Abstract

In the application of Biofloqua technology (Biofloc-Aquaponic), the addition of swamp bacteria can increase fish growth and affect survival, feeding efficiency and productivity of farmed fish, and also be environmentally friendly. The objective of this study is to determine the effectiveness of using Biofloc technology and floating aquaponics in increasing striped snakehead fish culture productivity using swamp probiotics. This study used a completely randomized design with three replicates and two treatments for rearing snakeheads using a floating aquaponics of water spinach system with Biofloc and a system with Biofloc only. Striped snakehead fish were kept in a pond with a density of 100 fish m-3 and molasses were added every week. The results of this study show that the aquaponic Biofloc system with probiotics from swamp can maintain the water quality of the rearing medium, increase the efficiency of fish feed, fish growth and survival rate. The integration of Biofloc and aquaponics technology with probiotic swamp starter can be used as an integrated aquaculture system with continuous vegetable production.
