  • A novel growth method for diatom algae in aquaculture waste water for natural food development and nutrient removal

    Diatom algae are known to play an important role as primary producers in many diverse ecosystems, including artificial aquaculture ponds where they also aid in maintaining water quality by consuming excess nutrients. But factors influencing their growth are still poorly understood. In the present study the effect of micronutrients, N:P ratio and silica concentration on benthic diatom Synedra ...

  • Fishing for a Solution

    As writer Rowan Jacobsen explores in our recent feature “Has Meat Met Its Match?,” animal agriculture’s hefty environmental footprint is creating interest in exploring ways to meet humans’ growing appetite for animal protein that extend beyond beef, chicken and pork. In some places, that exploration is going underwater. Aquaculture, or fish farming, is the fastest growing ...

  • Bacillus probiotics for lakes and ponds organic degradation

    Probiotics used in the aqua environment is an increasing attempt to enhance water and pond/lake soil quality. Probiotics usually have a microbial and plant origin. The most commonly known probiotics belong to bacteria. You may be surprised to learn that bacillus probiotics are used as soil and water quality enhancer in ponds. However, aquaculture is a fast-growing industry to fulfill the demand ...

  • 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 level is ...

  • Anaerobic biodegradability of fish remains: experimental investigation and parameter estimation

    The generation of organic waste associated with aquaculture fish processing has increased significantly in recent decades. The objective of this study is to evaluate the anaerobic biodegradability of several fish processing fractions, as well as water treatment sludge, for tilapia and sturgeon species cultured in recirculated aquaculture systems. After substrate characterization, the ultimate ...

  • Desert Fish Farming & Waste Management

    Fish Waste Disposal In Desert Farming When you think about desert farming, desert fish farming probably isn’t an activity that springs to mind. Desert farming conjures ideas of livestock grazing across dry, arid landscapes, or rows and rows of hardy, sun-worshipping crops. And yet, desert fishing is becoming increasingly popular in North Africa and the Middle East, particularly in ...
