Fishing pool 

The fishing pool is exploited by Max Dyckerhoff, a pioneer in fish farming on the island. The shades are half composed of photovoltaic panels (1.5 MWp) and half of transparent panels, granting the pools both shadow and the necessary sunlight.  

These structures allow a better development of the fishes: they are now protected from predators, the water temperature is better regulated, easing the management of water cycle and water oxygenation. This has reduced the fish death rate by 40%. This also give better work conditions to the fish farmers. They are protected from the sunlight and have more flexible fishing hours (previously only early morning).

Max Dyckerhoff’s tilapia production is mostly dedicated to the local market, and therefore boosts the local economy and supports the development of short supply chain.
