There still is need for research on gas supersaturation as it relates to gas bubble disease.  Better methods are required for both measurement and treatment of gas-supersaturated water.  We must understand more about physiological and ecosystem responses to high gas pressures if existing tolerance data for individual species are to be applied accurately to field or fish-cultural situations.  A better training program is needed for scientists, engineers, and facility operators involved in the monitoring and mitigation of gas-supersaturated waters.
