Rapid growth in greenhouse gas emissions from the adoption of industrial-scale aquaculture

It is proposed that greater adoption of aerated systems is urgently required to address globally significant rises in CH4 emissions from the conversion of paddy fields to aquaculture, which can be significantly reduced by water aeration.

Review of Technologies for the Recovery of Phosphorus from Waste Streams

Phosphorus is essential to the growth of living organisms, and, therefore, its pres ence is considered vital for all forms of life. Research shows that phosphate rock reserves are reducing. Phosphate

Improved Efficiency of P Fertilization with Bio and Organic additives on Growth, Seed Quality and Soybean Yield

Two field experiments were conducted at Experimental Farm of Tag El-Ezz, Agricultural Research Station, Dakahlia Governorate, Egypt, during two successive summer seasons of 2019 and 2020 to study the

Upcycling Phosphorus Recovered from Anaerobically Digested Dairy Manure to Support Production of Vegetables and Flowers

Dissolved air flotation (DAF) separates phosphorus (P)-rich fine solids from anaerobically digested dairy manure, creating opportunities to export surplus P to the marketplace as a bagged plant food

Growth and Yield of Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus (L.) Moench) Under the Influence of Different Organic Fertilizers

The desire for organic food products by consumers is on the increase due to its health benefits despite the higher cost of such food products. Therefore at the Teaching and Research Farm of the Ekiti



Practical Aspects of Chemistry in Pond Aquaculture

Abstract Relationships among liming, fertilization, water and soil chemistry, phytoplankton response, and aquatic animal production are still poorly understood. There is considerable confusion about

Review of Nutrient Management in Freshwater Polyculture

A significant interaction was evident with time between water quality variables such as pH and alkalinity, and other factors, including manure type and fish species composition, which was reflected in the difference between pig and cow manure treatments.

C. C. Mischke (ed): Aquaculture pond fertilization: impacts of nutrient input on production

Aquaculture Pond Fertilization is a book to provide readers with an introduction to the theoretical background of the fertilization of aquaculture ponds and then to show how the concepts can be applied to pond management and the information used to increase the production of pond-farmed finfish.

Effects of Agricultural Limestone on Water Chemistry, Phytoplankton Productivity, and Fish Production in Soft Water Ponds

Abstract Five ponds treated with agricultural limestone and five control ponds were stocked with Tilapia aurea and fertilized every 2 weeks with ammonium nitrate and triple superphosphate. Initially,

Effect of organic fertilizer on heterotrophs and autotrophs: implications for water quality management

Alfalfa meal as a source of organic fertilizer was used in a series of pond, enclosure and laboratory experiments to determine its effect on bacteria, algae and water quality. Bacteria and flagellate

Supplemental Feeding of Tilapia in Fertilized Ponds

Combinations of feed and fertilizer were most efficient in growing tilapia to large size compared to complete feeding or fertilizing alone, and net yield did not differ significantly among treatments, due to variation in survival.


Fertilization of fishponds with excessive amounts of fertilizers increases production in the upper layers of the water where favorable light conditions exist, but decreases production inThe lower layers, where overshading by the plankton causes decreased light penetration, and may cause a lowering of production per unit area.

Effect of organic fertilizer and formulated feed in pond culture of the freshwater prawn, Macrobrachium rosenbergii (de Man): pond productivity

Water chemistry data indicated that all ponds were eutrophic, and macrobenthos appeared to limit prawn growth after 1 month of culture, and simple nutrient mass-balance equations indicated that the losses of nitrogen, phosphorus and carbon from the treatments receiving feed were not dissimilar to previously reported values in finfish culture.
