INVASIVE SPECIES

Consultancy and diagnosis of problems with invasive species

In Cyanowater we work solving problems with invasive species such as aquatic plants, algae and fish that affect the life and economy of cities, towns, ports and companies such as Nuclear, Hydroelectric and Solar Thermal Power Plants.

Our machines are capable of harvesting surface and bottom algae and all kinds of reeds and water reeds.

Some of the species that we control

Water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes)

Water hyacinth is one of the most invasive aquatic plants known, and forms a tapestry on the surface that prevents the passage of light and the exchange of oxygen because it releases organic matter and it consumes oxygen when it decomposes.

It can double its mass in two weeks with the right conditions and blocks channels, clogs pipes, causes problems in hydroelectric plants and in riverbeds.

Azolla (Azollaceae) or water fern

The Azolla has small leaves and short roots, and its color oscillates between red and purple in full sun and pale green to bluish green in the shade and also prevents the light from penetrating the water and in this way other underwater species die, and, being a species of small size, it is transported by birds and animals that contaminate other bodies of water.

Asian carp     (Cyprinus carpio)

Asian carp is on the list of invasive species and because of their high reproductive rate (an adult carp can lay 30,000 eggs) displaces other species of native fish and sometimes also comes to affect bird species since it impedes the nesting.
