Forsta High-Efficiency, Corrosion-Resistant Filters Maintain Water Quality in Fish Hatcheries
Forsta self-cleaning filters for fish hatcheries effectively reduce particle load, prevent the introduction of invasive species, and provide efficient and reliable water quality regulation.
In Northern California a National fish hatchery spawns and raises Chinook salmon and steelhead trout; producing over 14 million juvenile fish each year. After being released from the hatchery the fish migrate downstream in the Sacramento River to the Pacific Ocean and then, after 1-3 years, return to the hatchery to spawn. Fish produced at the hatchery serve an important mitigation function by partially compensating for lost natural production resulting from construction of dams, while also contributing substantially to regional economies.
As the demand for seafood has increased, technology has made it possible to grow food in coastal marine waters and the open ocean. Aquaculture is a method used to produce food and other commercial products, restore habitat and replenish wild stocks, and rebuild populations of threatened and endangered species. In both marine and freshwater aquaculture systems, meticulous control of water conditions can help to increase yield, produce high-quality fish, improve population density and reduce the risk of disease and contamination. Forsta self-cleaning filters for seawater and fresh water hatchery environments effectively reduce particle load, prevent the introduction of invasive species, and provide efficient and reliable water quality regulation.
Forsta A2-LP180C model filter with 50u screen provides efficient and reliable suspended particle removal in a freshwater fish hatchery. The 180C series offers a first-stage coarse protection screen, and a second-stage fine screen. The 180C filter line accommodates simple online installation, with the water-saving advantage of using only a single 1″ flush valve. Flush volume is as little as 4-16 gallons per backwash. 180C filters are ideal for irrigation, municipal, or industrial applications where installation footprint, weight, or flush volume are of concern.
