RENO, Nev. (KRNV & -- The Nevada Department of Wildlife said three separate sets of tests have been done since February to confirm oxygen levels are back where they need to be.

Officials said oxygen levels have improved steadily at the marina since mid-winter. Annually NDOW stocks about twenty-six-thousand trout in the marina.

The stocking will begin at 10 a.m. Tuesday morning. Two NDOW fish trucks from Mason Valley hatchery will be unloading about eight thousand rainbow trout.

If a body of water does not get the required stirring, such as a creek or other body of water stirring the marina making current there is no making of oxygen. Just like a fish tank. If you don't have a filter in a fish tank, which usually creates current for the fish, there will be no oxygen. The fish will just stay at the top of the water sucking at the surface. Bad weather stirs up water as well making oxygen. That is why a few months ago I suggested something in the water that will create a current bubbling affect making oxygen. But I doubt anyone paid attention to my comments.

How can water become low in oxygen? After all, it is 2 parts hydrogen, 1 part oxygen, hence H2O?
