Fish that migrate can also be a host for transporting microorganisms up rivers, meaning that short circuiting can also occur here. Migration obstructions in the river may be a solution. Moving aquatic organisms from one farm to another may, via the water used for transport, bring new microorganisms to the recipient farm. The result can be an outbreak of disease in the fish on the recipient farm. Some wild stocks may, through natural evolution, have developed natural immunity against some pathogenic microorganisms while others may represent a large threat.

This principle may be used to pump water, add air (aeration) and for fish transport. An endless screw pump is based on another principle; among other uses, such pumps are employed for sludge. For aquaculture facilities there is a need to pump a large amount of water with a relatively small lift height. Centrifugal pumps or propeller pumps are the most suitable and most commonly used. 4. 2 Some definitions Pump height When water is lifted from one level to another the height difference is called the static lift height.

Dry placed pumps may also be made self-suctioning by use of a specially designed impeller. Dry placed pumps are normally bolted to a rack that is fixed to the floor. In a submerged pump the motor and the pump chamber are usually built together and enclosed in one unit which is lowered into the water. As for dry placed pumps, it is important to have a good seal between the pump chamber and the motor. The whole must be watertight, to prevent water from entering the motor. The motor is cooled by the ­surrounding water and the casing can be equipped with cooling ribs to facilitate this.
