Abstract

This study was conducted to produce green water using different culture method with different fish species. This study compared the green water production that been produced by using either freshwater fish mix culture and mono culture. The targeted freshwater fish species are Red tilapia, African catfish and Common carp with starting green water concentration 0.05 million cells per milliliter. Mix culture contented red tilapia, African catfish and common carp as a unit. Red tilapia, African catfish and common carp also cultured separately as mono culture. The results show that the mix culture (2.20 million cells per mL) had the highest green water production, in mean values. However, red tilapia culture (1.76 million cells per mL) was the highest green water production among the mono culture method. Meanwhile, the lowest means value of phytoplankton were from the tank of African Catfish. This study suggested that mix culture with low feeding ratio was the best quantity producer in green water. Meanwhile, tilapia culture can be as alternative culture method to produce green water as in mono culture method.
