Tassal – Smolt Challenge System

CLIENT: Tassal

LOCATION: Ranelagh, Tasmania

YEAR: 2020

Did you know that before salmon are transported to the sea cages, each group must be challenged to ensure they are biologically ready for the rapid change from freshwater to saltwater? Google “smoltification”. We built and tested these two challenge systems in the workshop, packed them up and shipped down to Tasmania for a nice quick install by our Tassy based crew.

Component breakdown of each system:

  • 2 x 1000L Poly Tanks
  • FBD crafted Filter Sump using bags for mechanical filtration followed by a Moving Bed Biofilter then a pumping sump
  • Chiller on a loop for temp control
  • Pump through a 50W UV then back to the tanks
  • Custom Tank Lids

We supply these same systems to schools and hobbyists as well.
