There are many ways in which to aerate a body of water. Most of the available devices used today are covered here. The main objective for using an aeration system is to provide sufficient dissolved oxygen to the water column. Although fish consume oxygen from the water column, their excrement asserts a higher B.O.D. As feces and other organic litter builds up on the bottom, it forms sediment composed of a large percentage of organic material. Microorganisms, on the bottom of the pond, feed upon this organic matter and subsequently use up the available oxygen. During nighttime hours, plants and algae further reduce the available oxygen.
