Israel’s BioFishency create RAS advancements


BioFishency’s cost-effective, all-in-one water treatment system for land-based aquaculture is a fraction of the cost of high-end water treatment systems.

The system requires minimal infrastructure and expertise. It enhances water conditions, enabling more feed for increasing fish production with minimal investment.

  • 95% reduction in water use (intensive tanks)
  • 2-5 fold increase in yields (extensive ponds)
  • 2x nitrification (ammonia removal) for improved water quality
  • Relatively low energy consumption
  • Easy to install (plug-and-play installation); no special infrastructure required
  • Small footprint, low maintenance

The proprietary substrate used in the system can be sold as a stand-alone product for a range of water treatment applications.

BioFishency: Advancements in RAS

In 2018, BioFishency will begin testing eFishe, an electrochemical-based technology for a new product line of filtration systems. The first application of eFishe will involve transporting live fish/crustaceans. The advantages of this new technology —

  • Overcomes many disadvantages of current recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS)
  • Suitable for warm or cold water; freshwater or seawater
  • Produces by-product that disinfects the water
  • Quick on/off


  • BioFishency aquaculture system in operation at the Company’s pilot site.
  • The BioFishency aquaculture system in operation at the Company’s pilot site.

Installations: BioFishency units operational in China, Indonesia, Congo, Bangladesh, India, Singapore, Israel, and others

Distribution agreements: Bangladesh, India, Taiwan, China; cooperation with several strategic partners

Recent Developments

  • November 2018: 1st place, Fishtech, China
  • April 2018: Completed $800,000 in sales in Q1 2018
  • Signed term sheet to raise $1.5 million from a strategic and private investor
  • Signed term sheet with the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology to license a new technology that will enable growing fish in any temperature (cold, warm) and water type (fresh, sea); will significantly improve the traditional recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS); first application will be for the transportation of live fish, with the potential for increasing the number of fish and enabling longer transport periods
