Water temperature

Ambient water temperature is important for the survival of aquatic organisms. Most aquatic animals have adapted to living within a specific temperature range and do not tolerate extremes of heat or cold. In addition, temperature effects the amount of dissolved oxygen present in the water column, with cooler water being able to hold more oxygen. Generally, temperatures above the freezing point of water and below approximately 30 degrees Celsius (ºC) are best suited for aquatic organisms.
