Example text

Probably the most important feature of the system, as in coastal marshes, is the export of large amounts of detritus by tidal currents to adjacent coastal waters, which form a major source of nutrients for maintaining productivity. For example, a stand of Rhizophora apiculata in southern Thailand was estimated to produce 7 t of leaves and 20 t ha−1 of wood per year. Some of this enters the foodweb as detritus. Phytoplankton production in coastal waters here is around 5000 mg C (carbon) m−2d−1. Heald (1971) estimated that 40% of the detritus in a south Florida estuary was exported from a mangrove swamp.

Considering the north European countries as a whole, Leffertstra (1988) Assessment of Pollutive Effects 23 points out that the entire fish farming industry does not contribute significantly to nutrient loading of the North Sea, notwithstanding some of the observed local effects. 2 Assessment of Pollutive Effects To assess the pollution potential of effluents from aquaculture farms, comparison with mass flows of pollutants from sewage works treating only domestic wastes has been suggested (Solbe, 1982).

8 illustrates the design of the device, which is a circular tank with a tangentially directed water flow, which introduces secondary motion flows that draw the solids to the bottom of the tank. An overflow weir at the surface in the centre ensures a clarified outflow. It is then possible to concentrate the solids and discharge them to a sewer using a flow of only 1–5% of the total. Though reported to be successful in initial tests, only very few appear to have been used under farm conditions, and then in conjunction with settling ponds.
