In OFFSHORE AQUACULTURE submerged fish farming cages application is increasing because of the problems concerning the installation sites. Often submitted to rough weather conditions. Feeding is one of the main problems in OFF-SHORE AQUACULTURE, above all where submerged fish farming cages are installed because of the long time procedure involved and the skilled personnel required to do k that increase the accident risks and the management costs.
Manual feeding procedure is traditionally used in OFFSHORE AQUACULTURE with submerged fish farming cages where, sometimes, feeding is done from the sea-surface without moving the submerged cages; in this case nobody knows how and if the fish is eating.
An automatic and remote controlled feeder for submerged cages could really help technically and economically the fish farmers in OFFSHORE AQUACULTURE. It could succeed in reducing the personnel interventions frequency for feeding operations and the risks related to them.
