A survey of attached algae on the shoreline near 7 caged-aquaculture farms on Manitoulin Island, Ontario: En13-5/5-160E-PDF

"Shorelines near seven fresh water caged-aquaculture farms were observed for attached algae. Potential increases in nutrient loading of phosphorus and nitrogen may occur from standard farm operations, including feeding and fish excrement. Attached algal growth provides a time integrated effect of nutrient loading. Overall, at most farms we found minimal attached algal growth in receiving waters near caged-aquaculture farms. Farms in areas with good water exchange"--p. [1].
