The most promising designs of tanks suitable for turbot (Scophthalmus maximus) culture are reviewed and relevant biological, hydrodynamic and water quality criteria are identified. Designs used for a range of other species are included where appropriate, because they have contributed to the development of tank technology. Large, carefully managed, shallow, circular tanks, with multiple inlets, a slightly sloping bottom and an even flow distribution, appear in the literature, to be most suitable. © 1992.
