FST-267NP Shellfish hatcheries are the base of an emerging and profitable aquaculture industry. During a hatchery season, it is common for unknown water quality issues to impair production for short periods of time and, in extreme cases, for a significant portion of the production season. One useful approach is to collect discrete samples during production failure and/or to archive water samples throughout the hatchery season for later analysis if a production problem is experienced after the fact. Proper protocols for sampling and storage prior to analysis are required to obtain accurate and meaningful results.
