author keywords: ultrasound; ballast water treatment; bacteria; phytoplankton; zooplankton
MeSH headings : Animals; Bacteria; Phytoplankton / physiology; Ships; Sonication; Zooplankton / physiology
TL;DR: The results suggest that stand-alone ultrasonic treatment systems for ballast water, operating at 19-20 kHz, may be effective for planktonic organisms >100 microm in size, but smaller planktonics organisms such as phytoplankton and bacteria will require treatment by an additional or alternative system.
