competitive. The required level of biosecurity determines the need for a certain lamp output and ULTRAAQUA UV has done a great job in assisting with this by showing literature that explains the needed dosage to kill a certain disease vector.

“THE RESULT OF UV’S THAT WE BOUGHT FROM ULTRAAQUA IS GOOD. I’M SATISFIED WITH THE RESULT, IT CAN REDUCE TOTAL BACTERIA IN THE WATER AND IMPROVE HATCHING RATE TO HIGHER PERCENTAGE THAN BEFORE.”

Our ULTRAAQUA UV units are integral parts of our RAS systems, they are trouble-free and we have been impressed by their performance and durability in both freshwater and seawater. The UV sensor output is a great addition and helps with our routine water quality monitoring.
