With a rapidly growing population and corresponding food demand, expansion and intensification of aquaculture is happening in Bangladesh at a fast rate. The aquaculture sector in Bangladesh is contributing to the nation’s economy, assisting in poverty alleviation and supplying necessary nutrition.

However, a vast quantity of waste generation in aquaculture, extensive use of antibiotic and chemicals have become a major cause of concern for the environment as well as public health. Thus, sustainable aquaculture solutions are urgently required to increase the output without compromising the quality and the environment. Moreover, the latest innovations should reduce the aquaculture dependence on water and land and provide socio-economic support to the farming community. Biofloc technology in Bangladesh has emerged as a promising solution that can help in achieving sustainability and other objectives.

An unpleasant odour is one of the most common restroom complaints at commercial spaces like restaurants, cafes, hotels and offices. More the people use the restroom, the more odour issues arise. A clean bathroom is necessary for good health and hygiene, and regular cleaning can help keep the restroom clean. However, it wouldn’t be enough to eliminate the bad odour in the restroom.
Different obnoxious odours can be found in different areas of the restroom, so locating the source is critical to eliminating them. To get rid of the odour, you may need to use a combination of solutions. The good news is that you can permanently eliminate and prevent commercial restroom odours by using organic cleaning products and toilet odour eliminators.

Aquaculture is one of the fastest-growing industries in the world today. For a large population living in different parts of the world, fish is the main source of nutrient, and thus it is integral to the dietary culture. However, different kinds of disease outbreaks and poor water quality have been plaguing aquaculture and affecting its production rate. Although conventional solutions like antibiotics are used, there is a growing concern about their extensive use and related adverse effects on the aquatic ecosystem and aquatic living beings.

Aquaculture is one of the fastest-growing sectors globally. Indonesia is among the top three largest aquaculture producers all across the world. As per the reports available, the country earned approximately USD 4.24 billion by exporting fish and fishery products to other nations in 2014.

Aquaculture can be defined as the process of cultivating, breeding and harvesting different aquatic organisms, mainly fish for human consumption. With increasing population, economic well-being, and rapid urbanization globally, the demand for food has grown exponentially. Fish which is an integral part of the diet for people all over the world, is key to food security in the future. It is an important nutrient source for people in developing countries as well. 

The use of anti-biotics in the aquaculture industry has been widespread and beneficial- but it has now progressed to overuse. Injudicious use of antibiotics in aquatic animals has led to antibiotic resistance. This was specially felt in the shrimp culture industry, where massive increase in production, massive overcrowding and unrestricted use of antibiotics led to emergence of anti-biotic resistant bacteria. This has, in turn, led to production crashes and losses to farmers engaged in aquaculture.
