Hydromerd is a pen system with multiple areas of application. It was primarily developed for use as a semi-closed holding pen, but also has a wide range of uses as a production unit. The pen is made from a composite material comprised of multiaxial fibreglass and thermoset plastic. The pen has ballast tanks that enable the pen’s entire volume to be raised above the surface of the water, which means it can be air dried and is simple to clean.
Hydromerd reduces or eliminates the need for direct delivery by a fish carrier and therefore also the associated costs.
The pen can be installed as a standalone unit, or integrated and anchored in an existing steel cage facility.
