    Among various water quality parameters for a successful aquaculture practice, Dissolved oxygen content in the water is one of the most important parameters, as the oxygen is a vital for all the organisms living in the water and having an aerobic type of respiration. The purpose of aeration is to increase the concentration of oxygen in the water. In scientific aquaculture practices, this is more critical because, often the rate of consumption of oxygen is much higher than the natural rate of replenishment of oxygen in the water through diffusion from atmosphere and photosynthesis of aquatic plants. Oxygen is one environmental parameter that exerts a tremendous effect on growth and production through its direct effect on feed consumption and metabolism and its indirect effect on environmental conditions.
