MODULAR FLOATING DOCK SYSTEM for aquatic sports and aqua culture

Maritime Technic - Pontoon System25 years experience in "state of the art" flotation engineering worldwide, together with cutting edge technology and the most advanced production techniques are the base for the new, extremely versatile "Pontoon Building - Block System". By utilising the friction co-efficient achieved by independently controlled flooding of the modules we have refined this system to provide not only the most stable floating platform available, but also a high load capacity, which can also be combined with a fender-sidebar system.
The individual modules are easy to handle (weight: 6.2 kg) and have a very high load capacity of 360 kg/m2 (=75 lbs/sq ft). They are made of a high-quality synthetic, UV-stabilized and anti-static material (green or blue), which is extremely resistant to the elements. Individual blocks measure 50x50x50 cm (1.65x1.65x1.65 ft) and the standard freeboard is approximately 40 cm. Blocks are easily assembled (with an assembling wrench) by joining the connecting lugs with bolts that give a secure and stable connection.
These building blocks can be assembled to meet any desired layout or dimensions, and can be used to replace or extend existing pontoon systems. This seawater- and acid-resistant system requires no maintenance or cleaning and is extremely durable. It can be utilised throughout the year or the modules can be stacked and stored. Unlike closed floats, this system does not blow up in the sun and is resistant to attacks from Teredinidae.
Unlike conventional wooden floats, the pontoons are made of a skid-proof material, and will not rot or develop sharp edges, or expose rusty nails etc. The "Maritime Technic - Pontoon System" contributes to water purity and is aesthetically pleasing. It has lugs (ears) along the sides where different accessories can be fitted and anchoring systems attached.
Swimming ladders safety rails, anchor fastening and and boat -mooring-eyes are the main accessories, with options such as side screws and bars as well as fenders, ropes and anchors. If needed, access ramps and gangways can be produced to the customer’s design. For marinas electricity distributors (w/wo illumination) and water supply-systems are available.

SUBMERSIBLE WAVE PROOF OFFSHORE NET CAGES for fish farming

 Layout

This cages are developed for industrial farming of various fish species (i.e.: Sea bass, Sea bream, Grouper, Salmon, Trout, Sturgeon) all the year round at exposed open water areas such as seas and oceans. To prevent damage from storm impact and to provide optimum conditions for fish farming, the cage can be submerged.
Completed with a painted or galvanized framework with a net chamber enclosed and a feed bunker on it allowing automatic feed supply and farming process supervision. To place the cage vertically, it is equipped with a special system providing its surfacing, submerging and positioning at a depth of 4-40 meter. Horizontal positioning of the cage is provided by the system of anchorage including anchor ties and anchors. Lightness and tracery of the cage are in full accordance with the sea landscape.
The cage structure is produced to the "Rules for Building and Classing Underwater Vehicles, Systems, and Hyperbaric Facilities" and passes control assembling and testing at the manufacturing plant. It will have the certificate of the official "Maritime Register of Shipping". The steel work is marked and packed as packages or in boxes which can be transported in a standard 40-feet container.
The basic material of the (polygon) framework consists of rod welded tubular low carbon (grade A) steel elements, connected with each other by flange bolts. The three-dimensional framework forming a regular nonahedron in plan, with three slanting trusses, running from the vertical columns to the geometric centre, closing at the feeder casing. The upper contour is completed with service platforms, passage walkways (500 mm wide) with railings (1.000 mm high) and removable hand ropes, also to the feed bunker. The walkways and brackets are made of pipes with 120 mm in diameter. The vertical columns (720 mm in diameter, 2.250 mm long) house permanently buoyancy compartments, balancing tanks, and compensation tanks of residual buoyancy resulting from discharge of changing loads. Also sensors that measure depth of submergence, water temperature and underwater acoustic are housed there. The 5.980 mm long horizontal members of the bottom contour are made of pipes with 478 mm in diameter and house the main ballast tanks and compressed air cylinders, 6 of which are ballast compartments and 3 are compressed air cylinders. Three mooring walls with wooden guard rails are provided for service boat mooring. To provide for safety of work of the attending personnel, the cage is equipped with removable single row life-lines. The shape of the whole structure and all separate sections are adjusted so that the cage experiences minimum rolls and trims at waves and current. The experience of the underwater system operation has proved that the operation in the water column is the most effective structural measure to protects structures from corrosion. Hot galvanized coating provides the structure service life of more than 20 years. This coating is reliable, practically excluding restoration and repair.
The system of automatic underwater feed distribution is intended for storage and measured distribution of feed for an autonomous operation of 7-30 days and located at the geometric centre of the cage. The system consists of a water tight bunker of 3.000 litre (2 tons feed in average) of cylinder conical shape (1.412 mm in diameter and 2.890 mm in height) and an automatically feed distributor (with a microprocessor) with a volumetric type dosage of 5 litre each. Compressed air is supplied to the pneumatic device by pipelines from compressed air cylinders, which are replenished from a service boat, equipped with a compressor. To prevent water penetration into the feeder, its upper part is equipped with a water tight hatch with a rack-and-pinion lock. Inside the feeder the upper part houses solenoid valves, system controller and (24 Volt, 125 Ah) batteries. The system is made of corrosion proof steel (6-8 mm thickness) and non-ferrous metals.
To submerge and surface the cage it is equipped with ballast compartments. The main ballast tanks are filled by gravity via drain holes equipped with ventilating valves with a remote control pneumatic drive. The balancing tanks are filled via kingston valve. The water from ballast compartments is replaced by compressed air (5-10 kg/cm3), supplied from the service boat compressor (min. 150 l/min). Air to the actuators is supplied through the pipelines made of corrosion proof steel and rubberized hoses. The process of submerging and surfacing is supervised by the depth sensor, its display being located at the service boat or via water acoustic communication channel from the shore.
The signal buoy consists of cylinders of variable sections, providing a platform for deployment and protection of the control and monitoring complex of the cage. The size and weight characteristics are adjusted to provide survivability in the regime of extreme weather conditions. It can operate afloat at wave (force 8-9) and respective wind speed. It also can freeze in ice (up to 50 cm) to stay for winter. Flexible pipelines and electric cables coming from the signal buoy to the cage and supplying compresses air and providing power supply. Additionally the buoy includes the antenna for an underwater acoustic control and monitoring system with an operation range of 10 km. Safety is provided by flashing beacons and corner reflectors, also from the feed bunker.
To install the cage at the water area (in a depth of up to 50 m), it is equipped with a special system of anchorage, consisting of anchor ties (i.e. a chain with a variable running mass) and 3 anchors (weighing 3-10 t), providing reliable functioning of the system under weather conditions given. The anchors are not included in the delivery, but are made on site (by the customer according to the drawings given). The anchorage system is designed for each particular site depending on hydro-meteorological conditions and depth of an installation site.
The net chamber with a volume of 1.000 to 2.000 m3 is preferably built from our polymer covered polyester net (mesh size 20, 25 or 40 mm) but could be changed to a kapron or nylon net too. The net chamber is placed within the steel structure at special guy ropes, running up and down from the platform. The guy ropes are fastened to the feed bunker and the net chamber. To provide for harvesting of fish, the net chamber is equipped with a device, consisting of a rope system and portable hand operated winch, raising the bottom edge to the surface. To remove wastes from the net chamber it is equipped with a special tray device which is lifted to the surface by the help of winches.
It is possible to position the cage system in a depth range in the water column of 4-40 meter. Afloated the system withstands waves (with personnel to force 3) without personnel to force 6 and waves up to 6 meter. Submerged it is resistant to force 9 and respective wind speeds and waves up to 8-9 meter. The axial diameter is 20,12 meter and the light displacement is 16,2 tons. Total height (including 2.000 m3 net chamber) is 12,1 meter, the minimum draught (at launching) is 0,8 meter and the maximum draught (including 2.000 m3 net chamber) is 8,6 meter.


ILLUMINATED NET CAGES for the fingerling production with natural zooplankton

Illuminated submerged cagesystem20 years' experience in the field of global plankton research and fingerling production with natural plankton and years of tests under different environmental conditions in marine and fresh water, are the basis of the new "UWG- Solar cage system". The production method is based on plankton feeding in the natural environment like: lagoons, bays, fjords, lakes and large ponds, by means of attracting the organisms using a lamp located in the centre of fine meshed submerged nets. Mainly Copepods and Cladoceres - but also a variety of other zoo plankton are photo sensitive and steadily swarm into the cages towards the light source. The net cages 2x2x2 m (8 m3) are manufactured from highly resistant mono filament polyester fabric (with mesh sizes 0,3 to 1,8 mm), is fitted with a zipper for easy access and a conduit for the electric cable. The net cage is stretched onto a strong stainless steel or aluminium frame. An efficient solar generator is supplied for remote site operation. An electrical transformer can be supplied in order to reduce voltage to safer levels for use with water. Depending on the zoo plankton populations, the fish stocking density (from the fry stage to fingerling size of 5 cm length) can come to 5.000 Ind./m3 and survival rates of more than 90 % have been achieved with various marine and freshwater fish species.
Operation and maintenance is limited to: the functional control of the system, a periodic cleaning with a portable high pressure cleaner, in order to prevent clogging effects caused by detritus, algae and faeces, and the observations of the plankton development in the location. The system is environmentally safe since: no feeds or fertilizer are applied, the construction materials are inert, and the plankton consumption is minimal and does not affect the natural stocks.



UNDERWATER LIGHTS to increase growth and delay maturity

Underwater lightUnderwater lights are used sucessfully (24 h/day) to delay maturation and increase growth in several fish species (like: Salmon, Trout and Cod etc.). in both sea- and landbased farms. This special submersible waterproof (IP 68) lights are made according to IEC and CE standards and are DEMKO and NEMKO approved. The socket of the special lamps is base E40 and the glass lens has a thickness of 5 mm. They have been tested at independant laboratories and light distribution files are used for calculating distribution in cages and tanks. The light intensity is 70-90 lm/W, the light current is 80-90000 lm and the colour temperature 4000-5000 K. They have dimensions (Length x Diameter) of 565 x 130 mm, a weight of 12,5 kg and are delivered with 20-40 m fixed marine cable (3 x 2,5 mm²) and are available in two power ratings (400 or 1000 W, 3,2 or 5,5 A) for a voltage of 230 V/50 Hz.


