Engineering Aspects of Recirculating Aquaculture Systems
Abstract:Intensive recirculating aquaculture systems utilizing water recirculation and pure oxygen injection are examined in terms of the individual unit processes that are required to handle the wastes generated by fish at stocking densities as high as 120‐150 kg/m3. These unit processes include solid waste removal, nitrification of ammonia and nitrite, aeration or oxygenation, carbon dioxide removal, and control and monitoring systems. Overall system integration is reviewed and an example of a research/commercial intensive recirculating system is presented.
