Summary: This report provides guidance on how to assess the suitability of source water for aquaculture. Aquaculture development worldwide is growing rapidly due to increasing demands for its products and limited production potential from inland and marine capture fisheries. The report review the different source of water that are or can be used for aquaculture and provides the current standards on acceptable physio-chemical, anthropogenic pollutant, and biological factors that affect the quality of source water. IT provides the available knowledge from a literature review on these factors and the potential impact on the health of various cultured organisms (mostly finfish and crustaceans) and upon the consumer due to the presence or bioaccumulation of toxins and pathogens that ban be present in water. The current state of knowledge on the acceptable limits of hazardous chemicals and pathogens in water used for fisheries and aquaculture and the acceptable concentrations accumulated in the tissue of aquaculture produces are also furnished. These standards vary somewhat among countries. The report also suggests a step-by-step process for evaluating source water quality for aquaculture that minimizes cost to the degree possible.
