Beyond their nutritional value, bioflocs and periphyton
are also capable to remove nitrogen, phosphorus and toxic compounds from the water (Azim & Little, 2008).
Two possible ways to increase the aquaculture yield with environmental sustainability are (1) use of underwater substrates for periphyton
and (2) correction of the C: N ratio of water (Avnimelech, 2006).
biomasses, for example, are usually found in the Ivinhema River, which carries more phosphate than the Parana River (Leandrini, Fonseca, & Rodrigues, 2008).
It includes identification keys to algae, periphyton
, protozoa, freshwater invertebrates, and plankton, and discussion of catchments and their nutrients and organic matter; the ecological development of ponds and lakes; food webs and structures in ponds; problems, such as acid rain and loss of nutrients; and future issues, such as water supply, food security, and climate change.
The GB has a dark coloration, large surface, soft texture, and high porosity, which may improve the space available for periphyton
2009) studied the effect of the addition of tilapia and substrates for periphyton
development on ecology, production and economic performance in the rates of C/N, in a freshwater prawn (Macrobrachium rosenbergii) farm.
In benthos, sometimes in periphyton
tissue for laboratory analyses and calculation of TN:TP ratios in the filamentous green algae species that dominate algal biomass in the Rio Ruidoso upstream and downstream from the WWTP.
They are characterized by a regime where short-term events capable of transporting bedload and removing periphyton
occur several times each year (Scatena & Gutpa 2012).
