Aquaculture pond aeration is vital to the vigorous health and vitality of fish. Without enough oxygen, fish become stressed and their growth rate slows. Additionally, the lack of oxygen at the bottom of the pond will allow the build-up of fish waste and other organic nutrients. As this material decays, it leads to the build-up of toxic gases which are harmful to the fish. Paddlewheels and surface aerators do not address these problems or correct them.
Complete aquaculture pond aeration of the bottom through the use of an aquaculture recirculating system and toxic gas removal enables oxygen breathing microorganisms and insects to feed on organic sediment and organic waste( just as a snail does in an aquarium.) Once oxygen levels are restored using this aquaculture equipment the entire water column and toxic gases at the bottom are removed. Fish then feed on the insects at the bottom.
Turbulence produced by conventional aquaculture equipment re-suspends muck and mixes toxic gases and anoxic water into the water column. The CLEAN-FLO Continuous Laminar Flow Inversion and Oxygenation type aquaculture recirculating system restores and maintains aerobic conditions in water bodies by employing natural non-turbulent inversion through aquaculture pond aeration from bottom to top. Oxygen levels remain consistently high, water quality improves and organic sediment and waste is converted into food for fish, producing rapid fish growth.
Supplementation with Bio-Booster will further increase fish health and growth rates. Bio Booster is formulated to produce accelerated diatom growth which in turn stimulates zooplankton growth – a beneficial food for fish. Diatoms are the primary food source at the base of the fish food chain. Grow diatoms, grow fish! Diatoms also absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen by photosynthesis, all benefits in any aquaculture pond.
