Aquaculture is unfamiliar to most people. Everyone is familiar with agriculture, which describes the practice of and science behind traditional farming. This includes the rearing of farm animals such as sheep, cows, and chickens, as well as soil cultivation for growing crops. Aquaculture, on the other hand, refers to the cultivation of fauna and flora underwater. This requires more expertise, as the cultivated environment is usually contained by a large tank on a farm. These tanks can be above the ground or often sunken into the ground.
Aquaculture tanks must meet certain requirements. An obvious requirement is ample structural integrity of the tank wall. Water has a density of 1000 kg/m3, which means that 1 ℓ of water weighs a kilogram. Once such a tank is filled to the brim with thousands of litres of water, the pressure it exerts is quite substantial. That is why these tanks are commonly sunken into the ground so that their walls are supported by the soil around them. If you are looking for quality aquaculture tanks, Aquadam has an ideal solution.
