Mozambique Tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus) bacterial-algae mats in the cooling pool of Novovoronezh NPP nutrition

The formation of stable periphyton communities is undesirable for all types of hydrotechnical systems, especially functioning watercooling systems. To combat the development of biological fouling in the cooling ponds of nuclear power plants bioreclamation species are widely used, which include Mozambican tilapia. It was unintentionally brought into the cooling reservoir of the Novovoronezh nuclear power plant; however, it formed a stable and numerous population there.
