AquariusAQUARIUS 2008: Windows Version

The AQUARIUS program is the first tool in market to evaluate closure rules for shellfish industry and to perform a series of “what-if” scenarios for various situations. AQUARIUS uses the rainfall data to simulate the open/close status of a given growing site for any length of time under two closure rules: one the current rule and the other proposed new rule. In next step, AQUARIUS uses the fecal coliform data from the given site to calculate the “NSSP 14/43” standards. In next step, AQUARIUS runs T-Tests statistical procedure to compare the fecal coliform level of “site open under current rule” versus “site open under new rule”. Based on the results of NSSP 14/43” standards and T-Tests, it rejects or accepts the new closure rule.
