Note(s): The major changes taking place in captive bodies of seawater are decreases in alkaline reserve, pH, and dissolved oxygen. Inorganic nitrogen compounds, carbon dioxide, phosphates, dissolved organic compounds, and bacteria increase in concentration. Methods which have been applied to reduce the rates of these changes include nitrification by bacteria, adsorptive filtration, ozonation, ultraviolet light, protein foaming, ion-exchange resins, autotrophic buffering systems, and dilution of the culture medium. Improvements in aquaria are dependent on behavioral studies, direct transfer of deep-water forms, increased knowledge of organic fractions in the culture medium, selective means for removal of inhibitory compounds, and improved artificial media. A computer-controlled system is envisioned as a developmental goal.This manuscript may be cited as: Goldizen, V. C. (1973). Aquaria: needs and aspirations.
