Optimale Futterversorgung Ihrer Fische

Fish Feed Reliably!

Every fish farmer's primary objective is to rear the fish as quickly and healthily as possible. For optimum growth, it is vital that the fish are fed continuously and regularly. These factors are important in determining water quality and feed conversion rates.

Amateur fish farmers often have the problem of being unable to go to their ponds daily. However, it is important that the fish are fed daily. This can be done easily, and reliably, with pendulum feeders, or feeders with vibrator motors.

On more complex fish farms, a more sophisticated and extensive feeding system is required. The commercial success of the farm is very dependent on the food utilisation and the ability to increase feeding in line with growth. Fish – like people – should receive smaller portions several times a day. In the case of “manual feeding” on large fish farms this means a high labour costs. If 4 to 5 feeds per day are carried out, it is usual to have one worker who's sole duty is to feed the fish.

This results in a high labour cost, and there is no time for other work. Under these circumstances, feed sprayers become cost-effective, and offer economic advantage. Feed sprayers feed the fish automatically, according to the farmer's preferences. This leaves time for other work.

The Linn Company produces a wide range of automatic systems to apply and spread the feed in ponds and tanks. The following pages give full details.
