Abstract

Sewage water, treated or untreated, municipal or otherwise, contains potential
nutritional resources. Chemically it is difficult as well as uneconomical to extract
them. These can be eaten by fish directly or through food chains, and thus can be
converted to animal protein naturally. Pisciculture today is mainly dependent upon
fish- meal, which is a protein source. This fish- meal is expensive and not readily
available at all places. Fish and algae can extract the protein and nutrients from the
sewage water and in the process also treat the sewage water. In Kolkata the wastewater
aquaculture system receives about 55,000 cumec of untreated sewage per day
and an estimated production of Carp and Tilapia is seven tones per hectare (East
Kolkata wetlands Management 2007). The main potential of wastewater-fed
aquaculture and its major advantage over conventional wastewater treatment is the
large diversity of marketable products and therefore broad possibilities of income
generation. The combination of the two income generating options (wastewater
treatment and biomass production) is a very interesting feature
