Mathematical Modeling Suggests High Potential for the Deployment of Floating Photovoltaic On Fish Ponds

This article concerns a dynamic model that simulates the main biochemical processes in a milkfish pond that is subject to floating photovoltaic (FPV) cover. The study concludes that the installation of FPV(s) on fish ponds may have a moderately negative impact on fish production due to a reduction in dissolved oxygen levels. However, losses in fish production can be compensated for by gains in energy.
