Due to the necessity to protect the surrounding environment and very specially the inner and coastal waters, were studied different wastewaters systems for their application in facilities without treatment plants. In the very special case of the fishing industry, where only 14 establishments (from 42 active up to the moment) have treatment system, one requires of the study of different alternatives that contribute with the diminishing of the polluting load until permissible values. By such reasons, in addition to the study that was doing to explore and propose a treatment system by high rate pond with the microalgae Chlorella spp., empirical and kinetic equations were calculated using biochemical oxygen demand values, with the objective to facilitate the prediction of the system efficiency, as well as its design. For the calculation of the empirical equations, the applied and removed organic superficial loads and the applied and removed organic volumetric loads were taking into consideration. On the other hand, it was verified that the first order equation for a batch system adjusts to the purifying process that took place into the system, with the average value for the kinetic constant of the process of 0,47 d -1. The results obtained in this study demonstrate the possibilities having the high rate ponds for the wastewater treatment of the Cuban fishing industry and the knowledge of some design parameters.
