This article was featured in EUROFISH Magazine 1 / 2021.
A German company, FIAP offers a range of equipment for the aquaculture sector from sophisticated recirculation systems to hand-held nets.
An aquaculture farm whether on land or at sea is a rough environment and the equipment used needs to be tough and reliable if the farm is to operate successfully. FIAP’s Profifeed BeltFeeder is a mechanically driven automatic feeder that can be used in the most demanding environments to deliver feed or other inputs, such as medicines or additives, to the water. The material can take any form from dust to large pellets. The feeder is started manually and can be set to run for 4, 12, or 24 hours during which time it will steadily dispense the medium enabling extremely ef- ficient workflows.

Driving this development as well as responding to it will be companies like FIAP that has made a name for itself developing and supplying equipment to the industry. The family-owned company has existed for over 40 years and today is run by two partners representing the second generation of owner-managers.
