Author(s): Tarang Kumar Shah, Iqra nazir, Priyanka Arya and Tanuja Pandey
The Integrated multi trophic aquaculture involving fed species with organic extractive species and Inorganic extractive species that utilize wastes from aquaculture for their growth. The IMTA concept is very easy and flexible. IMTA systems can be land-based or open-water systems such as marine or freshwater systems, and may comprise several species combinations (Neori et al.
Some IMTA systems have included such combinations as shellfish/shrimp, fish/seaweed/shellfish, fish/shrimp and seaweed/shrimp (Troell et al., 2003). The combination of fish/seaweed/shellfish is very important for IMTA because this combination is cover all trophic level of water bodies. To the aims of IMTA is “To ecologically engineer system for environmental sustainability, economic sustainability and societal sustainability.”
