Aerating shrimp ponds in Thailand

The photo shows the aeration of a shrimp earthen pond using paddle wheels. The power of aerators (in horse power) and its positioning is important not only for providing sufficient air and so oxygen to farmed shrimp but also to create water circulation that direct pond sediments to settle in the center of the pond.

Note: We decided not to watermark the photos in order not to upset its clarity. However, we trust you will notify us if you wish to use a picture or more. This is expected and will be appreciated.
