Safeguards in the Exploitation of Domestic Effluents for Aquaculture



Just as in agriculture and animal husbandry, one should consider that the primary production is always the basis of aquaculture, and that sunlight, nutrient salts, carbon dioxide, and water in liquid form are the well-known prerequisites for primary production. If one farms aquatic organisms of the first link of the food chain, the principles are virtually the same as in agriculture and horticulture. The yield per hectare will depend, in the first place, on the availability of sunlight and of nutrients. Nutrients can be administered in some form or other to raise the production.
