Aquacultural Wastes and Effluents: Their Characteristics, Removal, and Beneficial Uses

Project

Description


The third Wastes/Effluents Funded Project.  Chaired by Bob Summerfelt


Objectives:


1. Document the fate of aquaculture waste components (phosphorus, nitrogen, solids) relative to feed input into traditional and newly designed aquaculture systems.


2. Evaluate the technical and economic feasibility of rapid solids removal/recovery appropriate for new aquaculture facility designs.


3. Demonstrate economically sound processing methods for beneficial use of aquaculture waste.


4. Provide workshops and fact sheets that address best management practices (BMPs) for waste control.
