The Hach FF-1A Freshwater Aquaculture Test Kit utilizes drop count titration and color disc methods to deliver fast, accurate results for fish production. Maintaining good water quality is essential for profitable fish production. In many cases, the availability and cost of "crop" insurance is directly related to testing programs. This kit utilizes drop count titration and color disc methods to deliver the fast, accurate results you need.

Titration Methods

    • Alkalinity (0–100, 0–400 mg/L CaCO3)
    • Carbon dioxide (0–100 mg/L CO2)
    • Chloride (0–150, 0–600 mg/L Cl–)
    • Dissolved oxygen (0–4, 0–20 mg/L O2)
    • Hardness, total (0–342 mg/L CaCO3)

Color Disk Methods

    • Ammonia (0–3.0 NH3–N)
    • Nitrite (0–0.4 mg/L NO2–N)
    • pH (4–10 pH units) Observation Method
    • Supersaturation: (Qualitative)

Includes seventeen reagents, one measuring tube, one color comparator box, one BOD bottle, one mixing bottle, one dropper, two plastic tubes, three color discs, one thermometer, instructions, and a carrying case.

Questions & Answers
Do you offer a reagent refill kit?
We do not offer a refill kit, however, refill reagents are available individually under the Accessories tab.
What are the 9 basic water quality parameters that can be measured by this kit?
The Hach Freshwater Aquaculture test kit measures for ammonia, nitrite, pH, temperature, alkalinity, carbon dioxide, chloride, dissolved oxygen and hardness.
When testing for Ammonia, my sample has a slight yellow color. Is my sample contaminated?
No, the Nessler reagent gives even pure water a slight yellow color. This small color is negligible unless measuring a small amount of Ammonia. When measuring a small amount, add 3 drops of reagent to 5mL of ammonia-free water to use instead of the untreated sample in the left top opening.
When testing for carbon dioxide, what is the ratio between carbon dioxide and Sodium Hydroxide drops?
Each drop of Sodium Hydroxide Standard Solution is equivalent to 5mg/L of Carbon Dioxide.

Soundscapes of the Solar Eclipse: Citizen Science Supporting National Research

On April 8, 2024, millions of people around the world had their eyes glued to the sky to witness a historic cosmic event. The total solar eclipse captured the headlines and the minds of many who became eager to gaze at the heavens as the sky went dark for a few minutes. However, not everyone used their sense of sight during the eclipse, some were listening to the sounds of the natural world around them as the light faded from above. The Eclipse Soundscape Project is a NASA-funded citizen science project that focuses on studying how the annular solar eclipse on October 14, 2023, and the April 8, 2024 total solar eclipse impacted life on Earth.  The project revisits an initiative from the 1930s that showed animals and insects are affected by solar eclipses.

Applied Research and Innovative Solutions: Creating CHNGES at Western Kentucky University

Long-standing environmental monitoring programs have the power to support a large number of research initiatives and policy changes—however, actually starting these networks can prove challenging. Not only is starting the program difficult, but keeping things operational for decades to come has also been challenging for environmental professionals hoping to make an impact with applied research. Jason Polk, Professor of Environmental Geoscience and Director of the Center for Human GeoEnvironmental Studies (CHNGES) at Western Kentucky University, is all too familiar with this process.

Combating Water Insecurity in Saskatchewan with Real-Time Data

The prairies of Saskatchewan can be described as one of the least water-secure parts of Canada, making water quality monitoring essential for informed resource management in a region already facing water insecurity. While natural physical properties worsen some of the poor water quality conditions in the region, others are connected to land use. Having grown up spending summers on the shores of Lake Huron, Helen Baulch, an associate professor at the School of Environment and Sustainability at the University of Saskatchewan , has always been dedicated to the protection of water resources. Looking back fondly at her childhood playing along the shore, Baulch also recalls the invasion of quagga mussels during her teenage years and watching the lake change as a result.
