Summary

This dataset includes laboratory data collected to determine the effects of hydrogen peroxide on nitrification processes in biofilters of recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS). Data from the laboratory studies were used to inform methods used to conduct field trials in pilot- and commercial-scale RAS. Biofilter nitrification was monitored by measuring the levels of total ammonia-nitrogen, nitrite-nitrogen, and nitrate-nitrogen in experimental aquaria containing a small biofilter before and after hydrogen peroxide was applied to the test system. There are 4 excel workbooks associated with this data set: RASHP Range finding Trial.csv, RASHP Definitive Trial.csv, Hydrogen Peroxide Lab Studies.csv, and DO after HP addition.csv

Purpose

These data were collected to determine how bacterial nitrification in recirculating aquaculture systems changes when exposed to hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide is an approved aquaculture therapeutic drug, but not yet approved for use in RAS. These data will help support data already accepted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that demonstrated the effectiveness of 35% PEROX-AID® (hydrogen peroxide) to (1) control mortality in freshwater-reared finfish eggs due to saprolegniasis, (2) in freshwater-reared salmonids due to bacterial gill disease, (3) in freshwater-reared coolwater finfish and channel catfish due to external columnaris disease, (4) in freshwater-reared finfish due to saprolegniasis and (5) reduce infestation density in freshwater-reared salmonids due to Gyrodactylus sp. The use of 35% PEROX-AID® for these label claims is designated by the FDA Office of Minor Use Minor Species (MUMS). This research supports expansion of the approved label of 35% PEROX-AID® (hydrogen peroxide), a MUMS-designated drug, to control the aforementioned pathogens of freshwater finfish in RAS.
