Newport Aquarium's Rare Sharks Benefit from Continuous Water Quality Monitoring

Newport Aquarium's Rare Sharks Benefit from Continuous Water Quality Monitoring | Aquaculture | Scoop.it
The Newport Aquarium was founded in May of 1999. They have 137 aquatic tanks, 90 of them are exhibits for the public. And the largest tank is the shark tank, the surrounded by sharks exhibit. It is a 385,000 gallon saltwater tank. They're using the YSI 5200A on this system to keep continuous water quality monitoring for two reasons. One, for us to keep a good data log of what's going on in the system. As well as to educate our public that get to come behind the scenes and see this.

Nitrate Levels in Aquaculture May Be More Dangerous Than You Think

Nitrate Levels in Aquaculture May Be More Dangerous Than You Think | Aquaculture | Scoop.it

Modest levels of nitrate nitrogen – in the 75 to 100 mg/L range – may be more harmful to aquaculture-raised rainbow trout than producers realize. A team of scientists at the Conservation Fund’s Freshwater Institute led by John Davidson documented deformities and significant behavioral changes in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) raised in recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) with nitrate nitrogen concentrations at levels less than one-tenth the recommended maximum nitrate nitrogen level of 1,000 mg/L. They believe the changes were spurred by chronic exposure to nitrate nitrogen.

Oyster aquaculture could significantly improve Potomac River estuary water quality

Oyster aquaculture could significantly improve Potomac River estuary water quality | Aquaculture | Scoop.it
Potomac River. Oyster aquaculture in the Potomac River estuary could result in significant improvements to water quality, according to a new study. All of the nitrogen currently polluting the Potomac River estuary could be removed if 40 percent of its river bed were used for shellfish cultivation, according to the joint study. The researchers determined that a combination of aquaculture and restored oyster reefs may provide even larger overall ecosystem benefits. Oysters, who feed by filtering, can clean an enormous volume of water of algae which can cause poor water quality.
