Ice Eaters help to maintain healthy fish and aquatic stocks in your water area during the winter months by allowing oxygen to enter the ice-free waters. The Ice Eater’s steady thrust moves and aerates the water to create an ice-free area to absorb oxygen and encourage the natural decomposition of organic matter and pollutants, helping the overall health of fish and other living organisms. Ice Eaters can also be used to direct water flow so that debris and unwanted vegetation are funneled to one area, simplifying its removal and cleanup.
