  • Biological water treatment in aquaculture by means of “Mutag BioChip™ RAS Process“

    Aquaculture or fish farming means the artificial breeding and raising of aquatic creatures. They include fish as well as crustaceans and shellfish, which are raised and stocked under controlled conditions by using techniques and technologies offering an increased level of productivity which cannot be realized under natural conditions. Due to the increased demand for freshly caught fish and ...

  • The characteristics of immobilized granular sludge in the laboratory-scale stable partial nitrification-Anammox aquaculture water reactors

    Immobilized granular sludge is of key importance for highly effective operation of partial nitrification and anaerobic ammonium oxidation (PN-Anammox) reactors. An observation and analysis on the composition of immobilized granular sludge in each reactor was conducted by using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and fluorescence in situ hybridization. It was indicated that the diversity of ...

  • Pharmaceuticals in the environment – global occurrences and perspectives

    Pharmaceuticals are known to occur widely in the environment of industrialized countries. In developing countries more monitoring results have recently become available, but a concise picture of measured environmental concentrations (MECs) is still elusive. Through a comprehensive literature review of 1016 original publications and 150 review articles we collected MECs for human and veterinary ...

  • Modeling fish production for Southern California's petroleum platforms

    California's oil platforms are nearing the end of their productive lives, and therefore will be decommissioned in the near future. These structures have been shown to be important habitat for both settlement and growth for reef fishes. Important information on the biological effects (i.e. loss of biomass and production) of different decommissioning options has not yet been explored in detail. ...

  • CO2 Removal and Stripping Column Ventilation Rate at Bell Aquaculture

    Monitoring and controlling CO2 level in Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS) is crucial not only for fish health but it is used increasingly for efficient management. Under supervision of Steve Summerfelt, a joint project has studied costs savings with optimizing ventilation based on CO2 continuous monitoring. The CO2 probe used in that project came from ...

  • Forecasting fish biomasses, densities, productions, and bioaccumulation potentials of Mid‐Atlantic wadeable streams

    Regional fishery conditions of Mid‐Atlantic wadeable streams in the eastern United States are estimated using the BASS bioaccumulation and fish community model and data collected by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Program (EMAP). Average annual biomasses and population densities and annual productions are estimated for 352 randomly selected ...

  • Bisphenol A reduces fertilizing ability and motility by compromising mitochondrial function of sperm

    Bisphenol A acts as an endocrine disruptor, affects animal reproductive success in vivo, and affects sperm functions in vitro at environmentally relevant concentrations leading to reduction in sperm motility and fertilizing ability in fish. The effect of in vitro BPA on avian sperm functions has not been explored. We tested the effect of environmentally relevant concentrations of BPA (0, 0.18, ...

  • Animation: restoring eroded coast Java by Building with Nature

    Northern Java's coasts suffer from severe erosion. In one decade, some coastal areas have retreated by three kilometres. Developmnet of coastal infrastructure and aquaculture went hand in hand with the removal of protective mangrove forests and the disturbance of sediment flows towards the coast and floodplains. Replanting of mangroves has not been successful, as the sediment balance is too ...

  • Monitoring greenhouse gases from biofuel crops - Case study

    Global issues such as climate change and energy security have driven rapid growth in renewable energy production – wind, solar, tidal, geothermal, hydro, biofuels etc. However, logically, each of these methods should deliver a net benefit in terms of greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction, so researchers in the United States have employed portable FTIR analysers to study the GHG emissions of ...

  • We only have one Earth, so we better start taking care of it.

    Clocks are ticking, and the only planet we have to live on is changing right before our eyes. What are we going to do about it? We are all connected. Farmer or finance minister, president or plumber, we share the same home — this single, living planet. It’s the only home we have. And from my perspective it’s in dire need of attention. ...

  • Synthetic estrogen directly affects fish biomass and may indirectly disrupt aquatic food webs

    Endocrine‐disrupting chemicals are known to alter the fitness of individual organisms via changes in growth, behavior, and reproduction. It is largely unknown, however, whether these effects cascade through the food web and indirectly affect other, less sensitive organisms. The authors present results from a mesocosm experiment whereby the effects of the synthetic estrogen 17α‐ethinylestradiol ...
