  • The Hidden Cost of Shrimp Fishing

    While the practice of land-based shrimp farming has its own environmental set backs, their collective impact seems to pale in comparison to the catastrophic destruction caused by the most widely used wild shrimp fishing technique – trawling. Often referred to as “bulldozing the sea,” shrimp trawling works by taking a large weight net and dragging it across the sea ...

  • Abagold extends their aquaculture facilities - Case Study

    Abagold Ltd, the largest cultivator of farmed Abalone in South Africa, needed to extend their aquaculture facilities in Hermanus, near Cape Town in South Africa. They knew it would be a challenge, as they need to continuously pump large volumes of turbulent seawater. They required high efficiency and reliability, combined with easy maintenance, all fitting into an existing pump station. This task ...

  • The benefit of electrocoagulation in water treatment for agriculture and aquaculture

    Now a day’s one of the most intensive and the best field due to which the entire human kind can survive is the field of agriculture and aquaculture. The agriculture industry is a water requirement industry and is in a need of constant free contaminant water supply and so is in fish cultivation. And in order to provide this contaminant free water supply it requires a large scale of water ...

  • The Scoop on Shellfish Aquaculture

    The centerpiece of many culinary gurus''stunning' dishes, a shellfish’s journey often begins on a farm. Found on the coastal shores or in freshwater lakes, you’ll discover suspended shellfish aquaculture systems. Fixed on ropes, plastic trays or in mesh bags, these shelled, aquatic invertebrates are raised in a controlled environment ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Aquaculture induced erosion of tropical coastlines throws coastal communities back into poverty

    Shallow tropical coastlines harbour unique mangrove ecosystems, which support livelihoods and provide a natural barrier against coastal flooding. Non-sustainable land-use practices, such as large-scale clear cutting of mangroves for aquaculture, ground water withdrawal and alteration of river flows, result in rapid subsidence. The collapse of aquaculture production, due to pollution and disease, ...

  • Ecological impacts of fluridone and copper sulphate in catfish aquaculture ponds

    Fluridone and copper sulphate are often used for controlling macrophytes and algae in aquaculture ponds. The present study examined the ecological effects of these chemicals on macrophyte, phytoplankton, and zooplankton biomass, plankton community structure, water quality parameters, and fish survival and yield in catfish culture ponds using a randomized complete block design. The estimated ...

  • Effects of different management regimes on mangrove ecosystem services in Java, Indonesia

    This new report, published by Wageningen University and Wetlands International, seeks to fill a significant gap in mangrove ecosystem service estimates. While several studies have sought to measure and value the ecosystem services provided by mangrove ecosystems in general, this new piece of research has for the first time conducted separate evaluations for zones that are characterised by ...

  • Ghana Fish Farming and Fish Feed Production

    There are two main ways to obtain feed for fish farming in Ghana: locally produced feed and imported feed. However, fish feeds locally produced are in bad quality as most of them are not extruded. Imported feed is appropriately 30% more expensive than locally produced. So importation is not a quick fix. On average the costs for Tilapia farming in Ghana consist of 70% of the feed cost. Therefore, ...

  • 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 ...

  • Towards climate-responsible peatlands management

    Peatlands are lands with a naturally accumulated peat layer at their surface. They are found all over the world and come in many forms, display many different characteristics and are used in many different ways. Even though peatlands extend over a relatively small portion of the earth’s land surface, they hold a large pool of carbon. There is no universal definition of peatlands. For the ...

  • Building with Nature Documentary

    Indonesian coasts suffer from erosion, caused by sea level rise, mangrove conversion for aquaculture and groundwater extraction. In some places kilometres of land are lost and this will exacerbate with climate change. Hard structures like sea walls are ineffective in mud-coasts, expensive and unable to adapt to climate change. Furthermore, they fail to provide the economic, environmental and ...
