Using the buoyancy of the entrained air bubbles to lift the water, airlifts are more energy-efficient and provide more aeration, carbon dioxide removal and foam fractionation for dissolved solids removal than centrifugal pump systems.
Rotifers are a dominant zooplankton that are a preferred prey for larval fish and one of the live feeds most often used by fish culturists.
The University of Georgia Marine Shellfish Laboratory developed an integrated system to produce both algae and northern quahog seed clams.
