3 reasons to automatically control DO levels while transporting fish

  1. Transport is stressful for fish. Ideal oxygen levels will help mitigate this stress.
  2. Poor or quickly changing water quality can causes stress in fish which may lead to poor survival rates.
  3. Climbing on the truck to take measurements with a handheld meter can be hazardous for the technician.

Controlling oxygen automatically can prevent fish loss, as well as reduce the stress on the fish. Find out more about the InWater monitoring system for live fish transport trucks, please visit www.inwatertech.com » Learn more
