Aquaculture cage cleaning is very necessary during farming. But most people have no idea how to make aquaculture cage cleaning. In this article, we are going to share acknowledge of aquaculture cage cleaning.
Because the cage is soaked in the water for a long time, the net is usually blocked by many algae organisms or sundries. It will decrease the water filtration and culture growth for insufficient oxygen or plankton. Usually, there are 3 ways to remove the dirt from the cage. They are mechanical cleaning, biological cleaning and chemical cleaning.
1. Mechanical cleaning is commonly used nowadays. One person brought up the net, and another wash the net with a high-pressure water gun. This method is low labour intensity and can quickly clean the net.
2. Biological cleaning. Some fishes can eat the algae and attachments in the cage. It has been proven that blunt snout bream, tilapia and crucian carp can do the same.
3. Chemical cleaning. In order to solidify calcium carbonate powder and mesh, polyvinyl chloride and polyamide can be used as adhesives. People can attach the adhesives on the net first. then calcium carbonate powder can be added after the hand. Or people can mix the two on the net.
When the cage is damaged, it should be repaired in time. In ordinary production, people should check cage and rope frequently. When the rope is damaged or broken, it should be replaced quickly. When the box is broken, it can be made up. If the hole is too big, it should be mended with the mesh.
