BioNovations' TS1-1000 Live Seafood Holding System is designed for wholesalers, retailers, fish markets, hotels, restaurants, and smaller wholesales operators that require live seafood holding capacities beyond regular display tanks. It is an ideal system for medium volumes of live seafood.


  • The TS1-1000 configuration is stacked one (1) tank wide and two (2) tanks high. All mechanical filtration, aeration, refrigeration, bio-conversion and are built into the system. The insulated Traystor® II holding tanks, optional insulated cover and insulated front insert make this system very energy efficient. A structural spacer is used to provide access between the tanks when stacked two (2) high.
  • The TS1-1000 is self-regulating for water level. As a result, the Traystor® II holding tanks and biological converter cannot be pumped dry.
  • The TS1-1000 is equipped with a condensing unit sized for each customer's requirements. The condensing unit is equipped with a titanium evaporator coil and an electronic temperature controller for accurate water temperature control. Combined heating/ cooling systems are available for warm water species. The system is equipped with a pump, manufactured from thermoplastic glass filled resin, sized for the system's flow requirements and compatible with seawater.
  • The TS1-1000 can easily hold up to 1000 lb/ 455 kg of live seafood, and like all of our systems, it can be connected to optional retail display cases.
  • The TS1-1000 systems come with optional alarm systems and water quality monitoring controllers.
