Aquaflex 250 Pen

The proven and highly successful Aquaflex 250 system covers pen sizes from 35-80m circumference and utilises 250mm diameter flotation pipes.

Incredibly robust and featuring a modular design, Aquaflex pens have been engineered to give farmers peace of mind so they can concentrate on rearing quality fish.

Aquaflex is the ideal system for inshore sea farms, freshwater farms, pilot farms and for rearing juvenile stock.