NET CLEANING SYSTEM with high pressure

Dual head netwasher in useThis netcleaners maintain a flow of oxygenated water through the nets, that keeps them clean with minimal disturbance and no need to remove the fish from the pens. It's construction and design make the washers head working toward the net against its own high pressure water stream and can be used on all types of nets and cages. The netwasher loosen and pulverize, with its high pressure waterstream, algae growth, food remains and other fouling, which in turn will drift away by the current. The single head disk is easily used, the dual head disk is for faster cleaning.
The fuel driven pressure pump with high output drives the head of the netwasher disk or can be used for pressure washing. It can be operated by one man from the boat or walkway/collar or underwater by a diver.  Alternatively a hydraulic power pack for workboats is available, which is permanently installed with all the advantages of hydraulic drive, useful for pressure washing on boat and cages.

PRECISION CLOTHS for aquaculture and hydrobiology

Plankton nets in use Copepodes under 500 micrometer cloth

This fabric program includes precision sieves of different material strengths and offers a narrow mesh grading between 20-2000 micrometer and therefore fulfils all requirements of today's aquaculture and hydrological needs. Appropriate sieve fabrics are offered per running meter and as standard or customised products, such as filter-, dip-, hatching-, cage- and plancton-nets.
In Austria a catch of zooplancton for the production of fry and fingerlings is commonly practisized since more than 50 years. During the last years several important optimisations are archived allowing a better net construction and easy catching. With appropriate designed plancton nets, harvests of several tons per day can be achived. Thank's to this Austrian development of special sieve-net-systems, it is possible to grad the plancton in 3 different size classes during the catch. The result is the correct plancton size for all development stages from fish larvae to fry and fingerling. An expensive and complicated indoor-production of prey organisms (such as: Algae, Rotatoria, Artemia, Daphnia etc.) is not necessary.

ELECTRO MOTORS for boats and pontoons

Electro motors (shaft, screw and flange models)For boats, an electro motor is practicable for up to 9 m total hull lengths. Electric motors have, compared with petrol motors, different turning moments, which allow to use electric motors with relative low powers. Longtime experiments have proven, that the required power relation (electro to petrol motor) can be 1:2.0 to 2.5, if the pertol motor was not over motorisized for the boat and the use.
All models have a compensated row motor, which coiling compensation optimizes the energy usage and increase theoutput of the motor, specially at higher turns. The casings as well as all supports are made from marine aluminium (GalSi5Mg to DIN 1725, pp. 2), which is corrosions and seawater proof. All other materials incl. all screws are made from stainless steel. The ball bearings are made for long operation and live and the seals of the bearing are made form seal rings. All parts are covered by plastic or special paintings for additional protection. Motor and motor casings are also painted with antifouling. All parts are built with high precision and each motor will be tested to electric performance.

Recirculation Systems

The requirement for seafood continually rises worldwide, and product is continually becoming more scarce. Aquaculture is a young, innovative part of economy with high growth rates and secure prospects. The future of fish production requires water to be used as economical as possible, and environmentally safe removal of waste products with lowest possible energy consumption. Demands of environment legislation reduce possibilities of open water fish production more and more. Already existing fish farms are confronted with directions for purification of their waste waters.
This accelerates the development of intensive, water saving systems for fish production which do not depend upon natural environmental factors. Production in a closed water systems offers more a compact growing environment for fish, low shared personal costs and good profits.
In such systems the waste water, which is loaded with metabolic by-products, is recycled through biological and physical purification and more than 90 % re-used. Through improvement of the re-circulation and filter technique we are able to offer an very efficient, easy and cost effective system for fresh and seawater. Risk minimization, process control and fish health are factors considered in our designs and re-circulation systems are produced in module-construction. Each module is an autonomous working system and is therefore the water is not transferred between modules. Depending on system size and customer wishes our systems will be supplied with modern measuring, regulation and security technique and working accessory. Depending on the requirements (production capacity, conditions and species) we offer generally two systems:

RECIRCULATION SYSTEMS for nursing and holding

The modules for nursery and holding are available for a yearly production-capacity of 1-2 t (125-250 kg standing crop) and consists of 2 square and 1 filter tanks with the needed technique and equipment. The water from the fishpools are cleaned through a particle filter to remove suspended solids prior to bio-filtration. The bacterial settlement for nitrification will develop on the packages of the reactor, mud will be removed through the current. Our bio-reactors have the gigantic settlement-area of over 900 m2 per cubic meter filter material and therefore we need only very small filter units. Through the introduction of fine air bubbles through a special aeration- and lift construction our systems work without pumps and therefore require less energy thereby reducing costs. Through compact construction, our systems can be installed any time and anywhere without rebuilding or extension expense. Aquaponic kits or hydroponic stes are available optionally.

Recirculation System

RECIRCULATION SYSTEMS for the intensive production

The modules for production are available for a yearly production-capacity of 50 t/year (standing crop 10 t) onward and allow our customers to get familare with the technique and topic without high risks. The water from the fishpools are cleaned through a drum filter to remove suspended solids prior to bio-filtration, where the nitrification process and the aeration with oxygen takes place. From there the water is pumped to the fishtanks, wich could be adapted to customer wishes in form, size and number. The use of UV- or ozone is planned. This system is available for all fish species (also salmonids). Beside consulting and planning we offer also training and service as well as the seed (fingerlings) etc.

WATER DESINFECTION with UV-light

UV-system in stainless steel reactor  UV-system in concrete cannel

Ultraviolet light (UV) destroys microorganisms by changing their genetic information (DNA), but does not produce residual or hazardous by-products, nor does it affect the tast, odor or colour characteristics of the treated water. It is light with very high energy levels and wavelength of 200-400 nanometer (nm). The most effective ultraviolet light for desinfection is UV-C (200-280 nm), specially with a wavelength of 254 nm.
The heart of the UV systems are high-performance spectrotherm lamps (low pressure technology) which provide a stable UV output through a wider temperature range. This special spectrothermal lamps show higher degrees of effectiveness and stability than other conventional lamps. They also exhibit a high UV power output (up to three times more than competitive low pressure lamps) and long operating live (12,000 h), resulting in decreased overall costs. The efficient lamps have a high UV emission in the area of the effective wavelengths (254 nm), that makes it possible to destroy more than 99.99% of all pathogens in water. To further increase efficiency, reliability and service lifetime, electronic power supplies (ballasts) for the lamps where developed. In addition, the new electronic ballast replaces several components required in conventional systems, reducing overall electrical cabinet size and heat transfer requirements.
Electronic controllers containing smart chips are designed specifically for the lamps and increasing effectiveness. These can vary the supply of energy to the lamps as a function of water quality and flow rates. They ensure that optimal levels of ultraviolet rays are emitted in the effective wavelength range and at the same time, they ensure low energy consumption. Consequently the lamps have much longer life expectancy than conventional lamps. In addition, calibrated sensors, monitor and document all factors necessary for desinfection and provide superior wavelenght selectivity (>99% at 254 nm), minimal drift (± 2%) and long service life. Upon reaching a present limit, the UV systems automatically signal that cleaning is necessary. If required, additional functions, such as ultraviolet dose indicators, automatic cleaning and remote monitoring via telemetry and the internet, can be integrated.
By studying various reactor geometries with respect to the UV intensity distribution and hydraulic characteristics, specific reactors types where developed to provide effective desinfection while minimising overall power requirements. Our systems have a modular design, which enables us to draw up solutions that are specified to our clients' needs in all areas of ultraviolet desinfection for up to sereral m3/h. This systems are characterised by their high desinfection performance, combined with compact construction and low energy consumption.

Aeration Systems

INJECTION AERATORS for aeration, circulation, destratification and oxygenation

Injection Aerator Injection Aerator in use

This injectors are one of the best and most advanced aeration systems worldwide, and also suitable for large ponds. They work with an for endurance run produced, maintenance free, turnable, submerged (also seawater resistant), motor in different power sizes (1.1-1.5 kw (1.5-2.0 HP) 230 or 380 V/50 Hz). The rotating propeller (2800 r.p.m.) produces an adjustable current, through which air drawn from the surface and formed into fine evenly distributed bubbles.
The diffused air aerate from the bottom up and the circulation created from the fine bubbles displaces the surrounding water, thus breaking up stratified water areas. This constant surge forces the pond to turn over, bringing cooler bottom water to the surface, where it picks up additional oxygen from the atmosphere. Therefore the dissolved oxygen is always as high as possible. Through the eutrophication process (of faeces and feeds) there is usually oxygen deficit at depth, therefore this system works to an adjustable depth and introduces the oxygen where it is needed, not only on the surface. If submerged, pure oxygen instead of air can be introduced with exact dosage. Long contact time of the fine bubbles in the water, ensures also this system is very effective. Depending on power and depth, the air flow rate is up to 35 cubic meter/hour and the oxygen introduction up to 3 kg/h/kw. At an oxygen content of 6 mg O2/l at beginning, one 1.0 HP unit in use with air, introduce over 0.32 kg O2/h which is the oxygen demand for over 2600 kg (table sized 250 g) trouts at a water temperature of 10 °C, for approx. 1000 kg at 20 °C or up to 3000 kg of other species.
Depending on installation, depth and current, sediments can also be cleaned. If the aerator is positioned near the water surface it also acts as an ice clearing machine in winter. Strong circulation also eliminates pond stratification and organic matter deposition. Finally thanks to the floatation phenomenon (foaming), this aerators make it possible to remove excess algae proliferation, colloidal substances, mud and any other suspended particles and improve water quality. With this proven system, all variants of aeration, current creation and oxygenation are possible. Theese proven aerators are supplied complete with motor, supports, float kit and propeller protection fingers. They are lightweight compact systems ( 21 kg), and very easy to install.


