PROTECT YOUR RACEWAY FARM AND FISH HATCHERY PONDS WITH FABRIC STRUCTURES
Whether you have a small raceway system with a few species of fish, or a thriving commercial fish farming business, WeatherPort® offers superior protection. When your livelihood is at stake, you don’t want to use flimsy covers that expose your fish to predators, or fail and cause temperature fluctuations, chemical imbalances, as well as exposure to sunlight and weather – all factors that can decrease the maximum load of fish being cultured in your raceway or fish hatchery pond.
WeatherPort fabric structures are not the typical hoop house made of bent PVC pipe and covered with a thin layer of plastic. Our structures are engineered to withstand wind and snow loads specific to the location of your fish hatchery, are completely customizable, and are unparalleled in quality, reliability, and designed to provide a great return on investment.
We offer a variety of pre-designed options, which can be tailored to your specific aquaculture system requirements including: shape, size, design, climate control, and a variety of other features – all designed to assist governments, agencies like the Department of Fisheries, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Services, universities, as well as conservation services convert open ponds and open raceways to covered or enclosed systems and follow aquaculture best management practices (BMP).
WEATHERPROOF, DURABLE, AND CUSTOMIZABLE RACEWAY AND POND ENCLOSURES
WeatherPort raceway covers and fish hatchery pond enclosures are made to last. Our engineers have spent 50 years perfecting the design of our fabric building systems to be the most durable and reliable. We use high strength tensioned membranes that are long-lasting and resistant to weather and prolonged UV exposure. Our engineered fabric structures employ a heavy-duty galvanized steel or lightweight aluminum frame system to create a strong and sturdy building for any raceway system or hatchery pond. By design, our building systems can be installed and left in place as a permanent enclosure, or easily setup and taken down seasonally. The portability of our engineered fabric structures is unmatched.
For fish hatcheries operating salt-water raceways or ponds, or for the storage of corrosive chemicals – we can provide powder-coated frame systems. Available in a large selection of colors, our powder-coated frames will not only resist corrosion but can be made to aesthetically blend in or stand out depending on your design criteria.
We also offer a large selection of proprietary insulation systems, designed to increase energy efficiency as well as temperature control in hot and cold climates, protecting the

ECO-FRIENDLY AND EFFICIENT RACEWAY COVERS AND FISH HATCHERIES
WeatherPort building solutions are long-lasting and provide an incredibly value. Gain peace of mind knowing you are making an eco-friendly and energy-efficient choice when investing in a WeatherPort raceway cover or fish hatchery pond enclosure.
On average, our structures provide decades worth of use, even in harsh climates where high winds, heavy snow loads, extreme temperatures and solar loads render other building solutions useless. This durability and longevity is due to the high-strength design of our tensioned fabric membranes, as well as the quality and engineering of our framing materials.
When equipped with our proprietary insulation packages, a WeatherPort fabric structure is designed to keep the heat or air-conditioning in, while reflecting unwanted UV rays and proofing against inclement weather. Our insulation systems, capable of meeting the requirement of any R-value, provides an energy-efficient solution in a lower volume of material compared to typical fiberglass insulation products. Our proprietary insulation packages are designed to reduce the energy required of an HVAC system to heat or cool the environment around your hatchery ponds.
In addition to producing long-lasting building solutions, WeatherPort also employs lean manufacturing processes to reduce waste. All extra materials created in the production of your building system are recycled to reduce waste.
