Objectives

1. Construct nutrient (nitrogen, phosphorus) and suspended solid budgets (inputs and outputs) for entire prawn farms at tropical and temperate locations.
2. Determine the origin and composition of pond effluent. For example, establish the proportion of nutrients which originate from fertilization compared to food input
determine the suspended solids load in intake water compared with effluent.
3. Assess alternative methods of pond effluent prevention and treatment.
