Flow Rate through Fish Tanks in Aquaculture Research

With aquaculture playing an increasingly important role in the provision of global fish supplies, there is a corresponding growth in aquaculture related research to support the industry and optimise its activities.  F VA Trogflux rotameter flow meters have been supplied to a number of marine science centres and environmental laboratories to monitor the flow of water through fish tanks/cells and assess the impact of flow on fish health and development.  Trogflux rotameters can be supplied with PVC floats for corrosion resistance with sea water and are suitable for heated and chilled lines.
