Abstract
(EN)
There is disclosed a fish farm (100, 100') having a rotatable cage net (120, 120'). A major operational cost is the maintenance of nets which have to be routinely cleared of fouling and reanti-fouled. This procedure has disadvantages, for example, it disturbs the stock, involves heavy handling, leads to abrasion of the net and involves substantial cost. Accordingly the present invention provides a fish farm (100, 100') comprising a structure (105, 105') forming a pool (110, 110') within which a cage net (120, 120') can be suspended, wherein the net (120, 120') forms a closed volume and there are provided means for rotating the net (120, 120') within the pool (110, 110') so as to orientate any selected portion of the net (120, 120') out of the water at any given time.
(FR)
On décrit une ferme piscicole (100, 100') comprenant un filet (120, 120') rotatif formant cage. L'un des coûts d'exploitation principaux réside dans l'entretien des filets desquels on doit régulièrement ôter les salissures et que l'on doit traiter à nouveau contre celles-ci. Ce processus présente des désavantages, en ce sens par exemple qu'il perturbe les poissons et qu'il occasionne une manutention lourde, une abrasion conséquente du filet ainsi qu'un coût important. La présente invention fournit donc une ferme piscicole (100, 100') comprenant une structure (105, 105') formant un bassin (110, 110') à l'intérieur duquel on peut suspendre un filet (120, 120') formant une cage à volume fermé, des moyens étant montés qui sont destinés à faire tourner le filet (120, 120') à l'intérieur du bassin (110, 110') afin d'orienter une quelconque portion choisie de celui-ci hors de l'eau à un quelconque moment voulu.
