Fresh water is naturally occurring water on the Earth's surface in ice sheets, ice caps, glaciers, icebergs, bogs, ponds, lakes, rivers and streams, and underground as groundwater in aquifers and underground streams. Fresh Water is generally characterized by having low concentrations of dissolved salts and other total dissolved solids. The term specifically excludes seawater and brackish water although it does include mineral-rich waters such as chalybeate springs. The term "sweet water" has been used to describe fresh water in contrast to salt water. The term fresh water does not have the same meaning as potable water. Much surface fresh water and some ground water are unsuitable for drinking without some form of purification because of the presence of chemical or biological contaminants.
OMICS International special features includes organizing 300+ Global events in which around 30 conferences categorized under Agri, Food & Aqua Conferences and veterinary conferences in USA, Europe, Asia, Middle East regions.
Scope and Importance:
Many of the world’s natural fisheries have been decimated in Freshwater biology. To meet future seafood demands, aquaculture must continue to grow. However, aquatic resources are limited, and aquaculture development must address the serious concerns of resource allocation, environmental impact, and sustainability. Current aquaculture activities in the United States vary by region. Although the North Central Region (NCR) is rich in freshwater resources, Freshwater biology, traditional aquaculture activities (both public and private) have been principally driven toward satisfying the demands for recreational fishing and tourism. Other regions of the United States have specialized in the production of fish and seafood for human food markets (e.g., catfish in the south and salmonids in Idaho). The importance of various species differs from state to state within the region. Cold-water trout production occurs in states with adequate supplies of cold surface water or abundant groundwater. Catfish are most important in the southern portions of the region, including Missouri and Illinois, where the growing season is slightly longer. Other alternative food species sales (including walleye, yellow perch, hybrid striped bass, and tilapia) are becoming significant in a majority of the states in the region.
In USA, Freshwater biology or the farming of aquatic organisms continues to expand and intensify, provisions for waste management become very important issues for both producers and environmental regulatory officials. There are a number of types of aquaculture and their environmental impacts are highly varied. For example intensive culture of finfish in tanks or netpens requires the addition of prepared feeds, with attendant waste management problems, but in Europe culture of filter feeding bivalve mollusks or seaweeds may actually cleanse or remove nutrients from effluent waters. A proper waste management plan is needed to maintain the legality, profitability and environmental soundness of any aquaculture facility. Middle East Typical wastes from an aquaculture facility may include feces and nutrients from excretion by aquatic animals, as well as uneaten feeds and chemicals such as therapeutant and cleanser residues. Freshwater biology involves in a significant discharge of waste into lakes, rivers, estuaries or any other receiving waters it may cause adverse environmental impacts. In order to prevent these adverse impacts from occurring, regulations on discharges into receiving waters have been or are in the process of being established. In Asia most cases, aquaculture facilities are not given permits unless there is a waste management plan that meets applicable local, state and federal environmental regulations. The intent of this fact sheet is to: a) describe the waste effluents produced by aquaculture facilities, b) to serve as a guide for water quality regulators and aquaculturists interested in discharge permitting, and c) to provide information for using dilution models in freshwater and coastal water bodies.
