Shane's World Catfishology A catfish keepers guide to dissolved oxygen. The importance of dissolved oxygen levels in the aquarium is a topic that is not given much thought by most aquarists and is rarely discussed in the aquarium literature. Studies have shown that a concentration of 5 mg/L DO is necessary for optimum fish health. A significant negative relationship between survival, length, daily weight gain, standard growth rate, and biomass of juveniles of silver catfish per tank with waterborne NH3 levels was found at.

difference in survival rate was noticed among the feeding regimes. The body composition of African catfish fingerlings is also influenced by the different frequency of feeding. Based on the growth performance, cost the study suggests that twice/day feeding regimen is the best to obtain the highest growth rate in the African catfish fingerlings. channel catfish of the NWAC strain 3 male blue catfish of the D&B strain) were stocked in ha ponds at 17, fish/ha with an initial mean weight of 66 g and fed for d.

Survival and growth rate of channel catfish as a function of dissolved oxygen concentration.   Accurate data for the concentration of dissolved oxygen in surface and ground waters are essential for documenting changes in environmental water resources that result from natural phenomena and human activities. Dissolved oxygen is necessary in aquatic systems for the survival and growth of many aquatic organisms and is used as an indicator of. Dissolved carbon dioxide concentrations of 5 to 10 mg/L are common on summer mornings in catfish ponds and appear to be well tolerated by channel catfish. They can survive in waters containing up to at least 60 mg/L dissolved carbon dioxide provided dissolved oxygen concentrations are high.
