    2.2.1.1 Temperature, salinity and dissolved oxygen After extensive studies, several authors have mentioned certain physical, chemical and biological parameters of water and sediment as important for the aquaculture of marine shrimps. Along with dissolved oxygen, water temperature and salinity are considered as significant parameters because of their close association in aquatic ecosystem (OSPAR, 2005). The maximum water temperature recommended by Nunes et al., 2005 and ABBC, 2005 was 32°C, though the lower limit recommended by them varied slightly. Boyd (1990) suggests that 28-30°C is essential for the shrimp aquaculture. However, the optimal level mentioned by Chávez (2009) was 18° to 33°C. Water temperature along with salinity is dependent…

    Another test that was performed was for Dissolved Oxygen, or D.O.. When testing for D.O., measures how much oxygen is in the water that is broken down throughout the water molecules. The fish and other organisms living in the water need dissolved oxygen to survive, except for plants, because plants produce the oxygen in the environment. The dissolved oxygen varies inversely to the temperature of the water. If the dissolved oxygen is low, the water will be too warm and many organisms living in…

    Spatial variability in local plankton communities can have large effects on the composition and diversity of the secondary production with in an area. Therefore, it is important for scientists to study the factors that affect plankton community’s abundance, diversity and dominance. In this study multiple physical and biological factors were observed in order to examine how surface plankton communities varied with distance from shore in the nearshore environment of the Southern California Bight.…

    Ecological impacts of the pollution on local environment. Eutrophication: Eutrophication is rapid growth of phytoplankton and other aquatic organism in aquatic environment in response to excess addition of nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus. Eutrophication can be caused by natural or cultural processes. Natural eutrophication occurs naturally when a lake or stream ages over a century or thousands of years, while cultural eutrophication is anthropogenic in nature. Eutrophication cause in…

    on streets and sidewalks, and most importantly fertilizer from gardens. Water pollution is caused by animal and human feces, urban runoff, chemical spills, and the over-application of fertilizer. Fertilizer contains phosphorus and once phosphorus comes into contact with water, the health of the entire aquatic ecosystem is affected. An overabundance of phosphorus will create an algae bloom, where a rapid increase in algae population accumulates in the water. Once the algae die, harmful…

    Lake Tahoe is located in the Sierra Nevada mountain range in the northeastern part of California, boarding Nevada. It is well known as a tourist attraction for its great depth and clear cobalt blue waters located at high elevation. The combination of its depth, low ratio of watersheds to lake surface area, and its granite rock geology has lead to the creation of a low fertile and high transparent monomictic lake. Its also unique in that it doesn’t fully mix from top to bottom every year, lake…

    Golfers often have a love-hate relationship with water features. Depending on your lie, they can be diabolical hazards or attractive landscape features. No matter how you choose to view them, streams, wetlands, ponds and lakes are integral components of many golf courses that serve a number of important functions; they provide water for irrigation, mitigate flooding by holding stormwater and can serve as important design features. Water features are rich, complex, living ecosystems that provide…
