Abstract:

The present study was undertaken to investigate the effect of biofloc-based aquaculture system on water quality suitability for the growth of rohu for a period of 120 days under laboratory conditions in triplicates. Different water quality parameters were checked at weekly interval. Sugar has been given as the source of carbon and ammonium chloride as source of ammonia. Much difference was not found in the water quality parameters except nitrate, nitrite and BOD when compared to control.
