FA152: The Role of Dissolved Oxygen in Hard Clam Aquaculture

Figure 3. Example of daily water temperature fluctuation at the Gulf Jackson lease area, Levy County, Florida, on October 24, 2003. Dissolved oxygen is shown as A) mg/L, and B) % saturation. On October 24, temperature fluctuated by only 2.5°C (4.5°F) and, therefore, the variation in % saturation due to temperature change was relatively small. As a consequence, graph A and B look similar.
