This work focuses on the evaluation of water quality in four different constructed Tilapia fish breeding wetlands in Lebanon under several conditions. The complete analysis of water included the organoleptic evaluation, physical parameters, chemical and bacteriological characteristics. It has been found that water in created water ponds for fish production does not correspond to international water quality standards. The results reveal that the study area faces bacteriological pollution level in this area is above the criterion specified for aquaculture. It was found out that the water quality was not good and the phosphate and nitrite contents in the water were above standard level and thus needs to be treated continuously. While the impact of this study on the environment is of crucial importance to the local farmers, the whole region will benefit from the provided model in order to obtain good water with all the biological nutrients, at the same without any excess of non-desirable compounds.Pages: 43-47 | 867 Views 17 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
