I was browsing the Web tonight and came across this paper, thought a few might be interested.

Quick summary is higher oxygen levels improve growth rates and feed conversion rates. Meaning for the same amount of food the fish will put on more mass.

. The conclusion was that
oxygen saturation level has an effect on growth and feed conversion ratios of fish, and
in the case of Atlantic halibut, the growth rate is higher when the oxygen level is
between 80% and 120%. The feed conversion ratio for halibut was lower at 120%
oxygen saturation.

That sounds very interesting, Thx for sharing. (but can you maybe re-post the link, that one's not working).

Non of the lincs I have tried are working. Put this title in your search and should come up.
