Eutrophication of water bodies occurs worldwide because of growing industry, agriculture and aquaculture, and can lead to mass development of cyanobacteria. To protect possible consumers from adverse health effects caused by these toxins, it is necessary to know the pathway of the toxins in the natural food web and within aquaculture and terrestrial agro-ecosystems. As the reservoir has multiple functions, an integrated use of the water is necessary, linking aquatic and terrestrial environments. The overall objective is to develop a sustainable purification system, which works in a biphasic way, and to reduce the pollution and eutrophication of the environment by introducing a sustainable aquaculture technology. Reservoir water will be purified for drinking water and spray irrigation, and aquaculture wastewater will be purified before it is send back into the reservoir.
