Larger farms have to be separated at greater distances. It is also Basic Data for Site Selection 29 recommended that in cage farms, lay-out pattern of cages should be selected to suit the background, keeping superstructure to a minimum. Similarly, the lay-out of facilities on land has to be in character with the environment. Obviously, it is not easy to recommend or follow rigid rules relating to the maintenance of aesthetic values or scenic harmony. 2 Basic Data for Site Selection A review of available information on the criteria employed and conditions stipulated for according permission for the establishment of aquaculture farms, even in a small number of countries, shows wide variations.
32 g person−1 day−1 of suspended solids from sewage works, the ‘population equivalent’ net mass outﬂow from ﬁsh farms can be expressed as that of 46 600 people. , 1988) as ﬁsh farm waste water is not comparable to domestic sewage even though sewage is used as a fertilizer in certain types of ﬁsh farms. The individual components in treated sewage should nevertheless be comparable. The population equivalents of untreated sewage will be substantially different. For example, Bergheim et al. 5 people.
Thus, suspended solids in tanks settle more rapidly. The nature of efﬂuents naturally vary with the farm design, species cultured, culture practices and quantity of water used. If the concentration of suspended solids and BOD exceeds permissible limits, it is advisable to build the necessary settling facilities in the form of a basin, tank or pond. A typical settling tank or pond would have an inlet, and settling and outlet areas. The sludge accumulates below the settling area (see Fig. 6). 6 Lay-out of a settling pond.
