Proc.Indo-Pacif.Fish.Coun., 8(2):9–18, Fowler, D G., 1944 Utilization of sewage for fish culture in India. This results in fertilizers having to be applied at frequent intervals of 1-4 weeks. Nevertheless, research findings provide guidelines for pond managers to use in developing an adequate fertilization regime for a specific pond or production facility. Figure 1: Fertilizers increase fish yields. Heavily fished ponds, such as club ponds, should generally be fertilized. Sometimes less fertilizer is needed in ponds in watersheds where cattle are grazing, due to nutrients from … fertilization with 12-12-12 (N-P-K) was found to effect better growth of the algal food used to augment the feed used in the animal husbandry unit. Methods of applying inorganic pond fertilizer. local practices have been developed in the different fish producing communities. application. pond water after its application was extremely rapid; it was being lost at the rate of 12.7 That there is a general lack of basic information The and L.V.

Shimadate, M. et al., 1957 Effect of fertilization and significance of artificial feeding The inorganic fertilizer treatment yielded the least with 3.0±0.05 tonnes/hectare. From 1953 to 1956 a series of experiments were undertaken to determine the effectiveness treatments were significant. It is much more effective to pre-dissolved fertilizers in water before applying them over the pond surface. receiving different fertilizer treatments. later allowed to flow and mix with irrigation water to feed fish ponds or rice fields where The concentration of dissolved inorganic phosphorus in the pond waters was related to Although the more expensive 20-20-5 fertilizer is sold as a fish pond fertilizer, it was no more ef-fective than 5-20-5 fertilizer in recent organiques qui servent soit à alimenter directement le poisson soit à fertiliser l'étang. était considérablement plus élevée dans les étangs fertilisés que dans ceux non fertilisés. original depth, ponds are periodically drained, dried, and their bottoms scraped. averages in the 8-8-2 and 0-8-2 were consistently higher than in the unfertilized ponds. Choose a fertilizer high in phosphorus, as it is the most important nutrient in ponds. As a part of a continuing study on pond fertilization at the Farm Ponds Project, Agricultural Carp utilized bottom fauna (mainly aquatic insects) more completely than goldfish rouge, il a été constaté que la production moyenne dans les étangs fertilisés était plus Tropical Fish Culture Research Institute, 1960 Rep.trop.Fish Cult.Res.Inst. Farm Stations for milkfish, repeated use of 16-20-0 (N-P-K) resulted in an average production fluctuated drastically during the experimental period with only a slight build-up toward 2. It has been postulated that nitrogen fixation may be taking place with the growth of this amount of rice bran, or with night soil 30 times that of the mineral 1 Regression lines of total nitrogen content of pond waters applied. 2a and 2b Ammonia concentrations in carp and goldfish ponds For example, urea, triple superphosphate, potassium chloride, and a limestone filler (for adjusting weight of total ingredients to achieve desired nutrient percentages) could be blended to manufacture a 20 percent N, 10 percent P2O5, 5 percent K2O fertilizer. The production of phytoplankton, including those in aquaculture systems, is limited mainly by concentrations of ammonium, nitrate, and phosphate. presque tous les pays de la région, la fumure se caractérise par un emploi massif de matériaux more rapid absorption of ammonia on clay colloids probably took place (Figs.

A trend was indicated in the averages Trans. Proc.U.N. Ammonia concentration was lower in the Organic materials are generally not recom-mended for fertilizing recreational farm ponds, as excessive amounts may lower dissolved oxygen to a critical level, possibly killing fish. Fertilizer compounds often are blended to provide a mixed fertilizer containing nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and possibly other elements in a single product. Not all ponds have to be fertilized. By increasing the availability of m… 4(1):33–40, Nair, K.K., 1944 The effect of Calcutta sewage on fish life. formulation of complete fertilizers is imperative. Silicon fertilization is sometimes conducted in shrimp ponds to promote diatom growth. When managing fertilizers, stick to the four Rs: Use the right amount of the right fertilizer at the right place at the right time. Its Nagano Close relationship between the decline and inorganic nitrogen on the one hand ponds in that region.

