SummaryThe toxicological and environmental significance of N-containing effluents discharged to seawater from fish farms is difficult to establish. Environmental quality standards for N compounds inExpand
Water quality criteria for marine fisheries
Abstract This paper provides a summary of information on sea water for those engineers who have little experience of water quality but find themselves interested or involved with mariculture. As wellExpand
The effects of handling on flounder (Platichthys flesus L.) and Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.)
The effect of 9 min of net confinement on two marine teleost species, the flounder and the Atlantic salmon, was investigated in order to gauge how different species respond to the same stressExpand
Physiological responses to handling in the turbot
Turbot Scophthalmus maximus were cannulated via the afferent branchial artery and were either net-confined in sea water or in air for 9 min to monitor the stress response of a hatchery-reared marineExpand
The food and growth of 0-group flatfish on nursery grounds in the Clyde Sea Area
Abstract In early summer plaice (Pleuronectes platessa L.) in the Clyde Sea Area eat Tellina siphons and spionid palps. As they grow, they take progressively larger siphons, fragments of spionids andExpand
Incubation of salmon eggs and rearing of alevins: Natural temperature fluctuations and their influence on hatchery requirements
The eggs and alevins of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) are normally reared in Scotland using surface water in open flow systems. The literature indicated that incubation temperatures shouldExpand
The population dynamics of O-group flatfish on nursery grounds in the Clyde Sea Area
The plaice, Pleuronectes platessa L., is the most commercially important flat-fish in the Clyde Sea Area. For midsummer (1 August), population estimates of 10–20 million O-group fish were derived.Expand
A Review of the Design and Performance of Tanks Relevant to Flatfish Culture
Abstract The most promising designs of tanks suitable for turbot (Scophthalmus maximus) culture are reviewed and relevant biological, hydrodynamic and water quality criteria are identified. DesignsExpand
A method for the quantification and optimization of hydrodynamics in culture tanks
A method was developed to quantify hydrodynamic mixing parameters, and to optimize the physical environmental conditions, in culture tanks. Improved mixing will result in better tank water quality,Expand
