Carbon metabolism and nutrient balance in a hypertrophic production fishpond
Hejzlar, Josef ; Potužák, J. ; Drozd, B. ; Rutegwa, M.
Semi-intensive production of fish in pond culture is based on natural food in the form of zooplankton or zoobenthos and supplemental feeding and manuring applied with balanced nutrient budget. Measurement of the metabolism (i.e., primary production and respiration by the method of continuous measurement of dissolved oxygen in the water column) and the input / output balance for C, N and P in the semi-intensive Dehtář fishpond in the 2015 growth season have shown that additions of fish feeding and manure were from the point of view of utilisable fish feeding in a 3 – 4 fold excess, the efficiency of nutrient transfer through fish food chains was low and that most of the primary production remained unused for fish production, resulting in eutrophication problems with accumulation of biomass in water, high respiration of phytoplankton and microbial chains, hypoxia conditions, and intense N and P cycling.
Methods of study habitats and microhabitats preferences of freshwater fishes of Central Europe
Žák, Jakub ; Švátora, Miroslav (advisor) ; Drozd, Bořek (referee)
Small streams are a common habitat in Central Europe with unstable, rapidly-changing conditions. We can examine habitats on three different scales: microhabitat, mesohabitat and macrohabitat. Habitat preferences were among the fields of interest of Antonín Frič as he tried to describe the changing gradient of fish assemblages from source to the river's mouth on the macrohabitat scale. Habitat preferences are examined from a spatial point of view (substrate, depth, shelter), temporal point of view (season, day/night), biotic point of view (interspecies and intraspecies competition) and abiotic point of view (dissolved chemicals, velocity). For obtaining data of good quality, it is necessary to choose the right location and select the opti- mal strategy of examining fish assemblages (e.g. electrofishing, radiotelemetry, cameras). All variables which can affect habitat preferences in fish are measured. Multivariate statistical methods (e.g. PCA, RDA, CCA, CA) are used for evaluation of obtained datasets. Currently, we live in a fast developing period of this scientific area because of the need of evaluation of the human impact on freshwater biotope. The aim of this bachelor thesis is to introduce variables which influence habitat pref- erences of fish, to propose a modern review of methods commonly...
