dc.description.abstractBiofloc technology (BFT) is an approach in the rearing of fish and shrimp as a means to support intensive culture, maintain optimum water quality, recycle the nutrients and reduce feed costs. The technology is primarily based on the principle of recycling nitrogenous wastes into microbial biomass that can be assimilated by the cultured animals as feeds or facilitates in maintaining good water quality. The rearing of larvae and juveniles of ornamental fish is confronted with issues on low survival rate, poor water quality and high incidence of diseases. These problems can be mitigated through the use of biofloc technology. From a number of studies reviewed, BFT offers a viable approach in ensuring sustainable production of ornamental fish. The benefits of using this technology include enhancement of water quality by reducing the levels of nitrogenous wastes, efficient feed conversion resulting in better growth and reduction in production costs and better immune response that will enable the fish to have higher resistance against infectious diseases.en
