Hach's newest aquacultural analysis package, the Hach Saltwater Aquaculture Test Kit, is designed to meet the demands of specialized saltwater applications.
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.

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.
When we consider the glut of plastic rapidly accumulating all over the world , it's easy to see the problem of pollution and disposal of substances that don't biodegrade. However, it's not always as apparent to us that plastic pollution also means a growing number of toxic chemicals in the environment, many of which can be harmful to ecosystems.
Plastic polymers and the products made from them are wildly diverse as to chemical properties, composition, and range of potential applications, although most plastics are made from petrochemicals. Throughout the very long lifespan of any given plastic product, the material may release various hazardous substances .Read More
Ocean acidification is a simple process that has complex effects. Increasingly acidic ocean waters create a cascading series of changes and problems for marine life, as each response to the changing conditions prompts other crises. Recent research from the University of Adelaide reveals a novel problem: baby fish will have more trouble finding and reaching shelter in the acidified oceans of our shared future, placing populations of various fish at risk.
Despite how they may seem to humans, oceans are not silent worlds. They are filled with all sorts of noise, from fish sounds and whale vocalizations to the sounds produced by different kinds of habitats.Read More
What does it take for a lake to go from being the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) poster child for cyanobacteria to genuinely being in recovery and improving year by year? It takes a concerted community effort, best water quality management practices, and patience. At least, that's what it's taken for those working to improve the water quality of Grand Lake St. Marys—and recent research proves that all of the effort and patience is paying off.
Stephen Jacquemin , associate professor of biology and research coordinator at the Wright State University Lake Campus, has been spearheading research efforts on the lake for several years, and those efforts go back more than a decade.Read More
