Selling fish breeding cages

In recent decades in Iran, the industrial methods of fish farming and aquaculture have replaced the traditional methods in this field, for example, in the southern regions of Iran and the shores of the Caspian Sea, in addition to the use of common methods such as fish breeding ponds, this is a fully industrial method. And much more profitable, it is also used in the name of fish breeding cage, this method is also known by other names such as sea cage and aquatic breeding cage.

The profession and occupation of aquaculture in today’s modern world, like other occupations, requires sufficient expertise, knowledge and skills. The use of the new and industrial method of fish breeding cages, considering the potential of the geographical areas, increases the profitability and employment of the residents and owners of those areas.

One of the most important uses of fish breeding cages as one of the aquatic breeding equipments is the temporary storage of fishes until they are ready to be marketed. In addition to the fish breeding cage tour, Hyper Sanat rothenplast company provides different types of fish breeding cages, which include the following:

Technical specifications of the fish breeding cage

Aquaculture in cages has attracted the attention of most countries of the world in recent years due to its advantages and high productivity. This method is also used in Iran due to favorable geographical conditions.

Among the suitable environments for the use of aquarium breeding cages, we can mention sea water, mirage, water behind dams, natural lakes and beaches. is placed

Fish breeding system based on dense and semi-dense

In the fish breeding cage, two methods are used to keep aquatic animals, which are as follows:

Dense system: In the high density method, fish are kept in high numbers and feeding the aquatic animals is done manually. The feeding of aquatic animals in this method includes mineral and protein concentrate.
Semi-dense system: In cage fish farming, when the extensive or semi-dense method is used, the fish are kept in an extensive manner. Feeding in this method is done without the need of hands and in a natural way from water products, it is worth mentioning that this method is suitable for breeding fish such as carp and goldfish that eat everything.

Types of fish breeding cages

According to the size, type of fish and geographical region, the fish breeding cage has different types, such as fixed, floating, submersible and submersible fish breeding cages, and we will introduce each of them below.

fish breeding cages

Fixed fish breeding cage
Fish breeding in fixed cages

The structure and mechanism of fish breeding in fixed cages is such that cage net bags with specific spring or mesh sizes are installed by poles or rods of different diameters in the bed of rivers, lakes and backwaters of dams. to be

Using and buying a fixed fish breeding cage is cost-effective due to its convenient design, and the process of breeding aquatic animals is done in it with ease. At the time of installing the fixed aquaculture cage, it should be noted that this fish cage is set up in shallow beds and has limitations in terms of size and shape.

Floating fish cage

The structure of the floating fish cage is such that the net of the floating fish breeding cage with different mesh sizes that are determined according to the type of fish floats in the water by a thick ring ring or a floating frame that may be made of steel. , metal and polyethylene is galvanized, it is fixed.

It is recommended to use this cage in the southern regions of the country as well as in saltwater aquaculture in order to increase the use of floating fish breeding cages.

The purchase and use of floating fish breeding cages is more than other models of aquatic breeding cages, the reasons for which are the following:

  • The possibility of leaving the cage in the depth of water during stormy seas, which has caused the cost of maintenance and repair of floating cages for aquatic breeding, is lower than other models of fish breeding cages.
  • Ability to set up and design in different forms

The submersible fish cage, which is also known as the tension base cage, has the same structure as the floating cage for aquaculture. It is worth mentioning that the differences between these two fish cage models are few. The submersible fish breeding cage has a net bag in standard size or a small spring.

The establishment of submersible fish breeding cage is in such a way that this cage can be set up and installed at different depths by relying on wooden frames or masts. One of the advantages of this product is its high resistance to adverse weather conditions, which causes the product to be damaged later and has high efficiency.

The way to use the submersible fish breeding cage is that it is kept at the water level when the sea is calm, and it is thrown into the water and placed at a suitable depth during storms and adverse weather conditions.

The submerged cage has a simple structure that was designed in 2009 and built in 2012. This type of fish breeding cage is made of a certain number of boxes with different shapes, which are made of wood or polyethylene, and there are gaps between them for the passage of water, which causes natural food to enter the cage. One of the important things in this type of fish farming in a cage is its strength, which is provided by large stones or pike, which is another name for double-headed fish, in the water bed.

Fish breeding cage tour

The fish breeding cage tour includes three types, each of which will be described below:

Main net (Rearing net): This net is the main fish keeping net, which has 3 sizes, and according to the size change and growth of the fish, this net is replaced. Their most important feature is being anti-moss. The height of these nets is 6 to 8 meters and the spring (mesh) of the net is between 6 and 20 mm.
Protective net (Anti-predator): To protect and increase the strength of the main net, a net with a 45 mm mesh spring is used, which is called a protective net.
Anti-predator net: Anti-bird net is used in the uppermost layer of fish breeding in the cage to prevent birds from attacking. Another function of this net is to prevent the fish from leaving when the sea is stormy and the cage bag is overturned into the water.
Fish cage bag
Aquaculture cage mesh bag

One of the most important components of the fish breeding cage in all types of cages is the net bag, which must have the right conditions and structure, including:

  • The high strength of the net bag
  • Low weight of the bag
  • Resistance to adhesion of foreign substances in water
  • Resistance to weathering and decay
  • The portability of the net bag and its easy repair
  • High tensile capacity of the bag
  • Reasonable price and easy access to it

Effective factors in the placement of fish breeding cages

The location of the fish breeding cage


Water depth: The fixed fish breeding cage is set up at a depth of less than 8 meters, because if the water depth is greater, the strength of the poles will be reduced and it will no longer be able to hold the cage at greater depths. It is recommended to use tools such as echo sounder to determine the appropriate depth.
Water bed: The condition of the water bed is one of the most influential factors in choosing the design and type of fish cage. One of the important points in connection with freshwater is that it is very difficult to connect the base of the fixed cage in these waters, for this reason, it is better to use a floating fish breeding cage in these waters.
Water flow: The factor that provides oxygen and removes waste products from the life of fish is the exchange and flow of water. The appropriate water flow rate is 0.1 to 0.5 liters per second. In this range, the ideal speed is 0.2 to 0.3 liters per second. Failure to pay attention to the speed of water flow causes financial losses and high cost of containment and reconstruction of fish breeding cages.

It is worth mentioning that one of the most common fish breeding cages in Iran is the floating and fixed fish breeding cage.

Tips for installing a fish breeding cage

  • The depth of water under the net bag of the fish breeding cage should be 1 to 2 times the height of the net bag in order to prevent the accumulation of waste materials under the fish breeding cage.
  • Regionalism and predominance of the fish breeding cage to the wind blowing in the lake, which will cause its water to mix with the air and eventually aerate the net bag of the fish breeding cage.
  • Easy access to the cage and ease of feeding should be taken into consideration when choosing the bedding for the fish breeding cage.
    Paying attention to the non-entry of pollution into the cage bed and excessive fertilization of the lake
