ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF BIOFLOC TECHNOLOGY

ADVANTAGES OF BIOFLOC TECHNOLOGY

  1. BIOFLOC is an Eco-friendly culture system.
  2. Environmental impact reduces.
  3. Efficiently improves land and water use 
  4. Negligible or zero water exchange
  5. Productivity is high (enhances survival rate, growth performance, feed conversion in the culture systems of fish).
  6. Bio-security is high
  7. Reduces water pollution and the risk of introduction and spread of pathogens
  8. Cost-effective feed production.
  9. It reduces utilization of protein rich feed and cost of standard feed.
  10. It reduces the pressure on capture fisheries ( use of cheaper food fish and trash fish for fish feed formulation.)

DISADVANTAGES OF BIOFLOC TECHNOLOGY

  1. Energy requirement for mixing and aeration increases
  2. Reduced response time due to water respiration rates are elevated
  3. Start-up period required.
  4. Alkaline supplement required.
  5. Pollution potential from nitrate accumulation increases.
  6. Seasonal and inconsistent performance for sunlight-exposed systems.
