With water resources becoming increasingly scarcer and more polluted, delivering large quantities of high-quality seafood presents a challenge to many RAS facilities around the world.
Intake water has a crucial role in accommodating high biosecurity standards. It is absolutely essential for thriving aquaculture, as it can potentially contaminate the entire production if treated inadequately – from the hatchery to the rearing tanks.
The small eggs and fry are particularly vulnerable since they are defenseless in the early stages of their life. For RAS owners, even the slightest spread of disease can result in huge financial losses due to lost production, cleaning, and overall downtime until the next batch.
Utilizing UV technology is the most used disinfection method for intake water disinfection due to being a physical process rather than chemical. This means that no unfavored compounds are introduced to the water, avoiding any altering of the water quality which could potentially harm the species. Additionally, it has been proven to be the most environmentally friendly and cost-effective compared to the alternative disinfection methods. ULTRAAQUA UV offers the most advanced aquaculture intake water UV systems designed to reduce any risk of disease, and accommodate even the largest flow rates while providing the user with advanced monitoring capabilities needed in highly controlled environments.
Properly disinfected intake water is just as topical in the increasingly expanding shrimp farming industry, where superior anti-corrosive systems made from UV-stabilized polypropylene have been developed to withstand warm saline water.

“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 the 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 a higher percentage than before.”
