Experimental sea-water system for rearing fish larvae

Experimental sea-water system for rearing fish larvae

Us Fish Wildlife Serv Res Rep 63: 81-93

Marine fish are not easy to rear in aquariums, but encouraging results have been achieved for the plaice (Pleuronectes platessa) in closed circulation at Lowestoft. Two temperature-controlled sea-water systems are described, both using illuminated green algae for metabolite regulation, and one having a measure of bacterial control by ultraviolet light. Survival is better in open circulation where metabolite accumulations are less severe. Two further hatchery systems are outlined; one delivering a continuous flow of filtered and temperature-adjusted sea water for local experimental use, and the other for conducting long-term experiments on chemical factors affecting egg and larval survival.
