"Dunarea de Jos” University of Galati (UDJG) through the Department of Aquaculture, Environmental Science and Cadastre (ASMC) is the major provider of higher education in fisheries and aquaculture in Romania. ASMC conducts basic and applied research in freshwater aquaculture and the environmental protection, with a focus on the conservation and sustainable exploitation of the aquatic bio-resources in Romania. Also, it is engaged in consulting and advisory activities. ASMC has laboratory facilities (for hydrobiology, ecophysiology and ichtyopathology), field sampling equipment and computing facilities. As regarding aquaculture, the research program of the Department, mainly financed through the national research grants and European structural funds, focuses on the following topics: management of water quality in intensive aquaculture production systems; welfare of the farmed fish (cyprinids, sturgeons); development of aquaculture systems and technologies for different fish species (cyprinids, sturgeons, tilapia); management of endangered species (sturgeons); quality and safety of fish products for human consumption.

The impact of the project:

  • Revitalizing pond aquaculture of cyprids in Romania by finding new methods involving innovative IMTA techniques for increasing their productivity on the Romanian aquaculture sector.
  • Widening the range of services and strengthening institutional capacity by acquiring new skills in IMTA application by project members

The main objectives of this case-study are to clarify the links between the living aquatic organisms and biological compartments, in order to optimize the use of nutrients and to propose new production systems, more efficient and environmentally friendly:

  • To define in which extend we can make comparison between sites, and how it helps to answer to the generic questions
  • To focus on the different methodologies which can be applied in the different case studies - IMTA consisted of organisms from three different trophic levels combined with IMTA fed with feeds from local agriculture
  • Reuse of nutrient losses of semi-intensive culture (carp) ponds by extensive culture (silver carp, bighead carp, grass carp, silver crucian carp), plankton and benthos pathways.

The specific objectives:

  • Limiting the waste composition in outlet technological water resulted from the industrial cyprinid aquaculture
  • Valorisation of agricultural products for the realization of feed recipe to be used in the new created systems
  • Improving the sustainability of already existing ponds systems by applying IMTA innovative techniques
  • Identification of technical solutions for improving the productivity of the pond production systems

In the pond systems, the fate of nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorus) will be monitored in: fish, aquatic macrophytes, water and sediment. The concentration of phytoplankton will be monitored with AlgaeTorch10 in the experimental units. A survey of aquatic biodiversity will be performed.
