Micro bubble aeration system for nursery pond of shrimp aquaculture in Malaysia under energy, water quality and biofloc circulation constraints

Project: Research

Description

This project proposes the adoption of micro-bubble aeration technologies as a potential new direction for shrimp aquaculture, for the benefit of shrimp farmers in Malaysia and the government agencies which oversee their industry. The project seeks to harness efficient new technologies, and help to reduce the cost and environmental impact of shrimp farming to place the industry on a more sustainable footing both economically and environmentally.

The aim of this project is to reduce the amount of water required for shrimp aquaculture by increasing the production per unit volume of water, and by improving water cleanliness (reducing levels of effluent and the cost of effluent treatment). An assessment will be made of whether energy requirements reduce as a result.
