Oxygenating pond plants are plants that grow partially or entirely underwater. During photosynthesis, these plants release oxygen into the water.
Fish require dissolved oxygen to survive. In fact, ponds need to maintain an oxygen level of 6 parts per million (ppm) to support most aquatic life. Most species of fish will die at oxygen levels below 3ppm.
