As previewed in our last blog, Purewell have delivered the first batch of lumpfish rearing tanks to a new site. We said “In order to meet the demand for both research projects and future breeding/rearing requirements, Purewell have developed a range of lumpfish tanks which will meet those demands and provide research facilities with the high quality equipment to conduct tests, and lumpfish production organisations with robust, purposeful tanks built to withstand the rigours of such an environment.
Purewell’s new lumpfish tanks start with a 1m diameter x 1m deep tank, perfect for young stock and with an integral stainless steel screen and a low maintenance sump. These can be supplied freestanding or ready to drop into a pre-laid drainage/RAS system”, and here shown with external level control units and with a set of smaller fry tanks to accompany these first tanks.
The next phase of the lumpfish project is a larger tank with an innovative internal design for the growing stock to live on.
