Culture of selected estuarine organisms and monitoring of water quality in flow-through tanks receiving power-plant effluent.
MetadataShow full item record
Twenty three species (2 molluscs, 4 crustaceans, and 17 fish) were screened for their maricultural potential. These 23 species and 22 other species (1 mollusc, 2 crustaceans, 16 fishes, and 3 turtles) were also used as biological monitors in flow-through tanks and troughs receiving effluent from a power plant located on upper Galveston Bay, Texas. Growth and survival of organisms were monitored in water thermally regulated to 20, 25 and 30 C and in non-thermally-regulated water taken fron the power plant discharge canal. Ambient conductivity ranged from 0 to 28 mmho/cm.
