: Feeder Floats for Fishing
With this improved design of Drennan In-Line Flat Method Feeder, both the lead in the flat base and the bait load distribute the weight into an aerodynamic bomb shape. The shape of the feeder increases casting distance and improves accuracy, particularly in strong cross-winds. On the body of the feeder, the two largest bait-holding ribs are well spaced and curved away from each other. This leaves a generous gap so that the hook bait can be placed in the optimum position. This area also aligns with a recess in a Drennan bait mould for perfect positioning every time.
A special slim-line loop-to-loop Method Connector bead, also provided, allows you to swap feeders as well as quickly change the hook link in seconds. A more recent introduction has been the Heavyweight sizes; 35g to fit the green mould and 45g to fit the larger orange mould.
These are ideal for long-range casts, casting into headwinds and offer even more purchase on a steep slope. Sometimes we are able to launch products that are better designed, a better quality of build and better value for money than the alternatives!
Step 2 — Fill the Mould with the feed of your choice. In this case, we are using softened 2mm micro pellets. Step 3 — Place the Method Feeder on top of the Mould and press down firmly. Step 4 — Remove from the Mould to reveal a perfectly baited Method Feeder. Step 5 — You may want to give the feeder an extra squeeze by hand. This compacts the bait even more securely, which can be useful if you are casting long distances or fishing in deep water.
Step 6 — The finished feeder ready for casting. The three most popular bait options for moulding around a Method Feeder are dampened 2mm micro pellets, groundbait or a mixture of the two. There is nothing to stop you trying all three options during a session to see which performs best on the day.

They dry and shrink a little if left in open air, while in water they swell somewhat. Scientists estimate that for conventional plastic corn baits it takes about years to decompose! Flavor L. Code Colour yellow red orange white pink yellowish green green. The pop-up feeder basket weighs only 2 grams. Filled with feed, it sinks to the bottom and stays there until much of the feed is dissolved.
Takes may be expected in multiple phases, either in midwater, with the bait sinking slowly together with the basket, or lying on the bottom, but often it is the bait rising up to midwater that triggers an intensive take.
The speed of sinking or rising can be controlled thanks to the adjustable design. As the feed fully dissolved, we can be sure that the bait scanning through the entire water column. This will increase our chance to find the midwater fishes. New generation method baskets and fillers A unique innovation: patented Cralusso method baskets with longitudinal ribs. Thanks to its special design the hook is less likely to become attached to the longitudinal ribs and it perfectly retains the feed as long as necessary and quickly releases it in the water.

Screen filters use some form of fine mesh material stainless steel or polyester through which effluent passes while the suspended solids are retained on the screen. Solids are usually removed from the screen by rotating the clogged screen surface inside high pressure jets of water. The solids are carried away from the screen in a small stream of waste water, Fig.
The feature that makes each screen filter different and the challenge in designing these units is the process of collecting the solids on the mesh surface.
Typical drum screen filter shown with a cut-away and expanded midsection for waste solids removal from aquacultural recycle flow streams after Losordo et al. Expandable granular media filters remove solids by passing water through a bed of granular medium sand or plastic beads.
The solids either adhere to the medium or are trapped within the open spaces between the medium particles. Over time, the filters will become clogged with solids and require cleaning, or backwashing. Backwashing these filters require that the filter bed be expanded from a compacted state to release the solids.
Floating plastic beds have low density trapping and removing suspended solids from the flow-stream as water passes up. Foam fractionation removes dissolved organic compounds DOC from the water column by physically adsorbing DOC on the rising bubbles. Fine particulate solids are trapped within the foam at the top of the column, which can be collected and removed.
The main factors affected by the operational design of the foam fractionator are bubble size and contact time between the air bubbles and DOC. A counter-current design bubbles rising against a downward flow of water improves its efficiency by lengthening the contact time between the water and the air bubbles, Fig. Pump driven by venturi type foam fractionator Losordo, Removal of dissolved inorganic wastes There are a number of methods for removing ammonia-nitrogen from water: air stripping, ion exchange, and biological filtration.
Air stripping of ammonia-nitrogen through non-flooded no standing water in the reactor packed columns require that the pH of the water be adjusted to above 10 and readjusted to safe levels 7 to 8 before the water reenters the culture tank Losordo et al. In biological filtration or biofiltration , there is a substrate with a high specific surface area large surface areaper unit volume on which the nitrifying bacteria can attach and grow.
