Outbreak of blue-green algal blooms, with associated unsightly scum and unpleasant odor, occurs frequently in eutrophic lakes. We conducted feeding experiments to study ingestion and digestion of Microcystis aeruginosa by tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) under laboratory conditions and field testing to reduce Microcystis blooms by stocking tilapia in Lake(More)
The bacterial community structure associated with filter materials in the recirculating aquaculture system of Scortum barcoo was investigated using the 16S rRNA gene clone library method. Preliminary results showed that the clone library constructed from the initial operation condition was characterized by 31 taxa of bacteria belonging to eight phyla(More)
The purpose of this microcosm experiment was to determine whether the freshwater snail Bellamya aeruginosa affected phytoplankton community and water quality. Three treatments of different snail densities (low, medium, and high) and a control (no snails) were set up in twelve enclosures. Chlorophyll a (chl a), transparency (SD), water temperature (WT),(More)
This study was conducted to investigate ultrastructural alterations and biochemical responses in the hepatopancreas of the freshwater snail Bellamya aeruginosa after exposure to two treatments: toxic cyanobacterium (Microcystis aeruginosa) and toxic cyanobacterial cells mixed with a non-toxic green alga (Scendesmus quadricauda) for a period of 15 days of(More)
In this paper, a distributed subgradient-based algorithm is proposed for continuous-time multi-agent systems to search a feasible solution to convex inequalities. The algorithm involves each agent achieving a state constrained by its own inequalities while exchanging local information with other agents under a time-varying directed communication graph. With(More)
Experiments were carried out to investigate interspecific interactions between the rotifer Brachionus plicatilis and two harmful algal bloom (HAB) species using single and mixed culture methods. B. plicatilis populations and the growth of two algae were compared at different algal cell densities. The results demonstrate that B. plicatilis obtained(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the difference of specificity of four primers for betaproteobacterial ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (beta-AOB) 16S rDNA gene from the biofilm of closed recirculation aquaculture systems. METHODS We used 16S rDNA clone libraries to describe the beta-AOB diversity. RESULTS CTO189f/CTO654r produced the highest frequency of beta-AOB-like(More)
In this paper, a class of convex feasibility problems (CFPs) are studied for multi-agent systems through local interactions. The objective is to search a feasible solution to the convex inequalities with some set constraints in a distributed manner. The distributed control algorithms, involving subgradient and projection, are proposed for both continuousand(More)
The phytoplankton community structure is potentially influenced by both extrinsic effects originating from the surrounding environment and intrinsic effects relying on interspecific interactions between two species. However, few studies have simultaneously considered both types of effects and assessed the relative importance of these factors. In this study,(More)
