Cleaning in aquaculture

Challenges: To enable good and stable growth throughout the life cycle for a given generation.

Aquatiq® Chemistry has the solutions that ensure optimal production:

  • Cleaning of heat exchangers
  • Cleaning and disinfection of vessels, equipment and production facilities
  • Daily cleaning and disinfection of automated vaccine equipment
  • Proven and well-documented CIP solutions

We also offer solutions that satisfy the authorities’ requirements and standards (eg: Global GAP).


  • Alkaline CIP
  • Alkaline Foam
  • Disinfection
  • Filter / Membrane – cleaning
  • Chloral alkaline CIP
  • Chloral Alkaline Foam
  • Smokeoven cleaner
  • Foam cushioning
  • Special food
  • Acid CIP
  • Acid Foam
  • Surface cleaning

Proper alkaline products with optimal surfactants for removing fat and proteins from fish and fish waste, is the solution for good cleaning of production equipment. The products are suitable for cleaning hatcheries, equipment for dead fish treatment, cyclones, tanks, work vessels, rafts, floors etc.

Furthermore, Aquatiq® offers effective alkaline products that are gentle on aluminum, with a strong foam that dries slowly. This gives the operator more time for other tasks, and slow drying also gives the product a longer working time on the surface. It also works well for cleaning, for example, work vessels, vessels and hatching equipment.

Environmentally friendly disinfection for aquaculture

Aquatiq® has two approved disinfectants for aquaculture. These products contain hydrogen peroxide and peracetic acid. You only need one of these two products to keep control of bacteria, viruses and fungi in proper use after washing. The products are suitable for both surface and CIP disinfection.

In the event of a generational change at a site, it is recommended to sterilize rings and other equipment before moving to a new site or new insert. Work vessels must have safe routines for disinfection to prevent infection between localities.

CIP Cleaning

CIP means ‘Clean in Place’, where water and chemistry are circulated by pumping, to clean and disinfect pipes inside. CIP cleaning is also used on incubators to avoid disassembly of sight glass, hoses etc.

Aquatiq® Chemistry has a high level of expertise in CIP cleaning and optimizes the required amount of water and chemistry. We create procedures for the company to have the same effect every time. CIP cleaning is labor-saving and cost-effective for the breeder. In incubators you get very good results throughout the process with clean supply pipes. CIP washing and proper chemistry remove fungi, bacteria and viruses.

CIP cleaning with an acidic cleaner is effective and renews the surface of stainless steel, making it more difficult for deposits to adhere. Acids can be used on most surfaces such as PVC, PEH, PE, stainless steel and fiberglass. For shorter periods, it can also be used on aluminum, given the correct concentration. There may be some foam development, so it may be appropriate to use a silicone-based defoamer.
Aciren CIP, Aqua CIP PH (phosphoric acid). Available in packs of 20 and 200 liters.

A strong alkaline detergent is well suited for the removal of fats and proteins. There are effective means for cleaning heat exchangers, pipes and RSW units.
