The role of aeration in pond management
 
Michael McGee, Charles Cichra
 
 

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.

 

In most pond culture operations, aeration offers the most immediate and practical solution to water quality problems encountered at higher stocking and feeding rates. Aeration may be broadly classified into two different applications, emergency aeration and maintenance aeration.

 

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