Ozone and Aquaculture

Ozone is increasingly used in aquaculture due to its numerous advantages over traditional water treatment methods. Supplementing or replacing an existing system, ozone implementation has the potential to boost the competitive advantage of your aquaculture application.


Ozone Advantages

  • Reduced Water Usage
  • Faster Growth Rates
  • Reduction of Waterborne Diseases
  • Higher Standard of Environmental Control
  • Supplements other Treatment Processes

To take full advantage of ozone, you have to understand the basics. Click here to learn more.

Aquaculture and Ozone Solutions

Ozone Solutions carries all the equipment and expertise to handle ozone aquaculture applications, including:

Why Ozone Use is Growing in Aquaculture

  • It effectively removes organics, pesticides, discoloration, and nitrates.
  • Typically unconsumed ozone reverts back to oxygen, leaving no harmful residuals behind.
  • Ozone oxidizes long chain molecules, which are unaffected by biofiltration.
  • Ozone involves far lower risk of accidental pollution in comparison to other water treatment methods.
  • O3 improves the effectiveness of biological and particulate filtration.

Ozone Solutions' Experience

Ozone Solutions designed a system to incorporate ozone into the MinAqua talapia fish farm. Ozone was injected into two u-tubes and distributed to eight fingerling tanks to improve water quality.

Shed Enclosure


For outdoor systems like the MinAqua one, a shed enclosure is required. Ozone Solutions can design and build this type of structure.



The generator is housed inside the shed with an ozone sensor and an exhaust fan. This particular generator produces 24 pounds of ozone per day. Exhaust fan starts upon detection of an ozone leak.

Fingerling Tank

Eight 3,500 gallon fingerling tanks are supplied with ozone. Each tank can hold up to 90,000 fingerlings.

Ozone Sensor

Ozone Sensor

Ozone alarms are installed for the safety of personnel. In this case there are two set-points. The first is an intermittent alarm, which is triggered at 0.25 ppm. The second alarm activates a ventilation fan at 0.5 ppm. Ozone levels are displayed on the sensor readout.
