Effects of Shrimp Aquaculture on the Quality of Upland Pond Soil Indicating by Microbial FAME and Enzyme Activity*

With the rapid expanding of shrimp aquaculture, upland ponds have been built extensively along the sea coast in southern China. In order to evaluate the influence of shrimp aquaculture on soil quality, soil samples were collected from a typical site, Baimajing of the Hainan Island. Analyses of fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) and soil enzyme activities were done to monitor and compare the changes in soil microbial community compositions and activities. The pH and salinity of upland pond soil were significantly higher than control, but organic matter and total N showed adverse pattern (P<0.05). The fatty acid of bacteria, fungi and actinobacteria declined significantly in upland pond soil, even the fungi decreased sharply (P<0.05) and actinobacteria could not be detected. The three enzymatic activities (dehydrogenase, urease, and acid phosphatase) also decreased significantly (P<0.05). These results showed that the soil would be degraded after long-term shrimp aquaculture. Fig 2, Tab 4, Ref 29
