The SENECT hatchery fry feeder enables optimal foraging and is designed for feeding small portions of small-grained or powder fish feed including feed particles
smaller than 200 µm.
The Senect hatchery fry feeder can therefore be used for the weaning of the smallest marine larvae in co-feeding regimes in combination with live feed (e.g. sea bass, sea bream) as well as for larval fish species being dirctly fed dry formulated feed like salmon and trout.
A special feature is that the feeding aperture is closed in case there is currently no feeding - to prevent moisture coming into the feeder. This mechanism avoids clogging of the fine-grained feed.
The integrated LEDs can be switched on with the SENECT control technology prior and during feeding to attract the fish and gather them under the feeder.
In combination with suitable SENECT controll units the SENECT hatchery feeder enables you to optimize the feeding process to your specific requirements.
The calibration of the feeder - matched to the selected fish feed - allows to feed precise defined amounts of feed.
Additionally, the feeding can be related to water quality parameters. For example the feed amount can be corrected in relation to the temperature (according to the feed manufacturer recommendations of the feed spec sheets). Feeding can also be stopped in case of unfavourable oxygen conditions. In case of an connected aeration or oxygenation, it can be switched on prior feeding to ensure optimal oxygen conditions to facilitate efficient digestion.
