Description 
Summary

Quantitative analysis of the relationships between the type of production and facilities in intensive mariculture and the hydrographic and ecological conditions was carried out, to assess environmental modifications and their effect on the health of fishes. A guide-model was developed to obtain the highest production in each facility in the best conditions.