INJECTORS without further energy consumption

Injector Injector in use

They are available with 2-6 paddle wheels, in different power ratings from 0,75 to 2,20 kw (for 220 or 380 Volt) and have a weight of 80-120 kg. The oxygen introduction is usually about 1.6 kg/kwh. Wheel and frame are made of steel, the paddles from special plastic material and the H-formed floats from thick UV- and ozone resistant plastic.


PADDLEWHEEL SYSTEMS for effective oxygen introduction

Aeration and/or oxygenation is specially of economic importance in intensive farms. At this completely new developed systems all possible failures and defects of other known products have been removed. The systems have been tested under hardest conditions and have a very high effeciency, with the same time low investment and operation costs. The oxygen introduction is usually about 1.6 kg/kwh. There are no bearings of the wheel (100-130 r.p.m) necessary and also no couplings and discs, this reduce friction lost and increase the effeciency and also reduce the possible parst which could become deffect with time. A very long self live and high efficieny is also guarandeed through the worm-gearing. The motor is specially sealed aginst moisture. Paddles, wheel and frame are made of stainless steel, the floats from thick UV- and ozone resistant material. The Paddlewheel Aerators are available in different power ratings (180, 250, 370, 550 and 750 Watt) and have dimensions of approx. 1.5 x 1.6 x 0.6 m (LxWxH) and a weight of 30-70 kg.

Paddlewheel Aerator with T-floatOxygen cover

To use this paddlewheel aerators also with pure oxygen instead of air, as accessoire a special oxygen cover is available. The special formed cover inside guarantees that no oxygen (feed up to 15 l/min) disperse or waste to the surface, after the water leaves the aerator. As there are no seals necessary at the bearing of the wheel, also this guarantees that there is no oxygen wasted and thus this makes the system very effective too. The efficiency is up to 90 % and the oxygen introduction up to 2-3 kg O2/h.


RUBBER DIFFUSER with stainless steel frame

Rubber Diffuser in stainless steel frameThis professionell, extremely durable and effective diffusers are suitable for the live fish transport and for emergency purposes with pure oxygen. The approx. 1000 pores/meter arranged in 6 rows, of the special oxygen hose open only if oxygen is supplied and close again if the supply stops. Thus, pore blockage is prevented and the diffuser is allways ready to operate. An uniform bubble size due to the streight hose mounting in a stainless steel frame are main features of this professionell diffusers. The sturdy hose connection is 6 mm as standard (and is also available in 9 mm if prefered).

The following sizes are available as standard:

Other diffuser sizes and forms on request. For the self production of diffusers we deliver also just the diffuser hose per meter (18-19 mm inside and 24-27 mm outside diameter) as well as end pieces with connector and the pressure hose per meter (6 mm diameter).


CERAMIC PLATE DIFFUSERS for micro gas bubbles

Micro Bubble Ceramic Oxygen Diffuser Micro Bubble Ceramik Oxygen Diffusser in use

This diffusers are robust engineered products with high specification and performance and perhaps are the most efficient diffusers available. The ceramic plate has been designed to be very strong, the thickness (approx. 12 mm) of the ceramic has been increased over the more conventional plates. The pore size is also only 0.3 microns which produces a cloud of tiny oxygen bubbles (10-200 microns) in the water. Depending on the gas (oxygen or ozone) and water chemistry, the diffused gas may pass directly into solution with no visible sign of bubbles. There is no better gas diffuser available.
The flow is optimally 3-4 l/min and maximally 6-8 l/min. The working gas pressure is 25 to 35 psi, do not exceed 50 psi as it may result in damage to the diffuser. The ultimate in flat plate ceramic gas diffuser. One diffuser will supply sufficient oxygen to supply 100 % of the oxygen demand of approximately 2000 kg of fish with an efficiency approaching 100 % transfer of oxygen into solution and a oxygen satturation in the water of over 120 %. In seawater applications it can actually be difficult to see the bubbles, since the gas goes almost directly into solution.
The ceramic flat plate diffusers has a weight of 3,55 kg, outside dimensions of 450 x 110 x 28 mm with a ceramic plate of 400 x 90 x 12 mm (360 cm2) which gives a very small bubble size and are used where a small high rate diffuser with a high oxygen transfer efficiency is required. The diffuser has 4 mounting holes where stoppers can be fitted and has a female BSP threaded inlet with 6 mm adapter to connect the pressure hose.


PROFESSIONAL CERAMIC DIFFUSERS for air

Cross-Diffuser (floating)The fine poored ceramic tubes allow to diffuse the air in fine bubbles. The diffusers should be installed in the same deepth, but as deep as possible below the water surface. The floating cross diffuser is placed on the water surface in the center of the tank or pond and fixed with a rope to the shore so that it can move a little and aerate a larger area.
The cross diffusers are available complete with 20 mm hose tail (other on request) and are delivered with or without float. The 1 m long feeeding tube is also available shorter. Each diffuser tube has a length of 18 cm and a diameter of 6 cm and can introduce approx. 1.5 to 2.0 m3 air/hour each (6-8 m3 per cross diffuser). They are also available as self sinking single tube diffusers with hose tail.


FLEXIBLE GAS DIFFUSERS with high performance

Flexible Gas DiffuserThis is among the most robust and versatile fine bubble diffusers commercially available. The diffuser has the capacity to pass large quantities of air, oxygen or carbon dioxide with low pressure drop and small bubble size (approx. 1-4 mm). Fine bubble diffusion is inherently more effective than coarse bubble diffusers in providing a greater mixing action and aeration efficiency. The diffusers are of a tubular semi-flexible construction (32 mm in diameter). An outer polyester sleeve encases a silica particle ballast and an inner nylon distributor. The internal ballast is not fused together, therefore precipitates such as iron and carbonates tend to crack off, and can be flushed out easily. The internal ballast (weight approx. 1.6 kg/m) means that the diffuser does not need to be anchored to the floor of the tank. The unique design of the diffusers makes them largley resistant to biological and chemical fouling. The diffuser resolves many of the problems associated with other diffusers and has proven itself with over 10 years of use in many industrial and wast water treatment applications and it is the leading air diffuser for aquaculture. This gas diffuser is a hybrid air diffuser with the benefits of both tubulare membrane and solid air diffusers, but with few of the disadvantages. Solid diffusers can breack or become blocked by biofouling, iron and carbonate precipitation. Membrane and other tubular difussers have to be secured to the tank bottom. The membranes (elastomers) can also suffer from fatigue, and as a consequence the performance can rapidly tail off over a few months.
The diffusers are sized (up to 3 m in length, and with extention parts also longer) according to the flow (m3/h) of air to be used. Length is approx. 33 cm per m3/h air or liter oxygen/min flow rate and pressure drop is less than 1 psi. All diffusers are supplied with either 3/8", or 1/2" hose tails in acetyl plastic. Brass or stainless steel fittings and non return valves are also available.


MEMBRANE COMPRESSORS for Direct Current

Membrane CompressorThis simpe membrane diaphragm compressors supply oil-free air and are perfectly suitable for live fish transports, where the required energy (12 V/DC standard, 24 V/DC on request) can be supplied by a battery i.e. from the truck. As accessoires 6 mm hoses and various diffusers are available.

REGENERATIVE BLOWERS for pressure or vacuum generation

Regenerative Sidechannel Blower (doubble stage)This reliable and favorable blowers summarise modern know-how of pressure and vakuum generation, based on longtime experiences. The motoris constructed for endurance run is available in various power sizes. Concerning the compact dimensions and the low sound this blowers are easy and everywhere to install. Lateral channel blowers work regeneratively. Casing and impeller with radial blades form a circular body. The medium (air) is accelerated by centrifugal force in the blade channels, stocked and compressed. This process continues permanently with continually increasing pressure rising until the medium leaves the casing through the outlet connection. Because of the special principle of construction and design, there is no contact between rotating parts.
Our unique submerged air blowers (on request) are installed directly in the water and allow therefore shorter pipe-lines, resulting in lower oppositions. This submerged blowers are nearly noth to hear and also save space. The waste heat from the submerged blowers can be used to heat the water in warmwater recirculation systems, which is an additional advance. The blowers can be installed single, paralell or for increasing the pressure, also in rows. At special request, all blowers can be produced for seawater use or other electric frequencies. As accessoire air filters, sound absorbers and security valves are available. The machines are delivered as mono stage (M) or doubble stage (D) blowers with single (S) or twin (T) impeller.

OXYGEN GENERATOR SYSTEMS for intesive aquaculture

Oxygen GeneratorIn recent years, fish farming has turned into high density farming practice and pure oxygen is essential in modern aquaculture. Sveral studies have shown adding dissolved oxygen into water on fish farms has a very positive effect on growth rates, feed conversion and mortality rates, all factors that will affect the profitability significantly. On-site oxygen generators allow an uninterrupted supply of gas with a high purity output (adjustable 85-95 %, outlet pressure 4 bar). This means that you can produce gas where and when you need it, and in the exact quantity and quality you need, to reach gas selfsufficientce and independence from external gas suppliers.  This oxygen generators are known as reliable, easy to use and low operational cost. They save energy and money as supply of oxygen cylinders or rent of liquid oxygen tanks becomes irrelevant. The average oxygen production cost are about 1,1 kwh per cubic meter of oxygen. An oxygen generator combined with cylinder gives the highest level of backup in comparison with cylinders it gives overall cost reduction up to 80 %. We use only high quality components and all systems are designed for 24 hours, 365 days a year’s operation. They are easy to operate and require minimum amount of maintenance and service.
This prooved generators are based on the well-known PSA (Pressure Swing Adsorption) technology, using two pressurized columns with molecular sieves to ensure continuous production. Dry compressed air is blown through a valve to the vessel where the pressure is built to reach 5 to 7 bar(g). Oxygen is tied to a molecular sieve during the building of pressure and the nitrogen is allowed to pass through to the accumulation tank. While pressure is built in vessel, the second remains without pressure. A part of the produced gas is used for regeneration of the molecular sieve, which, in the case of Nitrogen, is a Carbon Molecular Sieve (CMS). The entire PSA system can be subdivided into several components like: air compressor, air dryer, air tank, oxygen generator, oxygen tank and accessoire. The models are available with a capacity in the range from under 1 to over 400 m3/hour (at an oxygen purity of 90 %). Oxygen cylinder filling stations are available on request.

