Proposal titlePollution and Recovery of Fish Farm Sediments

AbstractIn order to prevent interactions between fish farms and the marine environment showing

adverse effects on economy (diseases, low quality etc.) mitigation strategies are urgently

needed. One promising strategy is the transfer of fish farms, which might relieve

organically burdened sediment leading to improved production. There is, however  a lack

of information on the effects of these measures, i.e. in semi-enclosed and none-tidal

systems. Therefore, a major goal of the proposed work is to characterise and model the

change of the benthos at different study sites once the point source of organic enrichment,

i.e. the fish farm, has been removed or established, respectively. Specific objectives should

include documentation and quantificationof the changes ocurring in terms of

biogeochemistry, benthos, and fish pathogens, and to develop a predictive model to

optirnise balance between biomass production and product quality.
