Sample text

The quality of the wastes can be improved by appropriate changes in culture technologies (which will be discussed in Chapter 6) and by the addition of waste treatment facilities in the farm lay-out. But the dilution factor governed by water exchange in the receiving water has to be determined as a part of site selection. Water retention or exchange is greatly influenced by a number of hydrological and seasonal factors. If the recipient of effluents is a stream or river, variations in water level and flow rates can be highly seasonal depending on precipitation and other sources of water, such as springs and melting snow.

The design of waste treatment facilities can also be similar, even if the size often has to be different because of the volume of effluents to be treated. 3 The quality of effluent from flow-through fish farms, river water and biologically treated domestic waste water (mg l−1). 15 5–50 300 75 60 20 500 (From: Warrer-Hansen, 1982) biological filtration, chemical treatment for precipitation, mechanical filtration, and others such as ion-exchange (Warrer-Hansen, 1982). Large quantities of water are utilized in aquaculture farms and most is discharged after varying periods of retention in the farm.