SATUROMETER to identifie gas super-satturation

SaturometerThis new handheld saturometer (Protection class IP65, with electric backlight display identifies gas super-saturation in water reliably to 250 hPa resp. mbar pressure difference (displayed also as % total gas satturation), with an accuracy of 1 hPa. It works with a usual 6 x 1.5 Lithiumcells, with integrated capacity monitoring on the meter. The maintainance free sensor is copleatly sealed (Protection class IP67, Signal outlet 0-5 V). As option also an oxygen sensor can be connected to the meter.
The gas bubble disease is very often present undetected and leads to significant damage in the fish stock. If fish are being exposed to oversaturation continuously, they will suffer from it no matter which gas contributed most to the supersaturation! In experiments it was proven, that a continuous charge with only low levels of supersaturation has a significant negative impact on the fish immune system. A fishstock infected with IPN (Infectious Pancreas Necrosis) produced losses of 10-15 % after 90 days whereas fish from the same stock epxosed to supersaturation showed a mortality rate of 65 %. The gas bubbles themselves cause a lot of direct damages like lesions and embolies. Those alone are lethal in some cases. But in every case they open the door for secondary infections which can not be repelled by a weakened immune system. Another typical sample is a trout breeder who reported fin rot and saprolegnia on the fish body. Measures showed a gas pressure of 45 hPa which equaled to 105 % gas saturation. It may not sound high but the pectoral fins were severely damaged by gas bubble lesions. The fin rot and fungus (Saprolegnia) were clearly produced by an undetected gas oversaturation.

We deliver also moisture meters.

OPTICAL DISSOLVED OXYGEN SENSOR to connect on systems or computers

Optical Oxygen SensorThis new development is the first optical oxygen sensor with SCS interface (Simulation Clark-Sensor), for a perfect integration into running systems. The ideal substitute for your existing oxygen sensors. Via the SCS interface downward compatible to classic oxygen sensors (galvanic isolation), works together with classic transmitters. Additionally, the sensor can be connected via the 4 to 20 mA current output or with a process control system (SPS). As acessoire, a PC-adapter (USB-RS485) is available, with which the sensor can be connected directly to a personal computer, and configures from there (Software for free), where just a net-device is needed and no external meter. The calibration is simple and only needed once as the calibration data can be stored in the sensor. The robust and simply exchangeable sensor cap has a warranty of 2 years. It guarantees stable values at once, little drift, quick reaction time, and all independent from incoming flow. The sensor has no sensitivity towards H2S or CO2, but an automatic temperature compensation and malfunction diagnosis. Measrement range 0-20 mg/l, 0-200 % sat., resolution (at 25 °C) +/- 1 %, limit 0.1 %, reaction time < 60 s, temperature range -5 to +50 °C. The sensor can be delivered with an IP68 termination plug or with a fixed cable in different lengths. For mounting in a probe holder the sensor can be delivered optionally with a 1" process connector. For fish farming there is a robust version with a biting-protection with nut inserts available for water depth up to 20 m. A display- and regulation system (for up to 8 sensors) is available as acessoire.


MODULAR MULTIPARAMETER measurement and control system

Modular Multiparameter Process ControlWhen it comes to automatically controlling and adjusting critical water parameters, it leaves nothing to be desired. Due to its flexible modular concept, the system is the perfect solution for most applications in aquatic environments. Apart from comprehensive timing functions, it provides measuring modules for the parameters of pH value, redox potential, temperature, conductivity, level (fill level), oxygen and air pressure. Up to 8 sensors can be linked to the system in any requested combination. This allows, for instance, simultaneous pH value-measurement and adjustment in eight different pools – which is so far unique. Connection facilities for up to eight measuring modules in any requested combination allows for connecting up to 16 switching outputs (4x4) for control and adjustment functions measured data storage for 2000 measuring chains battery backed computer interface for PC-data evaluation with the software, capable of being network-integrated by LAN adapter, flash memory technology for update-function, automatic sensor identification and sensor testing, day/night simulation, lunar phase simulation, high/low tide simulation, flow simulation, timer clock functions, time interval functions, night modus, acoustic, optical and external alarm, etc.
The system provides greatest accuracy, ease of use, and maximum reliability. The systems are available as measuring/regulation systems with a switch socket and mains adapter for permanent operation. Besides its accomplished design, its practical special functions are thoroughly convincing, too. It is this facility that gives you the overall picture of your past readings thus quickly revealing any trends. The systems can be extended, even at a later date, to form a measuring and regulation system designed for permanent operation, simply by connecting the optionally available power station. An integrated alarm function assures greater safety. You can select an upper as well as a lower alarm setting. If, for whatever reason, one of these alarm settings is reached, the Power Station switch socket will be turned off. At the same time the alarm status will be appear on the display. The result is a reliable and effective prevention of damage. Microprocessor-controlled, Alarm function, Large display panel, Manual / automatic storage of measurements (up to 470 readings), Automatic transition to energy-saving mode when being run on batteries, Battery check, Semi-automatic calibration with sensor test (for pH, redox, conductivity, oxygen), High-quality, low-maintenance sensors.
The software is the central and convenient solution for controlling, adjusting and analyzing all industrial measurement and control systems. At just one glance, the user can check out if everything is okay – and interfere if necessary. Internet connection allows for controlling and adjusting the system even from remote PCs. It allows for analyzing and controlling the data measured by up to 255 industrial systems in one central PC. Allows for configuring all system parameters from PC, allows for status e-mails and SMS alarms, data base and graphical presentation of measured data and measured value evaluation.


MULTICHANNEL PROCESSERS for control and management

Wireless Multichannel Process ControlThis is a very versatile instrument that can be used as a stand-alone wirless and solar powered multi channel controller for cages, ponds, tanks and raceways, etc. It also has a large liquid crystal display which shows oxygen and temperature values. If there are more than 1 monitor units and a base station receiver, then the system automatically configures as a network and sends the information by low powered wireless communication to the base station. The base station has 2 alarm outputs, so it is easy to connected it to a telephone dialer or a local alarm. The base station connects to a PC via a USB, so now you have all the information displayed on your PC and all the results can be data logged.  You can add up to 50 monitor units onto the one base unit, to make a 100 channel network with no wires and no installation costs.  This makes for a really low cost simple system and for the first time provides a package ideal for cages, ponds or for any installation that can not use wires. In the event that you get hit with lightening, then generally only one unit will be affected, and if it can not be repaired on-site then you simply send the faulty unit back and replace with a working unit. This means that you are in control of your own system and not dependent on service engineers.
The base station is designed to sit in an office or control room and is connected to a PC by means of a USB cable. The base station communicates with all the transmitters, collects the information and sends onto the PC to data log the information and view the data. The base station has two alarm/control relays so if any one or more of the probes detects a problem, the relays can be activated to trigger your alarm system. The PC does not need to be on for the system to control or alarm. The alarm condition and probe location will be displayed on the base station LCD. One Base station can support up to 50 oxygen transmitters and 100 oxygen and temperature probes.
The transmitter station is a solar powered wireless radio transmitter fitted with LCD display for two oxygen probes, two temperature sensors, two digital inputs and fitted with two relay control or alarm out-puts. The unit will transmit over a distance of at least 300 m. If longer distances are required a repeater may be fitted to take the distance up to 3 km or more. The transmitter is in a self contained IP65 enclosure with its own battery and solar cells. The battery alone will power the unit for 3-6 months, but with the solar cells it will not require a battery change for at least 5 years. A 230 VAC/12 VDC uninteruptable power supply, rated at 2 amps with a 5 amp internal back-up battery for the transmitter module which will the battery will keep running for around 30 days, is available as acessoire.
The robust and easy to use (60 mm large) oxygen probe is a self polarising membrane covered galvanic cell that generates an electrical signal proportional to the oxygen pressure it senses, no matter whether it is in water, air or another medium. It is connected using ordinary 2-core cable, which can have any length (up to 1000 m) and does not need an external supply because it makes its own electricity. Cleaning the membrane (with a cloth or tissue) is, apart from an occasional calibration, the only routine maintenance necessary.

Breeding Systems

HATCHING JARS made from plastic

Plastic Hatching JarUsed successfully for over 20 years by federal, state and professional hatcheries and fish producers here and abroad, this jar can be used for a wide variety of species like: Salmonids, Thymallids, Coregonids, Acipenserids, Percids, etc. Made of high impact, non-corrosive easy to clean plastic, this uniquely designed hatching system enables uniformely distributed water to rotate fish eggs ever so gently and evenly. It works very simply as water from the supplying hose is directed down to the open-ended feeder tube in the center of the jar. The tube (diameter 3 cm = 1.25 in.) easily accommodates the prefered water flow so that the eggs at the base are rotated uniformely and precisely. The jar has a height of 45.8 cm (18 in.) a diameter of 16 cm (6.25 in.) and a volume of 6.86 l (232 oz.). It weighs only 2.5 pounds and can be ordered complete or also without feeder tube and screen. A circular filter/mesh screen (as acessoire) prevents waste eggs from spilling out of the jar, while the large spout (length 7.5 cm = 3 in., width 5.3 cm = 2 in.) at the top lets hatched fish swimm out at just the right time. Now you can virtually duplicate nature's way of hatching eggs with this durable, seethrough incubator jar. So next time you want your eggs "over easy", make sure you are using this hatching jar.


