Aquacultural engineering

Aquacultural engineering is a multi-disciplinary field of engineering that aims to solve environmental problems in aquatic vertebrate , invertebrates , and algae . [1] Common aquaculture systems including optimization of cages, ponds , and recirculating systems. [2] The design and management of these systems is based on their production goals and the economics of farming. [3] Continue reading “Aquacultural engineering”

Antimicrobials in aquaculture

Antimicrobials destroy bacteria , viruses , fungi , algae , and other microbes . The cells of bacteria ( prokaryotes ), such as salmonella , differ from those of higher – level organisms ( eukaryotes ), such as fish. AntibioticsThe invention of the present invention relates to inhibiting the growth of pathogenic bacteria while exploiting the differences between prokaryotes and eukaryotes in order to make them relatively harmless in higher-level organisms. Antibiotics are made to act in one of three ways by disrupting cell membranes of bacteria, by impeding DNA or protein synthesis, or by hampering the activity of certain unique enzymes to bacteria. [1] Continue reading “Antimicrobials in aquaculture”

Algae Scrubber

An algae scrubber is a water filtering device (not to be confused with a scrubber pad used to clean glass) qui uses light to grow algae ; In this process, undesirable chemicals are removed from the water. [1] Algae scrubbers allow saltwater and freshwater aquarium and pond hobbyists to operate their tanks the way that oceans and lakes operate by using natural filtration in the form of primary production .
