Aquabiotech Inc.

Founded in 1989 AQUABIOTECH INC. is the first Canadian firm to
have developed and used an intensive fish rearing system with
99.9% water recycling and more than 96% water heating economy
in winter. After 5 years of R&D, this competitive technology
is being offered for fry and juvenile culture(rearing volume
1 to 60 m³). About 10 different species (cold, cool, fresh and
saltwater) are presently reared with the REFB (Recirculation
de l'Eau avec Filtration Biologique) in Quebec.
AQUABIOTECH was selected for the turnkey setting of Laval
University aquaculture laboratory (LARSA), now qualified as
the state of the art in Canada. In 1999 AQUABIOTECH was
installed the Nova Scotia Agricultural College's aquaculture
laboratory. The company is presently
setting up sales forces across Canada and abroad.
In cooperation with three progressive companies, AQUABIOTECH
also develops sophisticated electronic equipment for aquaculture
(astrol photoperiod controlle).
A unique demonstration area for the production of 50,000 Atlantic
salmon smolts permits testing technology before sales.
AQUABIOTECH is dedicated to offer reliable services and
equipment to fish farmers, aquaculture researchers and teachers.

Product Name: Astral photoperiod controller
The SunMatch™ is an astral photoperiod controller that operates
on fluorescent and incandescent lights. It reproduces natural
photoperiod according to the date, longitude, and latitude,
and recreates dawn and dusk by automatically increasing light
intensity, thus preventing light stress on animals. You can
modify the duration of any season for reproduction control of
captive animals. For research, animal husbandry, horticulture.