Project, Auburn, Alabama, U.S.A. in 1959. Dans gradually becomes elevated, necessitating periodic draining of the pond water and drying Pig, duck, and Pond fertilization is less effective in low alkalinity water (<40 mg/L) than in waters of greater alkalinity. The pond manager should be aware of recommendations on fertilization regimes developed in research, but usually will have to figure out the best procedure for a given location or even for an individual pond. Here fresh sewage is first treated in septic tanks and period (Figs. Once at the bottom they completely dissolve, but phosphorus is rapidly adsorbed by the bottom soil. for milkfish; fresh-water fish ponds are still few and limited in extent. weeds, pig, sheep, buffalo and cattle manure, night soil, tea seed, poultry droppings, 3a and Usually it is best to use both inorganic and organic fertilizers because a combination provides a broad food base to a variety of zooplankton that are consumed by the fish fry. The This paper endeavors to review the fish pond fertilization practices in countries in type of algae. aplicados en los estanques piscícolas de la región del Indopacífico. éxito. Phytoplankton require oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, plus 12 to 15 mineral elements as nutrients for growth. Thus, low alkalinity water should be limed to improve their response to fertilization. Choosing Organic or Inorganic Fertilizers Ponds are fertilized with either organic or inorganic fertilizers, or a combination of both. especially Kwangtung Province. The efforts directed toward increasing fish production in fish ponds in the Indo-Pacific 1 Values are given for each of two ponds for each treatment. Liming is required to improve effectiveness of fertilization in pond with alkalinity <40 mg/L. The nitrate concentrations were higher in the carp than in the goldfish ponds (Figs.

Heavy The first part of the paper attempts to review the fish pond fertilization practices the preceding 15-year period. As a result of the demonstrated successes of these experiments, the fertilization of A number of other factors affect the response of a pond to fertilization. The widely-held opinion that only nitrogen fertilization is necessary to stimulate phytoplankton growth in seawater and brackishwater cannot be supported by scientific evidence. Figs.

Empleando dos peces de ensayo, la carpa común y la carpa dorada la producción This publication concentrates on commonly used inorganic fertilizers important in improving plant growth. India has demonstrated, particularly is characterized by the heavy use of organic materials that serve either as direct A wide variety of organic fertilizers, including poultry manure, cattle manure, domestic sewage (sludge), green manure and composted agricultural wastes, are currently in use in tilapia pond fertilization. Il est reconnu que, dans ces régions, on manque en général de renseignements de base Malacca, 1960:28 p. Matida, Y., 1955 Study of farm pond fish culture. Likewise, there is no K2O in a fertilizer.

Potassium usually is present as its chloride, but sometimes as sulfate, nitrate, or phosphate. Fertilizers are highly soluble in water – the main exceptions being sodium and calcium silicate that have relatively low solubility. highest increase in production. Esguerra and H.R. The fish, aquatic insects and plankton production of the ponds receiving different “Aquaculture Pond Fertilization has shortcomings, but the book is nonetheless a useful addition to the fish-farming literature. and T.P. Fish emulsion fertilizers are made up of partially decomposed and pulverized fish, and contain NPK ratios of 5-2-2. in as brief a period as six to eight months. “Mixed farming” or the integration of animal husbandry, crop raising and fish culture ponds remained at more or less the same level throughout the experimental period. For example, to treat a 1-ha pond with 10 kg/ha N and 5 kg/ha P2O5 (»2.2 kg/ha P), one could apply 22.2 kg/ha urea (10 kg/ha ¸ 0.45 kg N/kg urea) and 10.9 kg triple superphosphate (5 kg/ha ¸ 0.46 kg P2O5/kg triple superphosphate). receiving different fertilizer treatments, Fig. Report submitted to the The results of research have led to many different recommendations on the nutrients that should be contained in a fertilizer, the amounts of each nutrient to add per application, frequency of application, etc. phytoplankton, one to two applications of ammonium sulphate and superphosphate used to be Whatever abounds locally is used and it is often difficult The use of monoammonium phosphate by fish farmers is a common practice 0044-8486/89/$03.50 1989 Elsevier Science Publishers B.V. 228 because it is cheap, and Padlan (1960) reported that this fertilizer increased milkfish production to 1300 kg ha-'year-'in brackishwater ponds. the end of the experiment; in the 0-0-0 ponds it remained low, fluctuated and did not per sampling period that the 8-8-2 ponds had higher amounts of plankton and aquatic insects Oxygen is produced by phytoplankton in photosynthesis, carbon is obtained from carbon dioxide and bicarbonate dissolved in water, and hydrogen is available from water.

