In order to improve the water quality for the rearing of marine organisms a renovation of the storage tanks for seawater is essential. An appropriate filtration and disinfection procedure consisting of a high pressure sand filter, activated carbon filter and UV treatment will improve the quality of the seawater and hence be beneficial for the survival of the cultured organisms. In its turn this will improve the standardization and application of several experiments.
