    Circular tanks are widely used in aquaculture. They have the advantage of being self-cleaning, which is important for all forms of aquaculture. They also have a constant and non-ending flow throughout the tank, which is a particular advantage for active swimming fish species. The use of circular tanks in sole production is not widely known. Sole is not an active swimming species; therefore a non-ending flow is probably not necessary. However, the self-cleaning aspect of circular tanks is still a great advantage. Therefore the objective of this study was to optimize the production of sole in circular tanks.
