Abstract:
There was a positive correlation between the concentration of organic carbon and potential respiration as measured by carbondioxide evolution (R2 = 0.923) and oxygen consumption (R2 = 0.986) in soil samples collected from the bottoms of drained ponds.This finding supports the frequent use of organic carbon analysis as an indicator of sediment respiration rate under optimalconditions in commercial aquaculture facilities.
