Gentle, efficient and precise fish handling solutions from VAKI


VAKI pumps, graders and counters protect your investment during handling operations with the company’s proven technology and exceptional support.

MSD Animal Health – VAKI’s parent company – helps aquaculture producers and conservationists cultivate and maintain healthy and sustainable aquatic ecosystems. Its industry-leading biopharmaceutical and technology solutions monitor for insight, optimise with precision, and benchmark for performance.

VAKI Fish Pumps are capable of reducing operating costs and dramatically improving efficiency. Precisely manufactured from the highest-quality materials, they are available in three sizes – 6″, 8″ and 10″ – and in two model types, a Basic or Smart Pump. For many years, aquaculturists around the world have utilised the robust, proven performance of VAKI Fish Pumps to move salmon, trout, char, tilapia, hybrid striped bass, mackerel, anchovy, yellowtail, shrimp, and many other species.

The Smart Graders deliver accurate fish grading while minimising the impact on your fish as they pass through the outlets. The dewatering unit distributes the fish evenly over the width of the grader, so all grading tracks are used effectively.

VAKI has an extensive range of counters with the best available technology solutions and is highly innovative in its use of a scanning camera and computer vision. Fish flow gently in water through the scanning area where all the images are recorded. Custom software is used to analyse and count each image. Even at maximum capacity, the counters are extremely accurate – over 99%. The main advantages are precision, speed, and accuracy verification, with fish in water at all times.