INCUBATION JAR SYSTEMS with overflow

Weiss Jar SystemThis simple and cheap jar system is suitable for hatching of eggs of various fish species, like carp, pike, perch, catfish, burbot, sturgeon etc. It is made of stainless steel frame and saves space and water. Each "Weiss or Zougg" jar made of glass with a volume of about 8 liters and bottom sieve, has a its own inlet pipe with valve and a overfow with pipe, so that it can be supplied indvividually with water. After hatching the larvae usually leave the jars by themself with the water flow or are removed by the farmer from the jar. The system can be build with any number of jars (up to 10 pieces in single and up to 20 pieces in double row).


BREEDING JAR SYSTEM with top tank

Zougg Jar SystemThis well designed systems are made of stainless steel and are equiped with "zougg or weiss" glass jars wich can be removed and serviced seperatly. Through the inlet tank on top, all jars can be individually supplied with water. The tank and feets are soemwhat adjustable in height. The eggs of various fish species (Cyprinids, Esocids, Thymallids, Coregonids etc.) are incubated in the jars and rotated gently by the water flow. A breeding cone for salmonid eggs and an overflow sieve (1-2 mm holes) to avoid eggs or larvae being spilled out by water, is available as accessoire. The standard systems have dimensions (LxWxH) of 80-200x40x165 cm and are equipped with 3-7 glass jars each with a volume of 8 liters. Other sizes or jars are possible on request. Single jars with or without stand support are available too.
The system can be equiped with a heating/cooling system and in connection with an UV-sterilizer operated in recirculation.


VERTICAL INCUBATORS to save space

Vertical Incubator with 8 traysThis vertical incubators guarantee safe conditions for the professional breeding and hatching of salmonid eggs (like: salmon, trout, charr etc.) and can be combined and arranged in different ways, to utilise the availabe space as effectively as possible. The water (min. 6 l/min) from the inlet, flows through the trays on which the eggs stays, and leaves the water tray over the front during the side canals to the next tray, were it flows again through the egg tray and so on, so that all trays will be supplied with sufficient water. Without disturbing the other trays, each tray can be drawn out and controlled easily and provides perfect conditions from the fertilized egg to the swim-up stage. They are available with 4, 8 or 16 trays approx. 60 x 60 cm (for 50.000, 100.000 or 200.000 eggs respectively up to 1 liter eggs per tray) made from strong non toxic plastic material and includes the aluminum frames (approx. 44, 82 or 175 cm high) and all egg trays (approx. 50 x 40 x 4 cm) with PVC coated polyester screens. Optionally isolation panels (clear or black) for the front or back are available.


VERTICAL INCUBATORS to save water

Vertical Incubator with top tank and support frameThis vertical incubator allows optimal conditions for the incubation and hatching of salmonid eggs (like: trout, charr, grayling etc.) and save water. The water (only 1.8 l/min) from the top tank with float switch and filter tube flows by gravity trough the trays, from the central inlet funnel through the sive baskets where the eggs stay, and leaves the tray via the outlet holes all arround the sides, where if lows down the cone shaped tray to the next one a.s.o., so that all trays will be supplied with sufficient oxygen. Without disturbing the other trays, each tray can be drawn out and controlled easily and provides optimal conditions from the fertilized egg to the swim-up stage. The corpus made of black plastic has a removeable and roll-up front cover also made of plastic material, which reduces light within the incubator. The incubator is available with 10 trays and baskets (for 100.000 eggs respectively up to 1 liter eggs per tray) made from aluminium (approx. 40 cm diameter and 5 cm high). The whole incubator has dimensions (W x D x H) of 48 x 62 x 128 cm. A support frame (45 cm high) made of stainless steel is available as accessoire.
The system can optionally be equiped with a heating and/or cooling system or operated in recirculation.


BREEDING THROUGHS for salmonid eggs

The screen (1-2 mm holes) of the egg incubation baskets are fitting exactly. The water (min. 0.1 l/sec) from the front, flows through the baskets on which the eggs stays, and leaves the through at the back side, so that all baskets will be supplied with sufficient water. Without disturbing the other baskets, each basket can be controlled easily from the top. Optional an outlet screen is available. This throughs can also be used for startfeeding of the fry after the yolk sac has been absorbed.


BREEDING BOX for running waters

Erbrütungsbox (geöffnet)An experience of many years in egg incubation and fry rearing, as well as stocking experiments in various waters, where the base of this new and innovative invention for the hatching of salmonid eggs in natural running waters. The flood save and closeable box is made of stainless steel with dimensions of (LxWxH) 85 x 20 x 12 cm, weight approx. 8 kg). It is used for the professional and controlled incubation and hatching of salmonid eggs as well as for the breeding and rearing of fry for (re)-stocking purposes. The box is simply set into the water (front flap against the current and cover a little above the water line) and anchored by the eyes to the bottom ground. Depending on fish species and egg size, the box supports a save environment for up to 10.000 eggs and fry until exogenous feeding. The eggs lay in baskets, which can be fitted with special hatching substrate to reduce maintenance. Under „normal“ conditions, the maintenance is limited to the periodical controll (1 x per week) of the system, where results of 90-95 % are reached in average. When the fry reach the stage of exogenous feeding they can distribute themselve in the brook or river.


HATCHING SUBSTRATE for stronger fry

Hatching substrateMainly for salmons, but also for many other salmonids, this 2-layer hatching substrate (40x40 cm) have been used and proven well. The eggs are incubated on the hatching substrate as usualy practized. After hatching the larvae move trough the spaces and shelter in the substrate nipples of the soft rubber like plastic substrate. The hatching substrate imitates the gravel substrate naturaly occuring in the brooks or rivers and provides optimal developmental conditions for the fish larvae. The fry are therefore stronger, have less deformations and a lower mortality rate.


MANUAL SORTING DEVICE for salmonid eggs

Egg pickerFormerly, developed at the Austrian Institut of Fisheries Economy in Scharfling, this handheld egg-sucker has been rebuild, allowing to select dead Salmonid eggs now easily and fast.
The pistol-formed device has to be hold at the handle with one hand, with the other hand the sucktion ball has to be pressed until the unit overflows at the tube end. Now, each egg can be avised with the sucktion pipe and if the button at the handle is pressed, it will be sucked into the plexiglass collecting unit.
With some experience, it is possible to work with this device fast end exactly. Where no automatic sorting machine is available, it is the best professional device for sorting Salmonid eggs manually.


AUTOMATIC FISH EGG SORTER with fiber optics and infrared light

Egg SorterThis egg sorting machine uses the most current technology to sort 100,000 eggs per hour. It is available with both live and dead egg counter or also without counters. Using the patented standard disk, the egg sorter will sort salmonid eggs from 5,000-18,000 per kg (150 to 500 per ounce), or if equipped with the salmon disk, it will sort any size salmon egg. Best of all, you never have to change disks to handle different sizes of eggs. The patented technology uses fiber optics and modulated infrared light to scan the egg and assure the highest level of accuracy (approx. 98-99 %). It has been used all around the world and will accommodate any local voltage. In the interest of safety and reliability, the local voltage is reduced to 12 volts DC. It has dimensions (LxWxH) of approx. 78 x 35 x 27 cm (32 x 14 x 11"), a weight of 23.4 kg (52 lbs), and an egg tank capacity of 19 liters (5 gallons) and is made of clear and white acrylic plastic.
Eyed eggs are placed in the trough with water flowing through the bottom. Several kilogram of eggs may be loaded at one time. The water flushes the "eyed" eggs against the patented disk where they are captured in the tapered holes in the outside of the disk. Once the egg sorter is fitted with the disk matching the type of egg you are sorting (trout or salmon) it will sort any size egg inserted. The eggs in the disk then pass an electronic scanning device which, using modulated infrared light, detects dead eggs. All with 100 % ambient light immunity. Dead eggs are then ejected out one side of the sorter while the live eggs travel to the opposite side where a gentle flow of air ejects them into a curtain of water which carries them to a separate container - safe, sound and ready for further incubation. The counters then increment, providing accurate totals of both live and dead eggs sorted. Each time a dead egg is detected, a light comes on giving you visual assurance that everything is working correctly.

AUTOMATIC FEEDING DEVICE for frozen zooplankton

Planktonfeeder20 years world wide experience in the field of plankton research, catch and larval feeding are the basis of the new "Plankton feeder", which was developed with the Institute of Fish research.
This device is designed for the professional application of frozen zoo plankton as a larval diet in marine and fresh water hatcheries for the production of high quality fingerlings like: Coregonids, Chars, Grayling, Salmon, Sturgeon, Sea bass, Sea bream, Turbot, Grouper and other species. The technique is based on a timed "wash down" of feed layers from large frozen plankton crumbs (up to 20 kg) and homogeneous distribution of the thawed plankton rations to the larval tanks by a specially developed self cleaning distributor. "Wash down" of the food layers and thawing can be performed either through spraying or by flooding or by a combination of both facilities, the remaining plankton is frozen immediately. The feed particle size can be perfectly adjusted by a special sieving unit. In order to avoid membrane damage and leaching effects of the thawed plankton organisms, the feed is distributed to the (up to 32) larval tanks by gravity flow only. Automatic feeders for live zooplankton (Artemia), on request.

AUTOMATIC GRADERS with moving fingers

Grading machine

This graders are made of aluminium and stainless steel and are available for various fresh- and sea- water fishes from Salmoniformes and Cypriniformes to Perciformes etc. The grading technology is based on 3 V-shaped channel with moving plastic fingers below, which moves the fish until the channel is too wide for the fish thickness and the fish are released to the collecting tanks below, from where they are flushed with water to the outlets, and additionally by pipes back to the holding ponds. During the whole grading process the fish are keept wet by water. The machines are mounted on a trolley with 3 wheels. Equipend with 380 V/50 Hz motor (230 V on request).

