  • Simulations of nutrient emissions from a net cage aquaculture system in a Brazilian bay

    Hydrodynamics and transport simulations were conducted with the modeling software TELEMAC-2D on Icó-Mandantes bay, a branch of the Itaparica reservoir. The bay has a maximal operational water level amplitude of 5 m and is suffering from eutrophication and algae bloom. Therefore, we investigated low and high water level scenarios with two different high resolution meshes, with the purpose to ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Measurement of the amount of DissolvedOxygen

    Dissolved Oxygen (DO) is the term used for the measurement of the amount of oxygen dissolved in a unit volume of water. In water quality applications, such as aquaculture (including fish farming) and waste water treatment, the level of DO must be kept high. For aquaculture if the DO level falls too low the fish will suffocate. In sewage treatment, bacteria decompose the solids. If the DO ...
