Two trials 1st Trial-46 and 2nd Trial-64 hrs duration experiment in 8 out-door tanks 5 m3 were carried outwith similar design: 4 fish densities 0, 1, 5, and 10, 2 densities ofzooplankton high and low and 4 increasing levels of P and N concentrations ofnutrient enrichments. The consecutive changes of N and P concentrations weremeasured at 3 Trial 1 and 4 Trial 2 time intervals. It was found thatnutrient uptake of the entire community, which is the differences betweeninitial and final concentrations, was mostly affected by the initialenrichment. The ecological implications are discussed.
