Aquaculture Gases

The rapidly increasing global demand for seafood has created the need for advanced technologies to grow food in controlled aquatic settings. Aquaculture, also known as aquafarming, is the process of breeding, raising and harvesting fish, shellfish, algae and other organisms in marine and freshwater environments. In the U.S., aquaculture helps to produce various fish species, such as oysters, clams, mussels, salmon, shrimp, black sea bass and yellowtail.

Various gases play a prominent role in all phases of aquaculture and provide essential support for the industry. A Meritus Gas Partners independently operated distributor can ensure your business has an ample supply of high-quality gases for specific aquaculture applications.
