Abstract

The ability of indigenous microflora of traditional shrimp farming system to remove ammonia was evaluated under laboratory conditions. The indigenous microflora in combination were capable of removal of total ammoniacal nitrogen (TAN) to the tune of 85 - 99% within a week. The activity of nitrifying bacteria was observed to be substrate dependent. The results revealed that the TAN removal rate was affected by high initial TAN concentration and varied microbial activity. The results of the present study would release new avenues for future research and refinement of techniques on bioremediation in shrimp
