They are characterised by long and complex food webs. There are very large energy losses in this food chain. Energy transfer from one level to another in the food chain is in the order of 10% as a ‘rule of thumb’. The following is a hypothetical example of six levels in a food chain: 1. Sun’s energy + inorganic nutrients → 2. g. flagellates and diatoms) → 3. g. copepods, invertebrate larvae, bivalves) → 4. g. fish larvae, planktivorous fish) → 5. Juvenile fish → 6. Large carnivorous fish. 001% This is a very crude approximation, but it is clear that the final stage of this food chain, for example the large carnivorous fish, has magnitudes less energy (and food) available to it than lower levels in the food chain.

Ponds. 5 m deep) and are secured to stakes driven into the bottom of shallow ponds. The cages are located within a very ‘friendly’ environment and are accessed easily from the pond wall or a floating walkway. 2. Lakes, estuaries or protected bays. These cages tend to be much larger (10–40 m diameter) and are secured to the bottom of the waterway by anchoring lines. The forces associated with these environments are greater than those found in ponds as a result of tidal currents, wind-generated waves (<1 m) and swells.
