Shankar, K.M. and Mohan, C.V. and Nandeesha, M.C. (1998) Promotion of substrate based microbial biofilm in ponds: a low cost technology to boost fish production. Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 21(4), pp. 18-22.
Microbial biofilms have been found to increase fish production in ponds by increasing heterotrophic production through periphyton proliferation on available substrates. In this paper, the role of substrate based microbial biofilm in the production of Cyprinus carpio and Labeo rohita grown in ponds is investigated, using an easily available and biodegradable agricultural waste product (sugarcane bagasse) as substrate.
