Aquaculture has developed into a highly sophisticated field that uses scientific techniques to maintain the water where marine plants and animals live. The ability to optimize parameters affecting water quality is important for efficient production, and sensitive and accurate testing methods are essential.

The Hach saltwater aquaculture test kit is designed to meet this need. The kit includes chemicals and apparatus for the determination of 10 important water parameters and a rugged, armored thermometer for temperature readings. Packaged in a durable, portable case, the kit is well-suited for measurements in the field.

Acidity, alkalinity, carbon dioxide, dissolved oxygen, hardness, and salinity tests are conducted with the Digital Titrator - a compact, accurate dispensing unit that replaces a buret. Ammonia nitrogen, nitrite-nitrogen, and pH determinations are colorimetric tests. Results are obtained by matching the developed color of the sample to a pre-calibrated color disc.

With the Hach saltwater aquaculture test kit, the analyst can obtain the data necessary for making the right management decisions.

Questions & Answers
How do I determine the indicator color at the total alkalinity end point?
Mix the contents of one pH Buffer Powder Pillow of the desired pH with 50 mL of deionized water in a 250-mL Erlenmeyer flask and add one Bromcresol Green-Methyl Red Power Pillow. Use this color as a reference when titrating samples.
Why am I getting high readings when testing for Ammonia?
If the test yields unexpectedly high readings, the glassware may be contaminated. If contamination is suspected, continue the test procedure then rinse the tubes with the water to be analyzed and run the test again. This will allow the test reagents to clean the tubes and eliminate any contamination. Comparing the results of the two analyses should indicate if any interference was present.

From Assessment to Angler: Continual Research Ensures Lake Erie Remains a Beacon of Freshwater Fishing

Lake Erie is well known for its abundant recreational fishing. Anglers come from across the country to try their luck at the “walleye capital of the world” and search for other freshwater species, such as bass, perch, and steelhead trout.  As one of the world’s largest freshwater fisheries, much effort is made behind the scenes to maintain fishing opportunities for visitors to enjoy year after year, efforts that often go unnoticed by the public. One of the lake's most important economic and tourism centers is the city of Sandusky, home to the Sandusky Fisheries Research Station . As part of the Ohio Division of Wildlife, the unit serves as a base for assessing fish populations and managing harvest with partner agencies from around Lake Erie.

High Definition Stream Surveys: Informed Management in Local Waterways

When it comes to environmental monitoring, new stream survey methodologies have revealed a great deal about water quality and streambed conditions over time. Such information can be particularly important in leading restoration initiatives and prioritizing management decisions. Historically, stream surveys have been conducted at a single point along the stream, with data then extrapolated for miles up and downstream. However, Brett Connell, Hydrologist and Director of Sales at Trutta Environmental Solutions, started developing a more intensive stream survey format in his master's program in 2010 at the University of Tennessee.

Climate Change and Microplastics: Monitoring Lake Champlain

Most people go to Lake Champlain for its exceptional views and thrilling boating, but it’s also home to a wide variety of interesting aquatic research projects. From studying microplastics to thermal dynamics of the lake, Timothy Mihuc, director of the Lake Champlain Research Institute (LCRI) at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh (SUNY Plattsburgh), has spent his career studying aquatic ecosystems.  As an aquatic biologist, he’s the main investigator on Lake Champlain’s research studies while also managing their grants, employees, and their hands-on buoy work.  Over the years, LCRI has received a number of environmental grants that aid in its monitoring research.
