Water temperature in aquaculture

In general, water temperature cannot be controlled, so aquaculture operations must be timed to correspond to temperature. Measurements are critical for efficient operations.

Effects of mechanical aeration on evaporation rate, water temperature

This study compared water temperature and water loss by evaporation in control ponds and in ponds aerated with surface aerators at four different aeration rates. Increased aeration rate increases the evaporation rate, which in turn lowers water temperature.

Examining water temperature in aquaculture

Water temperature is a key water quality variable in aquaculture because it influences other variables, defines growing seasons and dictates what species can be grown at a particular location.
