Aquaculture


Water quality is a critical factor in modern intensive fish farming management. Impaired water quality can not only directly cause mortality, but more often, it also stresses aquatic species and makes them more susceptible to infectious diseases. Optimal water quality varies by species and must be monitored to ensure survival and healthy growth. In addition, the quality of water in fish farming systems can significantly affect the costs associated with getting  products to the market. Water quality parameters that are commonly monitored in the aquaculture industry include temperature, dissolved oxygen, pH, ammonia, nitrites, and toxic algae. Depending on the culture system, carbon dioxide, chlorides, and salinity may also be monitored. Some parameters such as alkalinity and hardness are fairly stable, but others like dissolved oxygen and pH fluctuate daily. It is very important to establish a test strategy that is suitable for your particular situation.