ELECTRONIC COUNTERS for fry and fingerlings

Fry Counter Type MicroThis fry counters have been developed with particular emphasis on well-being of the fish. The counters operate according to the "free-swim" principle: the fry or fingerlings (0,2-70,0 g depending on species) are in their natural element all the time and swim through the counter unit by instinct. Thus the counting will in no way cause stress to the fish. The counters have patented nozzles that seperate the fish by means of water so that each of them passes the photoelectric cell - a simple and reliable way of counting the fry with 98-100 % accuracy. The counters are fitted with reliable electronic components with memory. The electronic cylinder operates on chargable batteries but may also be connected to 220 V/50 Hz. Sensor unit and electronic cylinder are both water-resistant. The counters are easy to use and to handle. No division according to size is required and only one person is required to operate or move the counter.
Each counter includes a stainless steel water pump (220-240 V/50 Hz, 940 Watt, 11 kg with a capacity of 12 m3/h), and frame to mount the counter on the edge of a tank or placing it in a tank or cage. As accessoire kits are available to count fry from 0,2-0,5 g and also flatfish.

FISH COUNTERS for graders or pipes

Fish CounterThis newly developed fish counter series made of aluminium and plastic was specially developed to count fast (about 4 t/h) and accurately (over 98 %) live fish like salmonids, cyprinids and percids (from 5-5000 g) after an automatic grader. The cunter is simply connected to the outlet tube of the grader or any other tube.. Provided with programmed intelligence, the fish counter performs various controls (autotest) and informs the user in case of faillure. The electronic display provides the following informations: number of fish counted, status and degree of sensivity selected. The two new sensors with transmitter and receiver modules are mounted into a slide and are provided with an electrical connector. The graphic display and the power supply cable are also equipped with an electrical connector (Input 90-220 VAC/15 VDC). The various connectors are connected in the junction box of the main module. All electronic parts are sealed, easily removable and replacable by the user. The counters are available for fresh- or seawater use and supplied with a set of seperators and two support legs. A reception tank/funnel with 160/200 mm diameter pipe connection is available as accessoire.

PIPELINE COUNTERS for much fish

Fish Scanner with control unitThis fish scanners are based on a patented counting principle which gives both high capacity and accuracy (98-100 %). The fish flows freely through a pipe and passes an advanced camera/measuring system (CCD Camera chip) which will register the size and speed of the passing fish. The resulting data is then transmitted to a control unit which may handle as many as 4 channels (e.g. during grading) simultaneously. It is not necessary to have any space between the fish passing simultaneously. The robust and reliable electronics of the system will always provide the total number of fish passing through the unit. The splashproof counters are easy to use and suitable for direct fish pump or grading machine feeding. Optionally an easy-to-use PC software which will in addition to presenting the accurate number, give you all the information you need from the counters. It gives you real time monitoring with key features like: number, weight (average/total/distribution), speed, efficiency, Reg. Unit status, lens check, systems log and printing the results.
The control unit (dimensions WxHxD 28x13x37 cm, weight 5 kg) is made from powder-painted marine aluminium case which is sturdy, splashproof and user-friendly. The power supply is 100-240 VAC 50/60 Hz (consumption 10-33 Watt), 12 or 24VDC (150 Watt power inverter available as accessoire). The input channels can power and control up to 4 CSE or 2 CSF registration units at the same time. It has fluorescent buttons and backlit display, and also connectors for auxillary equipment like PC, and PLC control etc. The adjustable carrying handle can also lift the front of the control unit (to approx. 10º, 30º and 45º) for easy operation and a better view. As options an external siren (115dB) and a PC monitoring system (requires a COM-cable) is available. The control unit can easily be connected to a PC to monitor and log the counting.
The CSE-units are used for "dry"-counting (pipe 0-25 % full of water through the unit) and suitable for many applications.
The CSF-units are used for wet-counting (pipe 100 % full of water through the unit) and suitable for special applications.
All registration units are delivered with 10 meter cable, other lengths available on request.

ELECTRIC FISHING DEVICES with direct- or impulse-current

Electrofishing battery devices (250-10.000 Watt) Electrofishing backcarry devices (1.300-3.000 Watt) Electrofishing stand devices (3.000-13.000 Watt)

This save and powerfull electric fishing devices are sucessfully in use on all continents since over 20 years. Through the various and sometimes problematic areas of use, a wide range of devices was developed which will match nearly any requirement.
All devices are build to EN 60335 and EN 55014-standards, IEC and VDE-regulations, and can be TÜV-tested if prefered. The electric building corresponds to security class II. Therefore all power delivering parts are doubble isolated and guarantee the best possible security for persons. A "Totmannswitch" (in the European Union required) guarantees for additional security, so that all outlets of the device are without electric current if dangerous situations arrise. The permanent excited generator and the high quality magnet materials guarantee a continous and reliable power. Each device will be tested mechanically and electrically completely and delivered with user manual.
Dirrect current creates usually a better anodic reaction as impuls current would doe. But at extreme conductivities or for electric barrieres with dirrect current soon the borders are reached. As result, powerfull combinated (Dirrect-/Impuls-Current) devices where created, where the impulse frequenz and volts can be adjusted (via motor turns or switch). The backcarry units are compact lightweight systems with high outgoing power. Impulse devices are a little larger and have a little more weight than dirrect current devices.
We deliver net-, battery- oder petrol-driven backcarry- or stand-devices with dirrect- and/or impulse current with an outgoing power of 250-11.000 Watt (5-160 kw/impuls at 25-100 Impulse/sec.), and a current of 300-960 Volt with a weight of 10-135 kg and for a conductivity of 50-10.000 µS.
As accessoires are available: 30-50 cm Ø Stainlessteel-Anodes with RGP-electro handles up to 6 m in length, Copper-Cathodes with cable and connector, Plastic cable drums for up to 200 m cable, hand- or foot-Totmannswitch, Electro-rubber outfit (tested to 1000 Volt) as well as tanks and lights.

AUXILIARY FISH GUTTING DEVICES with or without cleaner

Gutting device-stand set (with washing table and rinsing brush)This gutting devices are in use since more than 20 years and a valuable help for small and medium processing plants. They allow to gutt and clean fish (like trout) from 150-1000 g (optionally up to 3000 g) in one rational working process, without give the fish out of the hand. There is also no need for turning over the fish in your hand as all sequences of operation start from the vent. If the operator should slip in the direction of the blade while cutting, an injury can nearly be excluded.
With the adjustable and save gutting blade the ventral wall of the fish is cut starting from the abdomen. As hygiene is the most important factor when processing fish, injuries of the guts are also excluded. The suction head has two scrape edges at its lower rim. While passing through the fish, all remains (like kidney and blood) are removed. By pressing a button, an automatic knive comes down and cuts the gorge, which is than sucked and stored in a container. Optionally, after gutting the remaining blood is removed by the rotating (1500 RPM, 20 cm diameter) round washing brush. The rational working sequences enables one person to process 300-400 fish per hour.
The new reworked and improved version (wall- and stand models) have a gutting head which can be removed without tools and is dismantled in seconds, which allows good cleaning and disinfection. The  removable suction head fitts to usual 120 l waste containers, which allows easy and fast replacing and deposition. Theese stainless steel gutting devices are delivered complete as table, wall or stand units with or without compressor and vacuumcleaner and with or without round rinsing brush.


AUTOMATIC GUTTING MACHINES with fish size adjustment

Gutting machine 1700This compact and robust fish processing machine (for trout and bass) is made from stainless steel and plastic material. A main point at development was the removement of complicated and failing technique. The complete machine operates without hydro pneumatic or electronic elements and is driven by hydraulic pumps, which are integrated in the frame. The machine is (except a mothly oil control at a viewing glas, and the exchange of knives and brushes) nearly maintainance free. Complicated and expensive engagements are not necessary and the function via a push button allows a rentable working. Additional misstakes are impossible as wrong size selection can be avoided with the automatic niveau-regulation. The running speed of the transport chain is as low as possible, to allow to feed the machine with the fish just by one hand. A control line at the outlet side allows an optic control of the processed result, without the need to take the fish in the hand. Bad results (usually approx. 5 %) can be removed here. As the machine works without cross-cutt between gillcovers and pectoral fins, there is no additional waste of fish weight.

MANUAL SCALING DEVICE for all fishes

Manual scaling deviceThis fish scaling device is well protected from spray water, safe in operation and securely insulated, tested to 4000 V. The 230 V/50 Hz ICE standard 0,1 kw motor can be used continuously. The machine LxWxH of 23 x 24 x 19 cm with a weight of 9 kg, can be connected to a grounded or non-grounded wall socket. The cover of the laminated, flexible axle (160 cm long) consists of two layers of steel, one layer of insulating compound and one layer of plastic. The ball bearings in the top, with which the fish is scaled, are waterproof and all outside parts are rustproof. The device is supplied completely with handle, feets, 160 cm cable and plug.
As accessoire a 6 mm strong plexiglas cover (LxWxH: 84x50x29 cm) is available, under which the fish can be scaled to avoid spraying of scales during scaling.


AUTOMATIC SCALING MACHINES for many fishes

Automatic scaling machineThe robust, solidly constructed machines with belt drive offer perfect scaling technology, with their design (body in stainless steel, automatic time selector and control valve for reduced water consumption) and complete operational safety (auto-stop control, motor protection, restart protection).
Scaling takes place at the bottom and sides of the machine and offers the advantages of short (approx. 1-5 minutes per scaling cycle), low-noise scaling cycles and reduced water consumption. The water used in the scaling process is accumulated, so that the fish are thoroughly washed and a soft cushion of water is formed. This provides a flexible support and ensures that the scaling action is very gentle (fishes are not exposed to heavy bumps or impacts). The auto-stop control automatically stops the machine when the loading lid, top lid or release flap is opened. Gentle release is ensured because the machine restarts slowly and the start button must be pressed and held down, which is an added safety feature. An automatic shut down with manual restart guards against automatic start-up after a power failure. The scaling machines are supplied either with a karborundum drum for soft fisch or small scales and with a round-hole drum for clams and hard fish or large scales. The machine is also available with a dirty water drain on the left-hand side (standard at the right side).

