The inserted picture shows the as carried out in a tilapia fish pond located at Felda Titi, Jelebu, Naegen, Seubilas, Malaysia. The aeration performed in this pond is known as “aero-tube system” which has been tried in this particular pond.

The system in this type of aeration is designed to create fine air bubbles throughout the aeration tubing. These bubbles rise-up slowly in the water column and because of its higher surface area, higher efficiency in oxygen transfer is achieved and so higher dissolved oxygen levels. It has been claimed that this technology leads to a significant reduction in the energy consumption and so the costs.
