Details

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

| Ask a Question
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 Scrub-Jay DNA to Cycles of Carbon, Water and Fire: Archbold Biological Station Offers A Deep Look at Conservation

The oil industry is sometimes viewed as an enemy of conservation. But it was the oil industry that enabled the founding of Archbold Biological Station , one of the members of the Organization of Biological Field Stations (OBFS) . Descended from John Dustin Archbold, President of Standard Oil of New Jersey, Richard Archbold used his private wealth to further the cause of field research and education. He became an explorer, aviator and perhaps most importantly, a research associate with the American Museum of Natural History. He established Archbold Biological Station in 1941 after the father of his friend Donald Roebling (from a famous family himself), donated 1,058 acres of pristine land in the heart of Florida to further Archbold’s research dreams.

Central Lake Superior: Arctic Testbed and Autonomous Proving Ground

This summer, Michigan Technical University unveiled a new Marine Autonomy Research Site , located at the waterfront Great Lakes Research Center . The site is part of an ongoing push to advance autonomy in the marine industry and to help take humans out of the equation when research on the water is dull, dirty and/or dangerous. Dr. Guy Meadows , director of the Great Lakes Research Center (GLRC), spoke to EM about the site. “The project is an initiative of the eight Great Lakes Governors and two premiers of Canada,” explains Dr. Meadows. “The goal is to try and leverage autonomy in the land sector into both the aviation and the marine sector, and we are trying to play a role in that marine sector.

Buttonbush Swamps, Bald Eagles, Soras and More: Ashland University’s Black Fork River Wetlands Environmental Studies Center Showcases Wetlands Wildlife and Habitats

Growing from a 38-acre purchase in 1998 to 298 acres in 2004 to the 305 acres it encompasses today; the Black Fork River Wetlands features habitats not found just anywhere, including buttonbush swamp, swamp forest, marsh, riparian corridor and uplands habitats. Beavers make their homes there, as well as trumpeter swans, bald eagles, soras and sandhill cranes. While it may seem picturesque and undisturbed, it is in fact embattled due to human activity on all sides. “It’s a multi-use area,” says Jenna Binder, a visiting Assistant Professor in Ashland University’s Biology and Toxicology Department. “It’s strongly influenced by the heavy agriculture in this area of Ohio. Oil and gas industry fracking is also being done in the area.
