Feeding technology for modern aquaculture
Arvotec is targeting global markets with an adjustable multi-purpose feeding system for fish farming. The company has many years' experience in feeding automation and practical fish farming and for several years we have developed a computer-based control system for fish farming. It has resulted in our product which simultaneously controls feeding, takes the necessary measurements and warns of unexpected changes.
We have given top priority to the adaptability of the system which consists of a network of control units, PC connection, measurements, feeders, feeding robot, and a centralised pipe feeding system. We have established a marketing organisation to important aquaculture areas including Norway, Scotland, Chile and the Mediterranean countries and we are expanding this this network all the time.
Feeding system is based on biological and mathematical models of fish energy requirements. Each species of fish can be given its own individual model which is then programmed into the computer. As fish farming experience grows, programs can be altered to match improved knowledge of conditions. The idea is that the farmer can transfer the knowledge he has gained by experience into the computer. We have validated and tested our systems at our own fish farm Arvokala.
Product and activity range:
• multipurpose feeding system that can easily be adapted to different types of fish farms (feeding robot, pipe feeding, hopper feeders, automation)
• consulting and projects
• oxygenating device and systems
• feeders and feed transport systems
• measurement instruments
• control and measurement systems
• importing of fish farming equipment
Because of the combination between fish production and technology manufacturing we can test our systems in our own farm in real conditions and we can get the feed back immediately to the product development. Also we have lot of know-how to help our customers also in bigger projects to plan their systems to be economical and efficient.
