Each type of aerator has advantages and disadvantages. The combination of paddlewheel aerators and propeller-aspirator-pump aerators can be particularly effective in deep ponds. Diffused-air systems are most appropriate for small ponds. The amount of aeration can be increased as feeding rate increases to conserve energy. Aeration in shrimp ponds usually can be reduced from mid-morning until early evening. Research has demonstrated that considerable energy can be saved by using aerator automation systems.
