In BIAq enterprises, controlling the moisture load requires using air-conditioning equipment, ventilation, and controls.
And, the use of thermal blankets (commonly known as pool covers) to reduce evaporative water loss is a proven strategy in natatoriums that can be adapted for certain species in a BIAq enterprise.
Each of these waste streams offers additional opportunities for the integration of BIAq with other forms of enterprise (Figure 3, Page 18).
While the undigested solid waste stream of fish is a carbon-rich medium that could potentially serve as a substrate for cultivating methane-producing bacteria, even without bio-gas collection the waste heat generated from using bacterial digestion as a first step towards composting nutrient wastes might offset a portion of BIAq heating requirements.
BIAq operations might use systems to recapture the waste heat associated with carbon dioxide removal and apply it towards the fresh air intake of degasification columns.
For example, passive solar thermal heating could be used to help regulate the water temperature, control the indoor air humidity, or meet the electrical requirements of a BIAq enterprise.
In BIAq, thermal energy might be stored in a separate hot water storage tank.
BIAq systems should also include redundancy in the form of backup generators, which could conceivably run on biofuels made in fish wastewater.
The first three columns report the estimated coefficients for three different models with BIAQ score as the dependent variable.
Age led to significantly higher levels of body dissatisfaction only in the model with BIAQ as the dependent variable, whereas the number of children appeared to have no correlation with the body dissatisfaction.
