Why Recirculating Filtration Circuit on a Hatchery?

Traditionally, all hatcheries whether marine or fresh, have been using “open tap practices” to feed water to the hatchery tanks. It is now proved that, larvae and fries are very sensitive to slight difference in water quality. It is time for investors not to depend on weather conditions and bad luck coming from an invisible attack.

The last 10 years have been revolutionary in developing the proper equipment to secure the biological support on hatcheries and fish farms in general. Latest R&D by MAT has led to the design and fabrication of operation friendly RAS equipment to provide the systems to secure the water parameters of fish farms, but in the same time, keeping the farm sustainable.

Why MAT RAS Technology?

We fabricate equipment to support life, and we are proud of this. MAT has been in the business of biologically charged water filtration for over 25 years. Our expertise has come from many years of designing and fabricating equipment for a highly competitive industry. World’s largest production of farmed marine fish is in the Mediterranean Sea, where MAT has its fabrication facility.

Our development resulted from working with competitive and pioneer investors seeking for solutions in an ever demanding industry. Mat is continuously developing simpler and more effective equipment expanding its range of equipment biannually. We carry equipment for the RAS support of all farmed living organisms marine or fresh water.

Aquaculture Hatchery Engineering

Our aim is to provide tested engineering solutions at a sustainable cost using proper long lasting quality components on our RAS systems. MAT is cooperating with multiple independent RAS designer firms and has the capacity to support properly the farm owners and operators. MAT facility has been fabricating OEM for other aquaculture specialist vendors equipment and is welcoming such cooperations, respecting NDA’s and clients’ rights.

MAT is collaborating with insurance policy providers to reassure that our RAS engineering complies with most fish farms insurance coverage policies. Our engineers are continuously seeking to develop solutions that cover the diverse needs of fish farms and RAS consultants we cooperate with. Our engineering solutions are covered under a CAR global policy that meets the requirements of our clientele.
