Aquaculture Aeration : US Case Studies

A farmer in west Tennessee (Ed Davis Fish Farm) who raises minnows was having problems with his air stones clogging and not working properly. He was able to replace his expensive air stones with the Aero-Tube at about half the cost. Maintenance is also easier because Aero-Tubes will not break and can be cleaned with plain water, unlike the air stone, which has to be cleaned with muriatic acid.

Internationally known Til-Tech Aquafarm in Robert, Louisiana, produce tilapia fingerlings that are shipped around the world. They started changing from air stones to the Aero-Tube in 2005. The Aero-Tube offered a rugged alternative to the expensive air stone that kept breaking.

A state trout hatchery in Colorado was using a costly oxygen-making machine for aeration until it broke down. They replaced it with our Aero-Tube and a regenerative blower for the air supply. Since making the change, their DO is higher and they are stocking twice as many fish. Previously DO constantly had to be monitored due to trouble they were having with the oxygen-making machine. This is now down to a minimum and their maintenance has been significantly reduced.

Trent Johnson of McKenzie, Tennessee was raising tilapia in raceways in 1998 using splash aerators and paddle wheels for the aeration. These devices were expensive to purchase, maintain, and operate. Johnson’s electric bill was $2,700.00 per month. After changing over to the Aero-Tube system, his maintenance decreased noticeably, his electric bill went down to $450.00 per month, and production went up.

Aerway Manufacturing of Macon, Mississippi has been using the Aero-Tube to make a type of airlift they call the Genaire since 2005. They had a customer that was using paddle wheels in his catfish pond and was having trouble keeping his fish flavorful. In two to three weeks after changing to the Genaire, his fish had regained their flavor and the energy costs were down.
