Summary

This data set is associated with an administrative report submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM). The project goal was to determine the effects of hydrogen peroxide on the microflora of recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS). There are few aquaculture drugs approved for use in RAS and the CVM will evaluate findings from the study to determine if hydrogen peroxide would be safe to use in RAS.

Purpose

The data were collected to inform the CVM of the effects of hydrogen peroxide on microflora of biological filters in freshwater RAS. We tested a small-scale warmwater RAS with a drop bead biofilter and a commercial-scale coldwater RAS with a sand biofilter. Future researchers may test other biofilters to determine
