Abstract

Bacterial Diversity Greatly Affects Ammonia and Overall Nitrogen Levels in Aquabioponics Bioflocs Systems, Based on 16S rRNA Gene Amplicon Metagenomics

Aecio DSilva, John A Kyndt

AquaBioPonics Bioflocs system, that synergistically combines aquaculture with bioflocs technology, algae cultivation, hydroponics and rainwater harvesting, is an efficient aquaculture biotechnology to produce fish, shrimp and organic vegetables. By adding a commercial probiotic to our systems, we observed an improved productivity and significantly lower ammonia concentrations. We provide initial insight into the overall microbiome and the presence of nitrogen metabolizing bacteria present in these high-yield aquaculture systems.
