From: Warrer-Hansen, 1982) that the water velocity in the settling zone is not too high, as otherwise resuspension of the settled solids may occur. Based on experience, Warrer-Hansen (1982) suggests that the velocity should not exceed 2– 4 cm s−1, and the depth and retention time have to be adjusted to obtain this velocity. Based on Danish experience, Mortensen (1977) concludes that a detention period of 20 minutes in a settling tank is sufficient in most cases to obtain satisfactory settling of suspended solids.

1 A Danish trout farm, where individual outlets are now prohibited. Restrictions on the Use of Potential Sites 27 and direct outlets from individual ponds are prohibited. The maximum production limit, and in some cases the quantity of food to be used, may also be stipulated. The use of trash fish as feed, which was considered to be one of the major reasons for insanitary conditions and disease outbreaks, is no longer allowed. The admissible limits of effluent constituents, including BOD, suspended solids and nutrients, are prescribed.

For example, salmonid farms require a water flow of about 12–20 l s−1t−1of production. This is probably more per unit of production than for most manufacturing processes. The cost of advanced treatment of such large quantities of water is prohibitive for both large and small-scale aquaculture farms. Experience so far in water re-use systems suggests that sedimentation, followed by biological nutrient removal, is likely to be the most feasible means of fish-farm waste treatment (see Liao & Mayo, 1974; Muir, 1982).
