  • Case study - Fitmar, Mexico

    Coming from a long line of professional fisherman, the Fitmar family business made a switch from fishery to aquaculture. Seeing aquaculture as a more future proof way of supplying seafood to the local market, this was a very deliberate choice. In order to establish a professional and economically viable model, Fitmar decided to invest a lot of time and effort in optimized hatchery and nursery ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Benzoylurea pesticides used as veterinary medicines in aquaculture: Risks and developmental effects on non‐target crustaceans

    Diflubenzuron and teflubenzuron are benzoylureas that are used in aquaculture to control sea lice. Flubenzurons have low toxicity to many marine species such as fish and algae, but by their nature are likely to have significant adverse effects on non‐target species such as crustaceans and amphipods. Although the exact mechanism of toxicity is not known, these compounds are thought to inhibit ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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. ...

  • Climate helps to halve world wildlife in 40 years

    Human pressure has halved the numbers of many of the Earth’s wild creatures in just four decades, the Worldwide Fund for Nature says. While the main recorded threat to biodiversity comes from habitat loss and degradation, driven by unsustainable human consumption, it found, ...

  • Phosphatase activity and specific methanogenic activity in an anaerobic reactor treating sludge from a brackish recirculation aquaculture system

    Anaerobic treatment of high salinity sludge from marine/brackish recirculation aquaculture systems is potentially limited by inhibition of enzymatic activities and cell lysis resulting from high osmotic pressures. To further address these limitations the following investigations were conducted: effect of salinity on phosphatase activity (PA), soluble microbial products (SMP) production, and ...

  • Hexabromocyclododecane in consumer fish from South China: Implications for human exposure via dietary intake

    Levels of hexabromocyclododecane (HBCD) were determined in 12 consumer fish species from South China. The concentrations of the sum of HBCD diastereoisomers (ΣHBCD) ranged from nondetectable to 194 pg/g wet weight, with a detectable frequency of 70%. This was at the low end of the concentration range globally observed. Carnivorous fish species contained higher HBCD concentrations than herbivorous ...

  • Open sea-based Aquaculture case study

    Salmon farming is a multi-billion dollar global industry facing considerable difficulties posed by growing pressure from environmental regulatory bodies. Because marine organisms grow on and “foul” synthetic nets, oxygen available to fish is reduced and infectious diseases and parasites can spread among the fish. A test to study the reduction of fouling formation on netting of fish ...

  • Performance of an in-situ rotating biological contactor in a recirculating aquaculture system

    The start-up and activation of a nitrifying rotating biological contactor (RBC) and its performance inside a culture tank of rainbow trout were studied. First, in a lab-scale operation, the system was fed with a synthetic medium containing a high ammonia concentration (567 mg NH4+-N L−1) and operated at a high hydraulic retention time (HRT) (6.5 days) to minimize the wash-out of the biomass and ...
