Large-scale bioremediation experiments

The SPINAQUA team performed a series of controlled, large-scale laboratory experiments at the Aqualabs facilities of IMBBC-HCMR (Crete), in order to assess the cleanup capacity of four sponge species against microalgae. Specific microalgae were selected as a model for the biological pollution typically encountered in fish aquaculture settings. Sponge fragments…

1st cleanup experiment

The first in vitro bioremediation experiment was performed by the SPINAQUA team. During this procedure, two sponge species previously placed in IMBBC experimental aquaria, were supplied with three microalgae species. Their clearance capacity was measured by fluorescence microplate reader analysis.
