Cultivation of the seaweed Ulva spp. With effluent from a shrimp Biofloc rearing system: different species and stocking density

Mateus Aranha Martins, Vitor Fernandes da Silva, Patricio René Tarapuez, Leila Hayashi, Felipe do Nascimento Vieira https://www.pesca.sp.gov.br/boletim/index.php/bip/article/view/1568/1476 Abstract This work evaluated the use of effluent from a marine shrimp biofloc rearing system to cultivate two species of the green seaweed of the genus Ulva. First, the growth of two Ulva species, U. ohnoi and U. fasciata, was evaluated. Second, the...

Nannochloropsis spp. as Feed Additive for the Pacific White Shrimp: Effect on Midgut Microbiology, Thermal Shock Resistance and Immunology

Ariane Martins Guimarães, Cristhiane Guertler, Gabriella do Vale Pereira, Jaqueline da Rosa Coelho, Priscila Costa Rezende, Renata Oselame Nóbrega, Felipe do Nascimento Vieira https://doi.org/10.1016/j.aqrep.2020.100479 Abstract The biofloc culture system (BFT) allows for the production of aquatic animals at higher stocking densities compared to conventional aquaculture systems and it has been proven to be efficient for shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei) and mullet...

Evidence of total suspended solids control by Mugil liza reared in an integrated system with pacific white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei using biofloc technology

Mariana Holanda, Gabriel Santana, Plinio Furtado, Ricardo Vieira Rodrigues, Vinícius Ronzani Cerqueira, Luís André Sampaio, Wilson Wasielesky Jr., Luis Henrique Poersch https://doi.org/10.3390/ani11010150 Abstract This work aimed to evaluate Nannochloropsis spp. as feed additive in the diet of Pacific white shrimp for their effect on midgut microbiology, thermal shock resistance and immunological parameters. Initially, the digestibility of the microalgae meal was...

Assessing the impact of bivalve aquaculture on the carbon circular economy

A.A. Alonso, X. A. Álvarez-Salgado, L. T. Antelo https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jclepro.2020.123873 Abstract Global production of shell calcium carbonate (CaCO3) from bivalve aquaculture amounts about 13.6 million metric tons per year. Shells, traditionally considered a waste of aquaculture activities, have recently acquired an interest under the current framework of zero waste circular economy. Shell CaCO3 is a sustainable biomaterial that could partly replace...