FILETING MACHINE for some fishes

Fileting machineThis compact machine allow to fillet all fish with up to a height of 110 mm and a weight of 100-1000 g fast and exact, without gutting the fish. The machine is made of stainless steel and easily cleaned with water. A hight output (approx. 100-200 kg/h) and savety measurements allow a fast working. The compact design (LxWxH: 118x56x127 cm) and the low weight (approx. 88 kg) allow to use it on nearly any place.
With the rotating round-knife, first the head is cut off. Following, the fish is put in the machine head-cut first and belly-up. The fish is now forwarded by special grip belts to the round-knifes and 2 fillets are cut. The cut is adjustable, thus allowing a low waste of meat (Filet approx. 40-50 %). The belly bones have to cut of manually. The skinn can also be removed manually or by skinning machines. A continous cleaning is doen by water spray nozzles. As accessoire an (20-40 degree) adjustable forwarding belt (30 cm/s, wide 35 cm, lenght 140 cm) is available.


FILLETING MACHINE for much fishes

Filleting machineThe transformation of fish into fillets offer an interesting value added profit margin and is directly depending with the filleting costs. This new generation of filleting machines now comes in different sizes, with dimensions suited to various fish sizes and species (Salmon, Trout, Charr, Whitefish, Perch, Pikeperch, Bass, Bream, Mackerel, Bonito, Tuna, Pollack etc.) permitting an efficient filleting of fish with minimum loss of product and high yield production of 50-80 % (Salmonids) of splitted fillets. The productivity depends on the operator skill and process chain but is about 10-30 fish/min (approx. 1-3 t/h depending on fish size). The yield is directly depending on the state of the freshness and consistency of the fish, its fat content and maturity, as well as the cut of the head (I-, C- or V-cut). The simple mechanic solutions based on rigorous geometric principles in combination with a sensitive system to the thickness of each fillet, allow the machine to process fishes of various sizes (from 0.1 to 6.0 kg) without setting changes. The type number means the maximum fish height between anus and dorsum in mm, which the machine can handle. The smart design and sturdy construction (made in stainless steel) insure a long life to meet high conditions and norms of hygiene. All machines work with 2 or 4 blades (and 1 or 2 electric 400 Volt/50 Hz motors), are efficient and easy to clean and maintenance. Each machine has 2 wheels for easy movement. The standard height of the fish inlet is 80 cm and the fillet outlet 77 cm abouve the ground (other dimensions are possible on request). The deheaded and guttet fishes are loaded by hand into the machine. A 10-12 cm high transport belt carefully transfers (approx. 20 m/s) the fish to the round blades knifes which run not parallel but axial. The blades cut the fillets and separate the waste bones, thus saving over 50-75 % of the production time. The filleting machines are available with 2 or 4 blades either for the production of fillets with belly bones (ribs) or for the production of fillets without belly bones (ribs). The water requirement during filleting is about 300-500 l/h. A sharpening tool to use directly on the machine is available as accessory.

The following 2 blade types are available as standard:

BONE CUTTERS for fish filets

Y-bone cutterWith this compact manual devices made from stainless steel, you can cut (Cutting wide 9, 15 or 30 cm) fast and easy the Y-bones in fillets from bony rich fishes (like Cyprinids, etc.). With this cutting in small distances (every 3-4 mm), the numberous Y-bones are chopped in very small pieces, so that they are no longer detected or dangerous in the fillets and can be eaten comfortably with the meat.
With a special adapter (available as acessoire) you can also cut now the fillets in chips or stripes (and, for example serve it fried or on salad).
There is also a stripe or cube cutter available (i.e. for hering or salmon) which saves about 50 % of working time. The cutting distance can be choosen in steps of 4 mm, i.e. 8, 12, 16, 20 mm (please mention at order).

On request also an electric bone cutter is available.


PINBONE REMOVERS for fish filets

Automatic PinbonerFor removing of small and unwanted pin-bones from larger fresh, de-frosted or smoked filets (from about 150 g filet weight on, like: Salmons, Trouts and Charrs) different pinboners, from compact handheld devices to automatic band machines, are available. All machines (motor: 220-240 V, 50-60 Hz) are building from non-corrosive material to the quality and work with the same principles. The deboning unit can je adjusted in height, angel and speed. The belt can also be adjusted in speed. During operation, the machine units are keept clean with water or air. The unique mechanical picking action of theese pinboners gently removes neck- and pinbones (90-95 % at single- and 95-100 % at twin-systems), leaving fillets looking their best. Pinboning is not only removing the pin bones, but important is also not to break pin bones, not to bleach the fillet by water, and keep the fillet without gaping. They are very user and maintenance friendly and allow fast working. The pinboners are ideal for use by fish processors, fish mongers, fish shops, fish restaurants etc., giving excellent results with best possible yields and minimum weight loss. Optionally all machines are available as twin models (with 2 heads after each other). As accessoire also a vacuum system is available which sucks away the bones and water from the fillets.

Due to continuing further development and in close cooperation with the leading professional institutes and associations of fish- and meat industry, as well as due to many suggestions from application in gastronomy, this devices are the most matured smoker, a fact that is confirmed by the best cooks all over the world, as well as by FIMA (marketing institute of the fish industry), by many professional associations as for example VDK (association of cooks) and last but not least by many foreign unions and professional hotel schools.  This smokers with its approved technic are in operation worldwide. It is a product for special gastronomy as smoking is possible at any time in presence of the customer - also in delicatesse-shops, in the groceries store, at the butchers, at the party-service, restaurants, beer-gardens etc.
In the electronic pressure chamber grill and fumigator you can easily prepare hot or cold smoked specialities ready to serve within very short times. You can work with the oven in closed rooms - smoking indoors - always a pleasure. Fish and meat are not cooked directly by firewood or infrared heat, but indirectly by the hot air inside of the pressure chamber. The tightly closing door guarantees that only a very small amount of smoke and thus nearly no moisture are let out. Proper gravy will be preserved, which is a great advantage in comparison to other smoking processes. Fish is put, with its belly up, onto the special grates. Flat-fish, fillet, meat are smoked on the flat grids. Flavour and proper gravy will remain. Cooking without addition of grease, therefore low on calories. Constant temperature and optimal diffusion of smoke (pressure) will lead to a good cooking and a golden-brown colour of the smoked food. After the timer has run off, smoke will deposit on the inside of the walls. The darker they are, the better the taste will be. The special heat-resisting sealing of the doors needs neither maintenance nor renewal. Very low energy costs, over 60% of cooking-terms you can grill and cook without electricity. The double-casing guarantees that no water can enter. All electric parts are protected. Both the interior and exterior of the smokers as well as tin-plates and grates are made of stainless steel. No rusting or loss of colour and enamel. Very short pre-heating times and very low energy consumption due to completely insulated double-casing. Switches and control lamps on the front side a design suitable for modern kitchen. Heating with thermostatic regulation, automatic timer.

For cold-smoking, the burning box is filled with smoke-flour and the draft regulation is completely closed after lighting. The smoke-flour becomes carbonised and with a maximum fill of the burning box the oven smokes up to 15 hours.
For hot-smoking a fire is kindled in the burning-box. The temperature will be set by the draft regulation. As soon as the smoked goods are dry and cooked, the draft regulation is to be completely closed and the fire is covered with smoke-flour to get a good smoke development. You will get best smoked-results by using pure beech wood. More simple, more comfortable and above all more economically you will smoke your goods with the gas heater.

Gas heater:
Drying and cooking: With full power of the gas heater - without smoke-flour pan.
Smoking: Cutting down of the heater to half power and simply putting the filled smoke-flour pan ontop of it. When the smoke development is completed, the gas heater is switched off and the smoke process is finished.


ISOLATED SMOKING DEVICES made of stainless steel

Curing DeviceGood and consistent curing results appeal to your customers and widens your customer base best. This electrically (380 Volt/50 Hz) heated smoking devices have a capacity of 100-300 fishes (resp. 70-200 kg meat) per smoking time of 30-90 minutes. The 3 switchable (2/4/6 kw) heating coils with the precision thermostate, timer and thermometer produces heat and smoke for cooking and smoking slowly. A smoke pipe connection (120 mm), and the well doubble isolated (50 mm) walls and door prevents heat loss and makes curing possible also in closed rooms. The fish to be cured either be laid on the racks or hung on curing hooks on the racks. As accessoires special curring hooks, racks and curring meal (wood chips) are available. A build in connection pipe for/and an external smoke generator (for cold smoking), as well as a smoke pipe regulation valve, smoke pipes and bows are available too. For a rational working, trolleys (WxDxH approx. 61x48x110-185 cm with 4-10 layers) and build in ramps are available.

LIQUID SMOKE SYSTEMS for stable product quality

Liquid smoke systems Typ TFSR 80-100This systems are completely different to traditional ones in a way, that they need no smoke generator and burner, because instead of a generator, a tank with liquid smoke will be brough to a pressure of 3-5 bar.
At this patented technology, liquid smoke will be spreaded via an ventilation system over nozzles and recircled during closed ventiles. During this process a steam- and gas phase is build, which generates a non visible smoke. This "smoke" is physically identical with conventional smoke, with all durability- and tast giving substances (carbonyls, acids and phenols) but has no tarphase and other undesired matters (Benzo-a-pyren).
The complete system is microprocessor controlled and allow easily the programming of   temperatures, moisture, times etc. as well as to save up to 99 programs (with 20 steps each). The actual and required parameters as well as alarms etc. are shown on a digital display.
For the full automatic cleaning process (without agressive cleaners or personel) all equipment is placed in the cabinet and the program is started - thats all! Beside smoking, with this cabinets you can also curing, steaming, cooking, backing, roasting etc. all with an allways stable product quality.

