Shellfish farmers at Two Docks Shellfish in Ruskin, Fla., are saying they’re tight on clam supply. “There just aren’t as many clams in the world as there should be right now due to those two storms, and that has a series of downstream effects, revenue, employment, and things like that,” said Dr. Aaron Welch, president of Two Docks Shellfish.

  2. Poor or quickly changing water quality can causes stress in fish which may lead to poor survival rates.
  3. Climbing on the truck to take measurements with a handheld meter can be hazardous for the technician.

Controlling oxygen automatically can prevent fish loss, as well as reduce the stress on the fish. Find out more about the InWater monitoring system for live fish transport trucks, please visit www.inwatertech.com » Learn more
