Speech Title "Recent Advancement in Studying Interactions of Nutrients, Algae (Fish) and Prometryn in Aquaculture"

Abstract-The application of nutrients specifically Nitrogen and Phosphorus has become an alarming issue in damaging water quality and ecological system. The worldwide extension and intensification of aquaculture have greatly increased nutrient loading in aquatic ecosystems. Eutrophication is badly affecting numerous water bodies ranging from lakes, ponds, streams and rivers to offshore waters leading to critical losses in ecosystem services. Well-documented is that aquaculture heavily depends on exogenous feeding, and fish feed has been considered as a key factor in impacting aquaculture and water quality. There is a knowledge gap in the interaction of fish feed (nutrients), algal bloom and fish growth and chemicals (prometryn). This paper reports recent progresses in studying interactions of nutrients, algae (fish) and chemical (prometryn) in three parts. The first part will highlight advances in mathematical formulations through combining Logistic and Monod functions to study growth of algae and fish, variations of nutrients concentrations, etc. Second part will concentrate on studies which have been performed in laboratory like incubator and aquarium to analyze the effects of fish feed and prometryn addition scenarios to study algae growth dynamics as well as the effects of different fish feed qualities on algae and fish growth for well-mixed systems. Recent progresses in field and enclosure experiments are briefly summarized in the third part.
