Assessment of Water Quality Using Macrobenthos as Bioindicator and Its Application on Abundance-Biomass Comparison (ABC) Curves Suci Wulan Pawhestria, Jafron.W. Hidayatb, Sapto P. Putroc

Structure of macrobenthos community has been used to determine various environmental disturbances both in farmingn (Sapto, 2007; Gonzalez and Jerez, 2011; Yokoyama et al,  2007) and industrial activities (Wijayanti, 2007; Mooraki, 2009; Amin et al, 2012). Macrobenthos are organisms that live in the mud, sand, gravel, stone or organic waste either on the basis of the aquatic environment which […]

Response of Trophic Groups of Macrobenthos to Organically Enriched Sediments: A Comparative Study between Temperate and Tropical Regions

Macrobenthic assemblages dominated by all polychaetes, they are Capitellidae, Cirratullidae, Lumbrineridae, Nephtyidae, and Spionidae at Site I (temperate region), owing to their nrelatively tolerance to organic enrichment, both at the farm sites and at control sites. Surface deposit feeders (SDF) dominated in abundance at both control and fish farm sites at Site I, whilst subsurface deposit feeders (SSDF) […]

Assessment Level of Severity of Environmental Disturbance Caused by Aquaculture Activities Using Abundance-Biomass Curves of Macrobenthic Assemblages

Abundance-Biomass comparison (ABC) was applied to assess the level of environmental disturbancen by the changes in the pattern of abundance and biomass of macrobenthic assemblages taken from various types of sediments. In the most sedimentary habitats, polychaetes usually dominate the structure and considered the most tolerant to stress associated with organic loading and low oxygen […]