Ammonia and nitrite- nitrogen in the recycled water are oxidized converted to nitrite and nitrate by Nitrosomonas and Nitrobacter bacteria, respectively the nitrification process will discuss in the section below. Nitrification processes Ammonia is produced as the major end product of the metabolism of protein catabolism and is excreted by fish as unionized ammonia from their gills. Ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate are all highly soluble in water.
The relative concentration of each of these forms of ammonia in the water column is primarily a function of pH, temperature and salinity. It is common in chemistry to express inorganic nitrogen compounds in terms of the nitrogen they contain, i. Biological filtration can be an effective means of controlling ammonia; opposed to water flushing control of ammonia levels. There are two phyto-genetically distinct groups of bacteria that collectively perform nitrification. These are generally categorized as chemosynthetic autotrophic bacteria because they derive their energy from inorganic compounds as opposed to heterotrophic bacteria that derive energy from organic compounds Hagopian and Riley, Ammonia oxidizing bacteria obtain their energy by catabolizing un-ionized ammonia to nitrite and include bacteria of the genera Nitrosomonas, Nitrosococcus, Nitrosospira, Nitrosolobus and Nitrosovibrio.
Nitrite oxidizing bacteria oxidize nitrite to nitrate, and include bacteria of the genera Nitrobacter, Nitrococcus, Nitrospira and Nitrospina. Nitrifying bacteria consume carbon dioxide as their primary carbon source, and obligate aerobes, which require oxygen to grow Hagopian and Riley, The two steps in the reaction are normally carried out sequentially.
Since the first step has a higher kinetic reaction rate than the second step, the overall kinetics is usually controlled by ammonia oxidation and as a result there is no appreciable amount of nitrite accumulation. Equations 2. For Nitrosomonas:. For Nitrobacter:. The reaction of nitrification and cell biomass formation can also be written as Haug and McCarty, : For Nitrosomonas. For Nitrobacter. Overall reaction Ebling et al. Two major categories of microbial flocculation systems are found in aquaculture.
The second microbial flocculation system consists of heterotrophic bacteria, where their growth is stimulated through the addition of a carbonaceous substrate. Conventional aquaculture ponds rely on the use of algal biosynthesis for the removal of the majority of the inorganic nitrogen. The major disadvantage of algal based systems is the wide diurnal variations in dissolved oxygen, pH and ammonia-nitrogen. Other disadvantages are long term changes in algal density and frequent die-offs, Burford, et al.
The biosynthesis of algae was described by Stumm and Morgan For ammonia as the nitrogen source:. Algalbiosynthesis Brune et al. This equation predicts that for every gram of ammonia-nitrogen converted to microbial biomass 4. A microbial biomass of 8. Biofilteration in RAS Biological treatment in the RAS is the use of bacteria to convert those fish dissolved wastes to cell mass and other stable end products. This section will discuss several key issues in biological treatment: 1 how wastes, bacteria, and feed are related; 2 why fixed film is the predominant biological treatment method in recirculating systems; 3 how biofilter design guidelines are derived from the needs of bacteria; and 4 how biofilter reliability is affected by the strategy employed to fulfill the design requirements.
Wastes and bacteria have a complementary relationship. Dissolved wastes generated by the fish belong to one of two major categories: organic carbon or ammonia, which are used as energy and food by bacteria, Fig. Organic carbon is both energy and food for heterotrophic bacteria which consume oxygen for respiration.
The amount of oxygen used to convert the organic waste to cell material is referred to as biochemical oxygen demand BOD. If the organic wastes are not removed by a filter, the BOD can cause that the oxygen concentration in the fish tank declines rapidly killing the fish Golz, Ammonia is an energy source for autotrophic bacteria which use alkalinity to build cell material.
Ammonia is first converted to nitrite by one group of bacteria Nitrosomnos and then to nitrate by yet another bacterial group Nitrobacter.
