There are, however, characteristics of different intensities of culture that are not specific to groups, and the consideration of culture intensity will be based on these. Intensity of culture will broadly consider the inputs into the system to maintain adequate growth of the cultured organisms.

More on these techniques and their application to bivalve mollusc culture can be found in Chapter 23. g. seaweeds and sponges, may be grown tied to lines stretched above the substrate. 3 INTENSITY OF AQUACULTURE Intensity of aquaculture describes the various densities of organisms per unit volume or per unit area.
