FA152: The Role of Dissolved Oxygen in Hard Clam Aquaculture

Figure 1. Example of annual dissolved oxygen fluctuation at the Gulf Jackson lease area, Levy County, Florida, in 2003. Dissolved oxygen is shown as A) mg/L, and B) % saturation. During 2003, temperature fluctuated from 4°C (39.5°F) in January to 35°C (94.5°F) in July. As a consequence, graph A and B look different.
