A potential problem with raceways is the deterioration of water quality along their length. Tanks are most commonly used for culturing the early developmental stages of fish, bivalves and crustaceans, and for culturing high-value fish species. Raceways are also used for culturing high-value fish. As with ponds, there is a variety of tank systems ranging from flowthrough systems, in which the tank system is simply a confinement for the animals, to recirculating tank systems, in which the water is used, treated and re-used while maintaining a high density of animals.
