Dissolved Oxygen: Optical vs. Galvanic

Dissolved oxygen (DO) is the most critical parameter measured in fish culture. Galvanic (electrochemical) probes have been an industry standard for many years, but as the technology develops, the cost of optical probes is coming down and they are becoming a viable option.
