Biofouling & parasites?
Let nano-cavitation help you!
AFS is searching for solutions for problems in the aquaculture. Salmon farmers experience big problems with algae and sea lice. This crustacean, which is usually smaller than 1 cm, attaches itself to the skin of the salmon. There it finds its way through the mucus layer and the skin into the salmon’s bloodstream, where it feeds. The small creatures grow and the females lay their eggs. Algae / biofouling on the nets for example is also difficult to control / get rid of.
The use of harmful pesticides has substantially increased over the past years, however sea lice have become resistant. Currently there is a sea lice infestation that could be explained by this resistance. Another disadvantage: these pesticides are not selective and are therefore also lethal to crabs, lobsters, shrimp and more. Residues have been found in underground waters. Algae / biofouling is controlled by anti-fouling, high pressure cleaners, robots and other mechanical forms of cleaning.

The C-Dome contains 4 or 6 powerful H2O Europe C-100 resonators and is operated by a unique computer system, which is installed in a waterproof casing. The C-Dome is positioned in the centre of the cage and the waterproof casing is mounted onto the cage frame.
The C-Dome has a built-in air chamber, allowing it to float at the desired level. It is made of 100% polyethylene, has a 70 cm diameter and weighs approx. 20 kg.
Since fish cages come in all shapes and sizes, we have developed the V-Dome.
The V-Dome holds 2 H2O Europe C-100 resonators which can be fixed at any desired angle, making the system suitable for all cage models. The waterproof casing with the unique computer system and the V-Dome are both mounted onto the cage frame.
