Using of the natural zeolite clinoptilolite in transporta-tion of fingerling trout (Oncorynchus mykiss, W., 1792)

One of the most important problems in live transport systems is ammonia accumulation be-cause of indicating harmful action. In removing nitrogenous compounds from aquatic envi-ronment, zeolites of clinoptilolite species which have the capacity of holding ammonium nearly 90% of measurement have attracted attention as an economic and efficient material. Cli-noptilolite has unique features such as ion exchange, adsorbing, molecular sieve, dehydration and catalysis which is a mineral having an infrastructure of being used as a regulator of some water parameters in aquaculture efficiently and economically. The aim of this study, the effect of ammonium sorption by the natural zeolite clinoptilolite ((Na0.5 K2.5) (Ca1.0 Mg0.5) (Al6, Si30) O72. 24 H2O) in transportation of fingerling trout (average 5.5 g±0.01) is investigated. The experiment was carried out with three groups and triplicate in polyethylene bags (Control 0 g/l, Group I 7 g/l, Group II 14 g/l clinoptilolite). Water/oxygen rate was 1/4, temperature was 16 °C. Water parameters was recorded at the end of the experiment and ammonium sorption by clinoptilolite treatments were significantly (p
