Micro Algea Unit in Europe
Our on-growing and fry species
What do we do?
As Akvatek, in order to add value to our industry, we continuously conduct R&D studies in order to to achieve maximum efficiency and results closest to nature and also cultivate different, untested and high economic value species as aquaculture.
First example of the White Grouper cultivation in aquaculture industry
In our closed circuit algae production unit, which is the largest in Europe, with the production of Rotifer and Artemia system, from the larval stage, we enrich rotifers with 4 different algae cultures, which are the main sources of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids to meet the animal nutritional needs of fish with zooplankton as in their natural environment.
In the hatchery 3% of the total water is changed each hour. This is possible thanks to the use of drum filters, protein skimmers, disinfection with ozone and ultraviolet light, and biological filters, which clean the water before it is recycled. The 3% of new water that enters the system is to compensate for the loss of water through evaporation or from the
drum filter. The fish reared in this system are also primed for being introduced into the sea.
All of our cages are positioned in offshore areas where the water quality is the best for cultivation in Turkey. In this way, we do not prevent the movement of the fish continuously in cold water which is inherent in fish species such as Seabass, and we avoid the fat structure remaining only in the skin of the fish as in easy and common cultivation methods in glassy, warm water in coves. Since with our methods fatty acids such as Omega 3 and Omega 6 are included in the muscle structure of the moving fish, we offer much more delicious and healthy fish to the table.
Growing fish to large sizes such as over 1 kg comes with a cost. Normally a seabass reaches 1 kg in 4 years, though as Akvatek, we have managed to reduce that period to 3 years, while a 2 kg fish takes 5 years.
