How come that you talk about biosecurity and you are siphoning the faeces and wastes of fish directly on the ground of a bioesured lab?

Biosecurity procedures are/should be as simple as following procedure manuals.
The best of planning still comes down to human actions, this video is really good, this facility looks really good, it appears to have a place for everything & everything in it's place, except our gowned speaker PICKS up shoes of visitor & places shoes into clothing rack WITHOUT ANY FURTHER DECONTAMINATION EFFORTS. There for bypassing biosecurity protocols. As for siphoning faeces & food wast onto floor to be tramped around, should have been into a bucket at least.
NB- Maybe editing remove the hygene part & our presenter is being put under the microscope unfairly.

The shoes of the visitor were put in a clothing rack, boots and labcoat provided to the visitor and before entering the facilities (the clothing rack is just in the door of the facilities) the visitor and everybody pass throught a footbath (pediluvio in Spanish) full with chlorine. So the shoes of the visitor were not cleaned because other shoes (boots) were provided before entering and because with that other boots the visitor pass through chlorine. Do you think that disinfection is not enough?
We haven't show it in the vídeo but before entering any room (especially in larval rearing and pathology rooms) there is also a hand sanitization dispenser.
In the case of siphoning the floor is then completely washed with freshwater and chlorine.

How do you prevent microbial contamination from water? Is it appropriate to dispose of waste directly on the ground?

Yes, I will be happy to know.
