    The fourth paper I will review is titled ‘<b style=”font-family: inherit; font-size: inherit; color: var(–bb-body-text-color);”>Food Value, Water Use Efficiency and Economic Productivity of an Integrated Aquaculture-Olericulture System as Influenced by Component Ratio‘.

    The study demonstrates that iAVs efficiently utilizes the nutrients available from fish waste to support plant growth without the need for additional supplementation.

    The iAVs method has been shown to maintain adequate levels of aqueous nitrate concentrations through microbial conversions and plant assimilation of nitrogenous compounds, which are critical for plant growth. This indicates that the system can self-regulate the availability of essential nutrients within the recirculating water, relying on the natural processes of biofiltration and plant uptake.

    The scientific evidence from the study clearly indicates that iAVs does not require the addition of base minerals or other supplementary nutrients, as the system inherently provides a balanced nutrient profile through the recycling of fish waste. This contradicts the incorrect assertion that iAVs requires usual supplementation of base minerals due to their unavailability or rapid uptake by plants.
