Environmental factors affecting fish and shrimp health
Fish and shrimp’s health in hatcheries may be affected by various living or non-living agents in their environment. Many infectious organisms such as bacteria, fungi, viruses or parasites may cause disease to your farmed species. The outside factors include the environmental conditions and water is the principal component, which can compromise their health.
Therefore, it is crucial to control the critical water quality parameters, such as oxygen, un-ionized ammonia, nitrite, free carbon-dioxide or pH. However your hatchery’s performance can also be affected by water hardness or temperature.
