FA152: The Role of Dissolved Oxygen in Hard Clam Aquaculture

Figure 2. Example of monthly dissolved oxygen fluctuation at the Gulf Jackson lease area, Levy County, Florida, in October 2003. Dissolved oxygen is shown as A) mg/L, and B) % saturation. During the month of October, temperature fluctuated by only 6°C (10.8°F) and, therefore, the variation in % saturation due to temperature change was relatively small. As a consequence, graph A and B look similar.
