The Like-A-Fish Corporate Mission is to become the leading
provider of revolutionary air supply systems that are able to
extract air from water, for both the leisure and the professional
scuba diving industries, as well as for submarines and underwater
Like-A-Fish Technologies was founded in 2001 in order to develop
and provide a revolutionary tankless diving gear that is able to extract air
from water. The company holds patents in Europe and
in the U.S.A.
Like-A-Fish Technologies revolutionizes diving
technology and marks a breakthrough in the history of diving. The
company introduces for the first time in history scuba equipment
that extracts air from water.
Longer Bottom Time
Air supply is not restricted to amount of air that can be
contained in one tank, only on amount of batteries taken.
No Need for Refills
No need to refill air tanks with diving gas
(save money and dependence on dive centers)
Higher Safety & Less Stop Stations
The composition of the air that is extracted from water is
enriched with 34% Oxygen (similar to Nitrox), which minimizes the
amount of Nitrogen that is inhaled during a dive and thus adds to
the safety of a dive.
With conventional SCUBA gear, a diver's buoyancy changes
throughout the dive, as he uses (and thus loses) approximately 4 Kg
worth of air. This is not the case with the Company's gear.
Since Ancient times man has sought ways to go below the sea
level. Aristotle describes the first depictions of underwater
devices. The devices Aristotle described resembled a jar turned
upside down, in which a diver thrust his head. During his
descent to the sea floor, the diver breathed the air that remained
inside the jar. In the last 60 years, the technologies for
underwater breathing have progressed rapidly.
Despite the enormous developments in diving
technologies, the essence of diving technologies has never
Both in the times of Aristotle and nowadays the essence of
underwater breathing is to enclose air in a vessel. The air enclosed
in the vessel then serves as the air supply for the diver. This
technique has several disadvantages. The most obvious disadvantage
is the limited air supply and thus the limited bottom time of the
The system can work as a replacement of common 'open diving
systems'. However, because of large air and water requirements, the
system is best suited for 'semi-closed systems', also known as
Submarines and underwater habitats are private cases of
rebreather uses, and where use of the new system would have enormous
benefits. Many operations that are now considered to be 'impossible'
become within reach when the underwater time of sub sea vehicles
becomes virtually unlimited.
The arrival of the new 'Air Independent Propulsion' (AIP) systems
in conventional submarines means that the only reason for the
submarine to surface every few days will be to replenish the air
supply for the crew. The time between resurfaces can be greatly
extended when using the new system.
Besides supplying Oxygen for breathing, other uses can be found
for utilizing presence of air and Oxygen under the sea.