Nitrate is a stable end product with low toxicity and does not harm the fish in the concentrations present, but ammonia and nitrite are both highly toxic at low concentrations. Fish excrete dissolved wastes convert to cell tissue by bacteria Golz, In biofilters, the nitrifying bacteria usually coexist with heterotrophic microorganisms such as heterotrophic bacteria, protozoa and micro-metazoa, which metabolize biologically degradable organic compounds. Heterotrophic bacteria grow significantly faster than nitrifying bacteria and will prevail over nitrifying bacteria in competition for space and oxygen in biofilters, when concentrations of dissolved and particulate organic matter are high.
For this reason, it is imperative that the source water for biofilters be as clean as possible with minimal concentration of total solids. Heterotrophic bacteria grow very efficiently doubling in population about every 8 hours Golz, As Fig. Comparatively nitrifiers are less efficient requiring24 hours doubling in population Golz, As a result of the one-pound feeding Fig. To perform the conversion of ammonia to nitrate, the nitrifiers require nearly 3 ounces of alkalinity and 2 ounces of oxygen per pound of feed.
However, if the water quality is allowed to decline or the ammonia loading is suddenly increased, ammonia and nitrite levels can raise rapidly. In summary, as with nitrifiers water quality demands are stricter and their growth is less efficient than heterotrophs, selecting biological treatment on the basis of nitrification will ensure that organic carbon is also removed.
Biological treatment processes are classified as either suspended growth or fixed film. In suspended growth processes, the waste is added to a large aerated tank where it is converted to cellular material by suspended bacteria. These suspended bacteria must be removed by a solid separation device before recirculation water is returned to the culture tank.
Autotrophic bacteria time to reproduce requires that a portion of the separated solids is continually monitored and recycled to the aeration tank. Because the operational requirements of suspended growth make it a large-scale intensive process, it is infrequently employed in aquaculture systems. In contrast, fixed-film processes require much less management or maintenance, and bacterial attachment Fig. Because of its advantages biofilm nitrification has become the standard treatment method for re-circulating aquaculture systems.
Heterotrophs exist on the surface because of their higher growth rates while the slower growing nitrifiers become embedded in the biofilm Golz, Suspended growth systems were rarely found in production aquaculture with the increased utilization of microbial flocculation systems for the production of tilapia and marine shrimp. In these systems heterotrophic bacterial growth is stimulated through the addition of organic carbonaceous substrate as molasses, sugar, wheat, cassava, etc.
In traditional intensive recirculating aquaculture production systems, large fixed-film bioreactors are used; nitrification of ammonia-nitrogen to nitrate-nitrogen is carried out by ammonia oxidizing bacteria AOB and nitrite oxidizing bacteria NOB. A common problem in freshwater production systems is nitrite poisoning. This typically occurs in newly established tanks systems where the nitrifying bacteria, Nitrobacter, has not become established, in tanks that are overcrowded and overfed, and after treating the fish tank with antibodies or chemicals that kill the bacteria.
In all of these situations ammonia from metabolic wastes from the fish and from organic matter uneaten food, dead plants, etc. The bacteria Nitrosomonas oxidizes the ammonia to nitrite which is usually further oxidized to nitrate which has a low toxicity for fish. The nitrates are then removed through water changes. If the Nitrobacter bacteria is not established or becomes overwhelmed by the amount of nitrite present, nitrite levels quickly reach toxic levels.
If nitrite enters as ions primarily through chloride cells, then expected role of pH is considerably smaller. This matter will be considered be low in connection with pH.
As nitrite raises the fraction of methemoglobin in the blood, it reduces the total oxygen- carrying capacity of the blood Cameron results in hypoxia severe enough to cause sudden death but often the fish will live until they exert themselves.
A visible symptom of high methemoglobin levels is a brown color in the blood or gills. Treatment not only includes decreasing the population to decrease ammonia levels, but also adding a chloride salt in the form of sodium chloride or calcium chloride to the water. The chloride ion competes with the nitrite ion at the gills.
When the chloride ion is present at least three times and not more than six times the level of the nitrite ion, it is preferentially transported across the gills. Thus transport of the nitrite ion is reduced. Additional treatments can include emergency water changes to dilute the nitrite problem Greely, In intensive recirculating systems heterotrophic bacteria growth and organic carbon accumulation are minimized intentionally through rapid removal of solids from the system and through water exchange.
In general fixed film bioreactors are more stable than suspended growth systems Malone and Pfeiffer, In a fixed film biofilter, a thin bacterial biomass coats the filter media and the dissolved nutrients and oxygen are transported by diffusion into the biofilm. Numerous types of media have been employed to support this biofilm, including rock, shells, sand, plastic, etc.
