Water quality in the Southern Comino Channel
|Data holding centre||Malta Centre for Fisheries Sciences|
|Time period||1996 : January; April; May; July; August; October - December 1997 : January; February; April; December|
Data consists of hydrochemical measurements at a number of control sites within and in the vicinity of the fish farm situated in the Southern Comino Channel.
Ammonium and ammonia concentration parameters in water bodies; Chlorophyll pigment concentrations in water bodies; Dissolved oxygen parameters in the water column; Raw temperature and/or salinity instrument output; Dissolved inorganic nitrogen concentration in the water column; Dissolved total or organic phosphorus concentration in the water column
Dissolved gas sensors; pH sensors
Data consists of water quality observations together with some basic physical measurements collected on a routine basis at the fish farm site in the S.Comino Channel. This forms part of the monitoring programme to check on the possible impacts of aquaculture in the marine environment. The parameters were measured on a monthly basis at depths of 1, 10 and 20m.
