Novel Combined Intensive Animal-Plant Aquaculture Systems for Application on Earth or in Space Bioregenerative Life Support Systems 1999-01-1989

The Closed Equilibrated Biological Aquatic System (C.E.B.A.S.) is a man-made aquatic ecosystem which typically consists of an aquatic animal habitat, an aquatic plant bioreactor, an ammonia oxidizing bacteria filter and a data acquisition/control unit. It is a precursor for different types of fish and aquatic plant production sites suitable for integration into bioregenerative life support systems. The results of two successful spaceflights of a miniaturized C.E.B.A.S version (the C.E.B.A.S. MINI MODULE) allow the optimization of aquatic food production systems which are already developed in the ground laboratory and open new aspects for their utilization as aquatic modules in space bioregenerative life support systems.