As standard the following types are available:

Type/Modell TSFR 80 TSFR 90 TSFR 100
Dimensions cm 117x 99x216 132x109x246 147x119x280

Fishes

FRESHWATER FISHES with quality

Arctic Charr (Salvelinus alpinus) and Lake Trout (Salmo trutta lacustris):
The breeders origins from populations of alpine lakes. Suitable for stocking in alpine lakes, reservoirs and dams, as well as for the production of seafood. The fish are raised in netcages with live zooplankton and therefore are extremely vital and of high stocking value. A high growth rate as well as an excellent meat combined with a nice colour and large sizes are main characteristics. Tests with tagged fish have shown that fingerlings of 3-5 cm is the most economic size for stocking, as the adaptation of much larger fingerlings to the lakes is more difficult.

Grayling (Thymallus thymallus) and Danube Salmon (Hucho hucho):
The breeders are caught in springtime in various rivers, reproduction and raising takes place at the nursery farm on lake "Wallersee" with live zooplankton and later on also with dry food.

Pike (Esox lucius), Pike Perch (Sander lucioperca) and Burbot (Lota lota):
The mother breeders are catched in lakes. Reproduction and raising of fingerlings with live plankton takes place at the nursery farm on lake "Wallersee". Stocking of fingerlings with 3-4 cm is most economic and is more as anought in most waters.

Sturgeons (Acipenseridae):
After years of studies and experiments among most known sturgeon species and hybrids, now from our own broodstock are available -
Siberian Sturgeon (Acipenser baerii): An easy to keep sturgeon which is used mainly for aquaculture and caviar production (available from fertilized eggs to pregraded females).
Russian Sturgeon (Acipenser gueldenstaedtii): A beautifull sturgeon (light scutes on dark ground) which is well accepted as ornamental fish for garden ponds.
Ship Sturgeon (Acipenser nudiventris): A rare and interesting sturgeon which builds also freshwater resident populations (in the Ural and Danube rivers).
Sterlet (Acipenser ruthenus): A slow growing sturgeon which is mainly used for restocking (in the Danube River) but also for the aquarium trade (available also as albino).
Beluga (Huso huso): The "Caviar fish" with the best growth rate, within 2 years a weight of up to 10 kg can be obtained with a water temperature of 20° C.

We produce over 20 fish species during the year like: Chondrostoma nasus, Barbus barbus, Silurus glanis and others.


SPAWNING AGENTS for finfish

In nature, reproductive development and spawning in finfish is controlled by environmental factors such as temperature, photoperiod, nutrition, water quality, and presence of spawning substrate. In aquaculture, it is not always possible or economically feasible to replicate nautral conditions especially as many species are now grown some distance from their original geographic location. Thus, endocrine or a combrination of endocrine and environmental manupulations are utilized to facilitate reproduction. In the last decade significant research has been conducted worldwide on ripening fish sexuality using various preparations.
Carp Pituitary Extract (CPE) are acetone dried pituitaries of carps, which are pulverized and can be used to speed up maturation (induced maturation) as well as the spawning process itself (induced spawning). Intramuscular injections are highly effective in increasing the incidence of spawning as well as possibly increasing egg take in certain species. The potential economic benefits of taking eggs earlier (or later) in a given season or in fact eliminating seasonality altogether in certain climates and regions are significant. Carp pituitary extract contains a variety of pituitary hormones, including gonadotropins, which are effective for the induction of final maturation and ovulation. CPE is administered in distilled water or physiological saline and injected intramusculary at a dose of 1-10 Milligram/kg fish. Available in vials of 1 Gramm (= 1000 Milligram).


TRANQUILIZERS for aquatic animals

Eugénol (Clove-oil) is a very usefull, natural and environmental friendly tranquilizer, which can be used for various fish species. A higher tolerance against longer exposure times gives a greater security and makes the application under practice condition much more easier. Because of the low dosage (30-50 ppm) there occures also no alteration of the taste of the fishes. Available as pure oil in vials of 10 or 100 Milliliter.


DISINFECTANTS for aquaria and aquaculture

We supply various chemicals for desinfection in aquaculture and aquaria. Some chemicals are in some countries only allowed for fish which are not used for human consumption, like eggs, spawners or ornamental fish.
The following chemicals are available:

Actomar for desinfection of equipment, fish and eggs;
Chloramin against gill diseases and Myxobacteria;
Copper sulfate against gill diseases and algae;
Virkon against bacterioses and viroses;


CONSULTING for aquaculture and fishery

An european-wide 25 years' experience and know how in the field of aquaculture, longtime cooperations with important scientific instituts and researchers, worldwide contacts and the experience-exchange on numerous international congresses and symposiums are the base of our respectable and successfull consulting in management of waters and fish stocks, and in planning and construction of production systems, not only for freshwater but also for brackish- and seawater.
In cooperation, our team can offer:

Natural waters:
Consulting in questions of water-management, composition of ecologic rational stocking-plans. Accompany (also scientifical) on restocking-projects for Sturgeons, Salmons, Trouts, Pearlmussels a.s.o. Realizing of water-investigations and fishstock-examinations. Settlement of fishing-actions with electricity, seine- and gillnets in lakes and rivers. Planktoncatch- and stockanalysis for lakes, ponds, lagoons and fjords etc.
Management of fish-stocks in fresh- and seawater. Solutions for parasite-problems, slow growing fish-stocks or to low catch-quotes. Suggestions for high catch-compulshion. Motherbreeder-catch, re-production and reward rearing of autochthone and sensive fish species and formes (with zoopankton).

Production systems:
Planning of farming and production systems for freshwater and marine fishes as well as shrimp. Calculation and preparation of economy- and feasibility-studies as well as water- and market analysis and project reports and funding proposals. Engineering in the field of aquaculture and marine. Construction of hatchery-, nursery-, netcage-, recirculation- and docking-systems. Management and marketing for fish production plants. Education and mediation of professional personnel for aquaculture and fishery.
We also developed a new economy-business plan model, based on a table calculation program (like MS Works, Excel or Lotus). You can enter all variables like: feeding rates an conversion factors, survival and selling rates, stocking density and tank sizes, prices etc. and it will calculate approximately forcast growth and stocks, investment and operation costs and all other requirements.

PUBLICATIONS about fish and farming

The Sturgeons and Paddlefishes (Acipenseriformes) of the World: Biology and Aquaculture.
By Martin Hochleithner and Jörn Gessner.
An extended, updated and reviewed third edition. Soft- or Hardcover, 248 pages.

The breeding and culture of sturgeons in captivity has advanced rapidly over the past several years. With recent developments, the requirements of the industry have changed, and the techniques used have also evolved and been adapted to meet these changing needs. Based on experience gained in the the former USSR, new technologies have been developed, and the background of sturgeon biology has been enlightened in many respects. This compendium is designed to close the information gap between scientists and practitioners. Its appeal will be far reaching since biologists, field technicians, hatchery operators and fish farmers, fisherman and fish enthusiasts, will all find a wealth of practical information relevant to their field of interest. The book has the style of a species synopsis coupled with everything anyone needs to know about the reproduction and culture of acipenserid fishes. It summarizes current knowledge on all sturgeon and paddlefish species worldwide and presents it as a practitioner-oriented working guide. It draws on the experience and research findings of the authors gained over more than two decades. The new, third edition has been updated, extended, and reviewed, and includes many new colour illustrations. It value will be timeless.

Sturgeon Fishes (Acipenseriformes): Science as Art.
By Paul Vecsei and Martin Hochleithner.
Hardcover, 120 pages.

Sturgeon illustrator Paul Vecsei and sturgeon farmer Martin Hochleithner are both internationaly well known specialists in the field of sturgeon research and aquaculture. In this volume, they showcase the numerous sturgeon species and highlight the plasticity of sturgeon morphology (both within and between species) using more than 130 detailed illustrations and many summary tables. The material in this book is the culmination of 5000 hours of scientific illustrations. Each illustration is of an individual fish and is extremely accurate. They are made in the technique of pointillism, a known fine-art technique. Each picture is made by small dots, which, when viewed for a distance, creates a very detailed rendition of shape and form. Sturgeon afectionados, sturgeon experts and art lovers will appreciate the collection of illustrations in this unique work.

The Bibliography of Acipenseriformes: With over 10000 References.
By Martin Hochleithner, Jörn Gessner and Sergej Podushka.
Available as searchable electronic version (on CD-ROM) or printed book version (over 500 pages).

This bibliography, which includes nearly all publications from around the world, and covers all Acipenseriforms and a range of topics, is intended to serve as a ready reference for researchers, fisheries managers, aquaculturists and conservationists who work with this ancient fish group. The numerous references are listed alphabetically by author(s) and chronologically by year(s), as the original title. Almost all sturgeon- and paddlefish species are threatened or endangered. Information on them is by no means complete, whether in fields related to sturgeon culture, biology, ecology or management. Due to the current rate of wild-stock exploitation and environmental degradiation, the availability of new information might prove crucial for their survival. This is an attempt to disseminate information about work carried out to date, and to increase its availability.

The Bibliography of Acipenseriformes: Update of the 2000's.
By Martin Hochleithner, Jörn Gessner, Sergej Podushka, Mohammad Pourkazemi and Qiwei Wei.
An update for the years 2000-2009. Paperback, 280 pages.

This bibliography, which covers all Acipenseriforms and a range of topics, is intended to serve as a ready reference for researchers, fisheries managers, aquaculturists and conservationists who work with this ancient fish group. Almost all sturgeon- and paddlefish species are threatened or endangered. Information on them in any field is by no means complete, whether related to sturgeon culture, biology, ecology or management. In many aspects sturgeon biology is very different from that of other fishes, and techniques suitable for other species may not work with them. Due to the current rate of wild-stock exploitation, the availability of new information might prove crucial for their survival. This is an attempt to disseminate information about work carried out to date, and to increase its availability. This is the most important and comprehensive bibliography about Acipenseriformes, and includes nearly all publications from around the world. The references are listed alphabetically by author(s) and chronologically by year(s). This update includes the years 2000-2009. This update is allready included in the bibliography on CD-ROM.
