Enhancing sustainable aquaculture production through Periphyton-based practices

Author(s): Suman Karmakar, Bhanu Prakash CH, Sayantan Bhattacharjee, Aritriya Jana and Sulav Mandal
Abstract: Periphyton-based aquaculture represents a form of aquaculture that attaches periphyton, a diverse mix of microorganisms (including algae, bacteria, fungi, and protozoans) that adhere to submerged surfaces, as a primary food source for aquatic organisms. In this cultivation approach, aquatic organisms such as fish, shrimp, or other invertebrates are raised in systems where periphyton naturally grows or is intentionally fostered. This method is particularly well-suited for herbivorous or omnivorous species, as they can directly or indirectly consume periphyton within the food chain. Overall, periphyton-based aquaculture emerges as a promising and sustainable alternative to traditional aquaculture practices, especially beneficial for small-scale farmers in developing countries. This approach holds the potential to provide a reliable source of food and income for local communities while mitigating environmental impacts.
