Aquaculture & algae

Surface water quality in ponds, water depots, canals, rivers and lakes is influenced by the influx of contaminants from human discharge, agriculture, industry and animal life in and on the water.

Fertilization in agriculture or on golf courses, discharge of treated or untreated sewage, industrial chemical discharge or even an overload of excrement from water birds and even fish will seriously affect the water quality of the receiving waterbody. This can lead to algae blooms (eutrophication) of green and blue algae and even lead to the complete starvation of the aquatic life (distrophication).

QM Environmental International offers several solutions which can be utilized to handle these emissions and restore the water quality.

QM Environmental International solutions comprise:

  • MicroCat-AL3/ALN, microbial formulations for the control of algae growth.
  • MicroCat-ALF3/ALSH, microbial formulations for commercial fish and shrimp farms to improve water quality and increase fish production.
  • MicroCat-PC, microbial formulation for aquaria and ponds for algae control.
  • MicroCat-HX, microbial formulation in combination with powdered activated carbon to reduce toxicity from hazardous chemicals spilled into surface waters.
  • MicroCat-XRT, microbial formulation to biodegrade oil films spilled on surface waters.
  • QM-BioDredge, a combination of naturally occurring aerobic and facultative anaerobic bacteria in combination with mineral carriers for reducing mud levels in ponds and lakes.
