Aquaculture

Simple, Cost-Effective Waste Removal for Applications Large and Small

TenCate Geotube® industrial fabrics deliver solutions for aquaculture applications.  From our complete product line for the dewatering market, we offer materials that restore water quality while removing solids, unwanted nutrients from fish cages, and fish processing plant waste.  TenCate Geotube® dewatering technology is cost-efficient and can remove up to 95% of solids. 

Now approved as a Best Management Practice for Aquaculture by the State of North Carolina, TenCate Geotube® dewatering technology works for fresh water or marine finfish, shrimp, and other aquatic species.  It simplifies the process for water recirculation, and retains more than 99% of suspended solids.

TenCate Geotube® dewatering technology reduces nutrient loading in filtrate.  It can be used continuously or intermittently year-round in most climates.  It is ideal for lagoon, retention pond, and filter waste applications.  It can be used for cage waste removal, benthic table waste cleanup, recirculation waste removal for hatcheries, and processing plant waste dewatering.  Dewatered solids can be land applied or disposed of in a landfill.

TenCate Geotube® dewatering technology has been tested extensively in programs at North Carolina State University, Freshwater Institute, Mote Marine Aquaculture Park, and Virginia Institute of Technology.  More importantly, TenCate Geotube® dewatering technology has been used in the field with solid success.
