Gaia, a global leader in the development and application of super oxygen saturation systems empowered by ultrafine/nanobubble technology, has had an ongoing relationship with Cermaq, Canada for over 10 years, starting with evaluation systems and progressing to full implementation in several of their farms in Canada and Chile. Gaia’s patented super saturation technology continues to be a leader in ultrafine/nanobubble systems designed to boost oxygen levels in aquaculture, remediate algae and improve fish health and growth.
Scientists for decades have noted the increasing frequency of phytoplankton blooms (algae) as global temperatures rise. These current warming trends in the oceans cause phytoplankton blooms, reduced health and low harvest weight due to less than optimal dissolved oxygen levels. The warmer the water the lower the level of naturally occurring dissolved oxygen. These occurrences, experienced around the world, have a significant negative impact on open ocean aquaculture.
Gaia’s patent pending process for creating oxygen ultrafine/nanobubbles is vital to the future of aquaculture producers, remediating phytoplankton while providing sustainable oxygen levels that maximize fish health and growth.
In the July/August 2019 issue of Aquaculture North America, salmon producer Cermaq, Canada speaks about the use of Gaia ultrafine/nanobubble technology in delivering oxygen efficiently to their farms to help mitigate the effects of low dissolved oxygen in ocean water. Gaia’s ultrafine/nanobubbles remain stable in solution for a much longer time than other aeration systems in use by many producers. Further, Gaia ultrafine/nanobubble oxygenation technology can be deployed at varying depths depending on pen construction.
Gaia continues to work with aquaculture companies worldwide to provide them with ultrafine/nanobubble technical expertise and installation support to meet their needs.
