Researchers from CIIMAR and ICBAS from University of Porto published an article improving knowledge about dynamics in microbiome in water in RAS aquaculture commercial farm of sole (Solea Senegalensis).
This production unit, as detailed in the study, consists of four systems: a weaning unit, a pre-fattening unit, a reproduction area and an open system for larval culture.
The results of the analyzes have been published in the scientific journal Aquaculture, and show that the prokaryotic community is highly dynamic and sensitive to changes in the salinity, temperature and pH of the water. Any fluctuation in the physico-chemical parameters, they point out in the study, are “undesirable” and “potentially harmful” for the well-being of the fish.