Anything that supports a biofilm having a reasonable specific surface area has been used over the years. Biofilters employ different strategies to fulfill their design guidelines for nitrification. Malone and Pfeiffer established a decision tree with the numerous options available for providing oxygen and bio- film growth handling.
An organizational tree of Biofilters Malone and Pfeiffer, It will also use a small footprint, inexpensive media, and present minimum head loss; require very little maintenance without capturing solids.
Unfortunately there is no biofilter that meets all of these properties. Each biofilter will present its own advantages and weaknesses for a given application. Currently large scale commercial re-circulating systems have been moving towards using granular filters expanded beds, fluidized beds and floating bead beds.
However, there are many types of bio-filters that are commonly used in intensive RAS: submerged bio-filters, trickling bio- filters, rotating biological contactors RBC , floating bead bio-filters, moving bed bioreactors, fluidized-bed bio-filters and countless others.
Rotating biological contactors RBC rotate the media slowly in and out of the water, providing both nutrients and aeration. Trickling biofilters allow the water to cascade over the media in a column, transporting both nutrients and oxygen towards the media having biofilm growth. These types of biofilters are capable of high aerial ammonia conversion rates, but are limited by low specific surface area.
These types of filters also provide some carbon dioxide stripping and reduced system aeration requirements. Trickling biofilters consist of a fixed media bed through which a pre- filtered wastewater trickles down the filter height, Fig.
Like RBCs, the media is never completely submerged so bacteria can get oxygen from both exposures to air and extraction from water. Trickling filters like RBCs rely on passive biofilm shedding, so they can become clogged with excess heterotrophic growth; it reduces substrate transport and depress nitrification.
RBCs and trickling filters have very similar nitrification rates. The wastewater flows downwards over a thin aerobic biofilm diffusing the dissolved substrates into the biofilm where they are consumed by the nitrifying bacteria. As it trickles over the media, the water is continuously oxygenated and carbon dioxide is removed by the ventilated air. Eding et al. Rotating biological contactors RBC, Fig. Rotating biological contactors are widely used as nitrifying filters in aquaculture applications.
RBC technology is based on the rotation of a biofilter medium bio-discs attached to a shaft which is partially submerged in water. Rotating Biological Contactor.
The discs are rotated slowly at 1. On average, they convert about 1, mg of ammonia per cubic foot of media per day to nitrate Golz, Brazil determined an average total ammonia nitrogen areal removal rate of 0. Van Gorder and Jug-Dugakovic reported higher rates for multiple commercial scale systems of 1. Rotating biological contactors have inherent advantages for aquaculture, because they are self-aerating, require little hydraulic head, have low operating costs, provide gas stripping, and can maintain an aerobic environment.
In addition, they tend to be self cleaning due to the shearing of loose biofilm caused by the rotation of the media through the water. The main disadvantages of these systems has been the mechanical nature of its operation, the substantial weight gain due to biomass loading of the media and the resultant load on the shaft and bearings. The first major category of submerged biofilters employ a fixed, static packed bed of media that has no active management of either biofilm or solids accumulation.
Examples of fixed, static packed beds are submerged rock biofilters, plastic packed beds and shell filters. Submerged packed beds relay entirely upon endogenous respiration to control biofilm accumulation Manthe et al.
The water can flow either from the bottom up up-flow or from the top down down-flow. Hydraulic retention time can be controlled by adjusting the water flow rate. Solids from the culture tank can accumulate within the submerged filter, along with cell mass from nitrifying and heterotrophic bacteria. Large void spaces prevent filter clogging requiring of large size media, such as uniform crushed rock over 5 cm in diameter or plastic media over 2.
These filter drawbacks are low dissolved oxygen and solids accumulation, resulting from heavy organic matter feed loading and back flushing difficulty. Rock packed bed biofilter.
The Tezontle is an original stone material of igneous rocks formed by solidification of molten magma originating from eruptions. Its type is Extrusive or that solidified on the surface quickly. Its composition is CaO. SiO2 2 Vargas Tapia et al. Tezontle characteristics.
