The water supplied to the fish ponds must not contain pollutants and toxic substances detrimental to fish life. The composition of the feed water should be subject to quality analysis, including the following:
- oxygen content
- pH value
- total salts content
- ammonia content
- free CO2 content
- phenols, oil and tar content.
The water quality analyses should be such as to enable prediction of the interactions between the soil and the feed water.
