The Importance of Water Quality in Aquaculture

Whether fish are raised for commercial sale, personal consumption or sport, aquatic plant populations can be managed within a system to optimize fish production.

Applied Biochemists helps find a balance in managing aquatic plants to provide cover for fish, without the overgrowth that often stunts fish growth.

Algae in Fisheries Causes Oxygen Depletion

Algae growth in fisheries can critically deplete dissolved oxygen concentrations and should be managed carefully. Summerkill or winterkill of fish is an all-too-frequent result when algae blooms are not carefully managed. Some off-flavors in fish flesh have also been attributed to algal growth. In addition, environmental stress caused by excessive plant growth may make fish more prone to disease and parasitic infestation.
