Essentially subtidal on Strangford Lough at present.</p></li><li><p>How do we monitor fish farmsSEPA has evolved a well defined and developed monitoring approachOriginated from work done in the early 1990s in Shetland which was based on: Annual surveysSingle photographic transectMonitoring approach is variable sometimes photographs or video are still used But in most cases monitoring is now based upon benthic sediment studies</p></li><li><p>How do we monitor fish farmsBenthicUsually minimum requirement for any site3 types of surveyAssessed for biological Animal speciesAbundanceCommunity structureand physio-chemical impactsMetalsCarbonSea lice meds residues</p><p>VisualAlternative if substrate unsuitable ie rockySee key species and habitatsAbundance frequencySubstrate typeCan be video or stillsMay be required for CAR applicationsSuitable for planning, EIA etc.Sometimes both are required</p></li><li><p>How do we monitor fish farmsParameters are assessed against published standards Farms are classified as: </p><p>SATISFACTORY pass the standardsBORDERLINE failure of one or two standards or a number of standards are close to the fail threshold. This is technically still a satisfactory outcome but highlights stress on the sea bed UNSATISFACTORY failure of quality standards</p><p>So that is how we monitor the benthos, where do we undertake this monitoring</p></li><li><p>Where do we monitor fish farmsWhere to judge impacts has also evolved over the yearsSEPA used to assess effects of farms based on a fixed impact zone - AZE.System now more sophisticated, based on model outputsGiving a site specific impact footprint</p></li><li><p>Where do we monitor fish farmsMonitoring undertaken on pre-determined transectStations close to farm plus referenceGrey shading = limit of AZE</p></li><li><p>Where do we monitor fish farmsIn addition to monitoring at fish farm sites, monitoring is undertaken in waterbodies for WFD purposesCheck overall waterbody statusExamines wider range of parameters Nutrients in water columnMacroalgaePlankton</p></li><li><p>Where do we monitor fish farmsCSTT ZonesZone A Near fieldZone B Far field</p></li><li><p>Where do we monitor fish farmsIn addition to monitoring at fish farm sites, monitoring is undertaken in waterbodies for WFD purposesCheck overall waterbody statusExamines wider range of parameters Nutrients in water columnMacroalgaePlankton</p><p>When does this monitoring occur</p></li><li><p>When do we monitor fish farmsTwo strategies, one for routine benthic surveys, one for sea lice medicine residuesBenthic impacts monitoring used to be annualSEPA relaxed requirements to: once per growth cyclein the summer of 2nd year of productionat the time of peak biomass</p></li><li><p>When do we monitor fish farmsSea lice medicine residues, monitored at time of peak sediment concentrationSo, for example for Slice:Peak concentration in sediment is at 118 days post treatmentMonitoring used to be required 110-130 days post treatmentNow relaxed to 80 -169 days post treatment</p></li><li><p>Site Residual Curves90 daysampling window</p><p>Calicide EQS Test - Code</p><p>Time stepChem fdChem faeMed feedSolids fdSolids faeTotal solidsCum at end of periodTotal chemCum at end of periodNoFeed waste3%</p><p>mg/d/farmmg/d/farmkg/d/farmkg/d/farmkg/d/farmkg/farmkg/farmmg/farmmg/farmdaysDig85%</p><p>1 to 168Days 1-70.0000.0000.00.00.00.00.00.0(equal to E23)0.07Water con9%</p><p>169 to 1032Days 8-430.0000.0000.00.00.00.00.00.0(equal to D27)0.036</p><p>1033 to 1896Days 44-790.0000.0000.00.00.00.00.00.0(equal to D34)0.036Dose0.05mg/kg</p><p>1897 to 2760Days 80-1150.0000.0000.00.00.00.00.00.0(on Load Calc.)0.036Conc food10mg/kg</p><p>2761 to 3624Days 116-1510.0000.0000.00.00.00.00.00.00.036</p><p>3625 to 4488Days 152-1870.0000.0000.00.00.00.00.00.00.036</p><p>4489 to 5352Days 188-2230.0000.0000.00.00.00.00.00.00.036</p><p>0.00.0</p><p>Total Emamectin Applied to Farm =0.000g</p><p>% of Emamectin Applied Which is Released Over 223 days =0.0%</p><p>Particle mass assigned assuming Number of particles is n and no fractionation of fd/fae in settling velocity dialog</p><p>SolidsmgChemugNo.of cages---&gt;20number of particles (n) =5</p><p>FdFaeFdFae</p><p>Days 1-700000N.B.
