Analysis of the Productive Capacity of an Aquaponic System with Macrobrachium Amazonicum (Heller, 1862) and Lettuce Culture (Lactuta Sativa Var. Crispa)

Carlos Otavio Rodrigues dos Santos | Antonio Pereira Junior [3]


Abstract: Aquaculture is one of the activities that depend on integrally of availability of water to be developed, both in quantity and quality. The present work aimed to realize one study in the productive capacity of the aquaponic system using farm shrimp (M. amazonicum Heller) with the development olive tree of Lactuta sativa specie. The method used was the experimental one, performing analyzes on physicochemical water parameters: Dissolved Oxygen (DO), pH, Electrical Conductivity (EC), Temperature, Turbidity (Tb), Ammonia, Nitrate, and Total Phosphor). The data analyzed indicated that there was one increment of biomass satisfactory (0, 25 g to 0, 878 g). Concerning water quality, it was noticed that dissolved oxygen and total phosphor were the only parameters that were outside the normative standards (4, 59 mg/L and 2, 91 mg/L, respectively), therefore, below of standard indicated for the National Environmental Council 357/05 (>5 mg/L and ≤ 0, 03 mg/L, respectively). About parameters for farming shrimp, DO (4, 59 mg/L), pH (5.84), ammonia (3, 07 mg/L) and total phosphorus (2, 91 mg/L) were prone to abnormality, therefore, non-standard (>5 mg/L; 7, 4 to 8, 4; ≤1, 6 mg/L; <0, 5 mg/L, respectively). Regarding the development of L. sativa var. crispa, six individuals were analyzed, of which 1 presented better development than the others. Thus, aquaponic can provide good water quality from both a zootechnical, environmental, and hydroponic point of view.
