Energy efficient and sustainable aquaculture water treatment Using microbial fuel cells and membrane-supported biofilms

  • Investigate the feasibility of a new treatment process, based on microbial fuel cells and membrane-supported biofilms reactors for removing nitrogen and sulfide in simulated recirculating aquaculture systems wastewater.
  • Determine the nitrogen and sulfide removal efficiencies, and levels of electric power production
  • Test different reactor configurations under variable loading conditions

Lipid Nutrition and Metabolism in Yellow Perch

The objectives of this project are to:

  • Develop a growth curve for yellow perch fed purified and practical diets.
  • Evaluate the effects of dietary lipids on growth, feed efficiency, and nutritional composition of fillets.
  • Provide an indication of the essential fatty acid needs of yellow perch.