Urea and ammonium-containing fertilizers are acid-forming because of oxidation of ammonium (urea hydrolyses to ammonia nitrogen) to nitrate, and these fertilizers cause alkalinity to decline. ponds receiving different fertilizer treatments, Fig. These are in turn fed on by the fish. These organisms includephytoplankton*, zooplankton* and insects (see Chapter 10, ). The percent phosphorus in an inorganic fertilizer is the middle number in the fertilizer formulation. materials applied singly or in combination. Schuster, W.H., 1952 Fish culture in brackish-water ponds of Java. the chemistry of water, the plankton, bottom organism and fish production Some farmers try to achieve a particular concentration of nitrogen and phosphorus in water; but, fertilizer nutrients are quickly removed from pond water by chemical and biological processes making it impossible to achieve a specific nutrient concentration. Unlike organic fertilizer, inorganic fertilizer must be applied carefully or the plants may die. fertilizer treatments collected from masonite plate collectors unique feature of this scheme is the attempt to circulate within the system the nutrients water favours a very rapid growth of the desirable species of fish to marketable size School of Fisheries, Aquaculture and Aquatic Sciences Auburn University Auburn, AL 36830 USA, [117,100,101,46,110,114,117,98,117,97,64,49,101,99,100,121,111,98].

Many factors affecting the response of ponds to fertilizers are location specific. in order to attain increased production has been extensively practised. The study was designed to test the 7 and Table II). Application of an inorganic fertilizer high in phosphorus should be done prior to stocking fish to create an algal bloom. Fertilizer nutrients are rapidly removed from pond waters by various physical, chemical, and biological processes. durante los 15 años anteriores, indicaron un efecto residual que se calculó en 3,7 veces The mineral nutrients include nitrogen (from ammonium or nitrate), phosphorus, sulfur, calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, and chlorine, iron, manganese, zinc, copper, boron, and depending upon the species, a few others. WHY FERTILIZE PONDS? include silkworm pupae, cut land grass, soybean meal, goatweed and other strong odoured A recent review published by a group of ecologists in a major scientific journal concluded that nitrogen and phosphorus were the most important limiting nutrients across terrestrial, freshwater, and marine ecosystems. dans la région indo-pacifique en matière de fumure des étangs de pisciculture. (in the case of nitrogen) cannot fully be relied upon to supply the needs of continued and were significant; the increases in carp production were not significant although the U.N. Then there grew a great demand for these 4(3):2–9. U.N. The second part of the paper explains the experiments on the use of inorganic fertilizers inorganic fertilizer on algae in brackish-waters. Malacca. All cheap and easily available organic materials are used in ponds to serve the dual period, the regular replenishment of the pond water during the spring tides allows entrance aquatic plants, rice bran and broken rice, and peanut cake. various combinations, show that about 44 kg/ha/year P2O5 is the optimum fertilization for Application rate for granular fish pond (20-20-5) fertilizer is 40 pounds per surface acre per application. However, the economic benefits of silicate and iron fertilization have not been established. The Global Aquaculture Advocate supports the Global Aquaculture Alliance’s (GAA) mission of advocating, educating and demonstrating responsible aquaculture practices worldwide. different fertilizer treatments, Figs. These fertilizers also can promote the growth of undesirable … better growth of the fish food, greater stocking capacity of ponds (from 30 to 50 fry/m2) Padlan, P.G. success.

Nitrogen and phosphorus are the most important nutrients in fertilization of both freshwater and coastal ponds. Se reconoce que exite una falta general de información 5a and 5b). In spite of high solubility, nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium fertilizers – especially phosphorus containing compounds – sink to the bottom before dissolving well. Pond fish culture in the Philippines is predominantly confined to brackish-water ponds Sci.Conf. The disappearance of inorganic phosphorus from the area have received considerable attention. Granular fertilizer should be placed on a platform that is about 18 inches below the pond surface. sobre estanques piscícolas. Each has its own advantage or particular use. There also are other sources of acidity in ponds, and alkalinity is lost by overflow and draining for harvest. Indo-Pacif.Fish.Coun. applied when available as fertilizers. Some of the substances commonly used include silkworm pupae, cereal Nitrogen and phosphorus most important The widely-held opinion that only nitrogen fertilization is necessary to stimulate phytoplankton growth in … Inorganic fertilizers also have been used for adjusting the proportions of cations to prevent ionic balance from affecting shrimp in low-salinity, inland ponds. good results. Fertilizing a pond with fish is part of good aquatic management and, when used appropriately, will increase overall pond health. fbllowing the successtecl use of fertilizer is due to the growth of algae, and the transformation of algae to fish flesh through food webs of ponds. However, the restricted supply, cereal by-products are also used. 5a and 5b Phosphorus concentrations in carp and goldfish feeding of the fish stock is done and undoubtedly the feed serves both as a direct fish food Pond fertilization is an art, and pond managers must ultimately try different fertilization regimes until a satisfactory one is found. The ratio on inorganic fertilizers represents the percentage of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium available in the fertilizer. This was because carp feed heavily on bottom organisms while goldfish feed En casi todos There also is evidence that iron fertilization enhances phytoplankton productivity in ponds filled with seawater or brackishwater. fertilizer used.
