The Carrying Capacity and Suitability of the Menzelet Reservoir (Kahramanmaras-Turkey) for Trout Culture in Terms of Water Quality

H.M. Buyukcapar and A. Alp

Abstract:
The aim of this study was to determine carrying capacity of Menzelet Reservoir and evaluate its suitability for trout culture in cage. The study was carried out at 5 different stations in the reservoir from December 2004 to October 2005. Some of the parameters (temperature, pH, secchi depth and dissolved oxygen) were measured in the field but phosphorus was analyzed in the laboratory. The Dillon and Rigler`s phosphorus budget model was applied in order to estimate carrying capacity of the reservoir. The carrying capacity of the lake was estimated to be 6998 t/year. The results of the study indicated that trout culture in cage can be employed in a period between October and April when Menzelet Reservoir has a suitable condition in terms of water quality.
