Fish Farm Boom

Fish Farm Boom

Fish Farm Boom is used at commercial aquaculture and mariculture operations that raise and sell fish. The use of containment boom at fish farms provides numerous benefits. It concentrates the feed in a contained area, despite wind or waves. By corralling the fish food and keeping the feed away from the shoreline, it prevents the waste of feed that beaches. The use of Fish Farm Boom also keeps shore birds, raccoons, other animals, and fish from feeding along the shoreline, thus reducing the loss of fish to these predators. For areas where feral hogs and wild pigs are a problem, it also prevents these pests from damaging the pond shorelines as they consume and root for fish food that has drifted ashore. An investment in containment boom for fish farming quickly yields financial benefits over time, based on direct feedback from our customers.
