Abstract

Location: Reed Hall of Science Room 214 & Zoom (pass code: 845938)

Aquaculture is a great way to provide an income and food source to many agrarian communities in Central America. A large factor in successful aquaculture is proper aeration for the high-density fish populations. A properly aerated pond results in a large quantity of dissolved oxygen (DO), which stimulates growth and reproduction, while a poorly aerated pond fails to support a healthy population. The goal of the Olivet Nazarene University Fish Farming Aerator project is to design and construct an energy-efficient aerator intended for implementation in an exploratory tilapia pond at Misión el Faro in Punta de Palma, Guatemala. The project sponsor, AgInno Institute, has access to a tilapia pond, and is planning on building more ponds in the near future. The tilapia pond is operated by local low-income members of the community, for the purpose of providing the operators with an additional income source.
