It is both the physical environment and the medium for breathing, communicating, and feeding. In terms of the physical environment for Arctic charr, tank shape, water depth, and current speed are secondary to the ﬂow of water through the ﬁsh-rearing system. A number of water ﬂow systems are used in Arctic charr culture, ranging from single-pass use of water to recirculation of over 90% of the incoming water (see Fig. 1). Single-pass use of water is the least complex and easiest to manage as water ﬂows through the tank environment once, then leaves the facility and returns to wild waters.
A. oquassa, and S. a. taranetzi, which in aquaculture circles are known respectively as European charr, Canadian High Arctic charr, Sunapee charr, and Kamchatka charr (Fig. 1).
