The pond shown in the photo has an acreage of 2.5 acres. The aeration in such system depends on fresh air that is pushed into the pipes by an electricity-operated blower and it comes out in small bubbles through aero-tubes that are fixed at pond bottom. The fish stocked in this particular pond belongs to Indian Major Carps (Labeo Rohita, catla catla). Typically, this aerator system is turned on in the second half of the night. It is claimed that fish production in aerated ponds were almost double as compared to other ponds without aeration.
