Aquaculture Pond Liners - Why EPDM is the Best Material

A durable and reliable pond liner is important in the aquaculture industry. When water is your livelihood, ensuring your pond is secure and waterproof is vital. At Aquascape Australia, we believe EPDM makes for the best aquaculture pond liners.

What is Aquaculture?

Aquaculture refers to the practice of rearing, breeding, growing, or harvesting organisms that exist in water environments. This can be plants, algae, fish, shellfish, or other aquatic organisms. This farming practice is a fast-growing food sector. Aquaculture can be performed in saltwater, freshwater, or within rivers.

Why is Aquaculture Important?Aquaculture produces food for human consumption. The process can be used to breed endangered or threatened species, and tends to be a sustainable, efficient, and environmentally responsible method of farming.

What is the Best Aquaculture Pond Liner?

A strong pond membrane is an important aquaculture material. We believe EPDM pond liner is the best membrane for aquaculture. Some of the pros of EPDM pond liner include:

  • Tough and durable: EPDM is incredibly durable rubber, meaning it can keep your pond waterproof and secure for many years.
  • Non-toxic: This material is non-toxic, making it ideal for fish and edible plant ponds.
  • Puncture-resistant: The strength of this type of liner means it is resistant to puncturing from the course ground below it or sharp rocks.
  • Flexibility: EPDM rubber is very flexible, and can be gently molded to fit a range of different-sized spaces.
  • UV-resistant: The UV-resistance of EPDM makes it ideally suited for Australian aquaculture ponds.
