Aquatic Systems Summary* – Part I
Please summarize water management and monitoring information programmes for each animal facility, including all satellite facilities/rooms/enclosures. The following key will assist you in completing the form:
List location of aquaria, including outdoor enclosures (ponds or outdoor tanks). If indoors, list building and room number. Note that all species housed at the same location and maintained via the same design and monitoring may be listed in the same row.
Please indicate if embryonic (E), larval (L), juvenile (J) or Adult (A)
Group tanks (ponds, outdoor tanks, multiple aquaria) are arranged as arrays with shared water supply; individual aquaria have exclusive water handling systems.
Indicate water type, e.g., fresh, brackish, or marine.
Indicate water circulation, e.g., static, re-circulated, constant flow, or some combination of these. If applicable, indicate water exchange frequency and amount (percentage).
Provide a key word for filtration employed, e.g., biological, chemical, mechanical, etc. and type (e.g., mechanical-bead filter). A diagram may be provided showing the flow of water, filtration, source of “make-up” water and amount replaced daily.
Group / Individual
(e.g., UV, ozone)
*Records of equipment maintenance (filter changes, UV bulb changes, probe changes, calibrations, etc.) should be available for review.
