The goal of most fish farmers is to maximise production and profits while holding labour and management efforts to the minimum. Risk of fish kills, disease outbreaks, poor water quality, and reduced feed conversion often result when efforts to increase production are unsupported by improved management strategies.

The article will also go through emergency and maintenance aeration along with a comparative aeration chart.
