Kordon ® Breathing Bags™ are a completely new approach to the shipping of live fishes, aquatic invertebrates and aquatic plants. They provide a constant source of fresh oxygen for the breathing of aquatic life.
Kordon ® Breathing Bags™ are a completely new approach to the shipping of live fishes, as well as aquatic invertebrates and aquatic plants. The special plastic film used in the Breathing Bags allows the transfer of carbon dioxide (CO2) out of the water in the bag through the walls of the bag, and the absorption of oxygen from the atmosphere though the bag walls into the water in the bag. This provides a constant source of fresh oxygen for the breathing of the fishes and other aquatic life.
Kordon ® Breathing Bags™ represent a new approach to the problems of shipping live fishes and other aquatic animals and aquatic plants, including over long distances or for extended time periods. The product development staff at Kordon, teamed with plastics chemical engineers, have taken a technology first developed in space/military research and refined it to produce the bags being offered today.
The Breathing Bags allow the transfer of simple and complex gas molecules through the plastic wall of the bag -- carbon dioxide and oxygen in particular, as well as other gases - providing a true "breathing" bag in place of a "barrier" bag as is used in plastic polyethylene bags. As long as there is a breathable atmosphere outside the Breathing Bag, the animals inside will not run out of oxygen.
Carbon dioxide exits the bags at 4 times the rate oxygen enters the bags. Kordon has shipped around the world millions of bags (termed "Sachets") of living foods (tubifex worms, brine shrimp, daphnia, glass worms, etc.) for aquarium fishes using the Breathing Bag technology, and hundreds of thousands of Breathing Bags have been used successfully to ship fishes, coral reef animals, and aquatic plants.
