  • Model of an aquaponic system for minimised water, energy and nitrogen requirements

    Water and nutrient savings can be established by coupling water streams between interacting processes. Wastewater from production processes contains nutrients like nitrogen (N), which can and should be recycled in order to meet future regulatory discharge demands. Optimisation of interacting water systems is a complex task. An effective way of understanding, analysing and optimising such ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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, ...

  • Cultivation of microalgae (Oscillatoria okeni and Chlorella vulgaris) using tilapia-pond effluent and a comparison of their biomass removal efficiency

    The uptake of dissolved nutrients by microalgae is the primary way to remove nitrogen in aquaculture systems. Many authors have studied the use of microalgae to treat wastewater from aquaculture. However, excessive microalgae accumulation may cause high levels of organic matter and suspended solids in the final effluent. Thus, an efficient way to remove excess algae is needed in wastewater ...

  • Protective role of dietary N‐acetylcysteine on the oxidative stress induced by cylindrospermopsin in tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus)

    Cylindrospermopsin (CYN) is a toxin produced by various cyanobacteria species. Fish can be exposed to this cyanotoxin in their natural environments and in aquaculture ponds, and toxic effects can be derived. The present study investigated the effects of dietary N‐acetylcysteine (NAC) on the oxidative stress induced by pure CYN and CYN from lyophilized cells of Aphanizomenon ovalisporum in tilapia ...