In a pilot-filter domestic type Valdivia Soto et al. Vaca Mier et al. Ortiz Polo et al. Medium sized fluidized sand biofilters Fig. The sand filter has two operational modes: filtration and washing. Flow must be provided at high rates to prevent clogging, but taking care that it will not cause media scouring. Over time, when bacterial growth begins to clog the filter, a washing mode is initiated by increasing the flow rate to scour the sand.
The fluidized-bed biofilter can easily be scaled to large sizes, and are relatively inexpensive to construct per unit treatment capacity Summerfelt and Wade, , Timmons, Since this biofilter cost is roughly proportional to its surface area, fluidized-bed biofilters are cost competitive and small in size compared to other biofilter types Summerfelt, Nitrification rates for coldwater systems range from 0.
In warmwater systems, TAN removal rates range from 0. Additional disadvantages are that they can be more difficult to operate and can have serious maintenance problems, usually due to poor suspended solids control and bio-fouling.
Microbead biofilteris distinctly different than the more commonly used floating bead filters, Fig 2. Floating bead filters work in pressured vessels and use a media that is slightly buoyant. Microbead filters use a polystyrene bead microbead, density of 16 kg per cubic meter that has a diameter of mm compared to floating bead filters media of approximately 3 mm in diameter Greiner and Timmons, These rates are similar to those used for fluidized sand beds.
When the filter is used for both biological treatment and solids capture Malone and Beecher, during the filtration mode, water flows up through the media where solids, soluble carbon, and ammonia are removed.
Bead filters are often referred to as bio-clarifiers for their ability to perform both bio-filtration and clarification in a single unit. Clarification is the process of removing suspended solids from the water.
The beads used are food-grade polyethylene mm in diameter with a specific gravity of 0. Floating bead filters are resistant to bio-fouling and generally require little water for backwash. The bead filter is typically either bubble-washed or propeller-washed during the backwash procedure. In this procedure bed expands and separates trapped solids from the beads. Bead filters advantages include their modular and compact design, ease of installation, and operation Timmons and Ebeling, The propeller-washed bio-clarifiers are operated in the filtration mode most of the time, Fig.
In general, using these filters will require the designer to provide for more oxygenation and biofiltration capacity. Bead filters are distinguished by the way the beads are washed.
The bubble washed unit is cleaned by draining and the propeller-washed units are intermittently cleaned by a propeller and The Poly Geyser Bead Filter is the next generation in Bead Filter technologies primarily through its automatic pneumatic backwash mechanism Microbead Biofilter. Aeration process Gas dissolution in water involves four major steps, and each has the potential of being rate limiting, Fig. In step 1, oxygen moves from the bulk gaseous phase into the gas-liquid interface.
In step 2 and 3, the oxygen diffuses through laminar gas and laminar liquid films, respectively. In step 4, the oxygen enters the bulk liquid phase. Under normal conditions, gas transfer resistance occurs primarily in step 2 and 3.
The transfer of highly soluble gases, such as ammonia, is restricted to the gas film while the transfer of less soluble gases, such as oxygen and nitrogen are restricted within the liquid film. In the latter case, the transfer rate is proportional to the differential between existing and saturated of a gas in solution.
If Cs — Cm is negative super-saturation gas will transfer from the liquid to the atmosphere. The four-step gas transfer process. The overall gas transfer coefficient represents conditions in a specific gas-liquid contact system Boyd Turbulence is difficult to estimate, but it’s possible to obtain the KLa value empirically between two points. Aerators for aquaculture systems There are many different types of aerating devices that are used in aquaculture.
These fall into the broad categories of mechanical aerators, gravity aerators, and air diffusion systems. Mechanical aeration is achieved imparting mechanical energy to water in order to break it up into droplets. Oxygen transfer is enhanced by increasing the air-water interface area.
Mechanical aerator is driven by electric motors or internal combustion engines. Surface aerators are devices that break up or agitate the water surface such that larger oxygen transfer rates are achieved. Water drawn into the vertical tube by a propeller, is pumped upward, deflected radially, and sprayed in an umbrella pattern over the water surface Fig.
Boyd and Martinson stated that in comparison tests, spray type-surface aerator transferred 1. A vertical pump aerator consists of a submersible, electric motor with an impeller attached to its shaft. The motor is suspended by floats, and the impeller pushes water into the air to apply the aeration.
