Livewell oxygen generators for bass boats, Oxygenator® O2 Marine Technologies T-H Marine and FishO2™, T-H Marine and Keep A Live are electrical devices that make oxygen for livewells, bait tanks, bait fish and tournament bass.
The Oxygenator™ generates oxygen by electrolysis of water.
Livewell oxygen is generated with live electricity inside the livewell, D/C batteries are required.

FishO2 PSA oxygen generators filter oxygen out of the air A new generator can produce up to 90% oxygen. Oxygen % decreases with use.
Oxygen Enrichment – FIRE SAFETY
OXYGEN-RICH LIVEWELL ENVIRONMENT IS FOUND IN THE GAS SPACE BETWEEN THE WATER SURFACE AND THE LID IN A CLOSED LIVEWELL. This gas space commonly exceeds 24% oxygen.
Oxygen Mixture Classifications
The CGA defines oxygen-enriched mixtures or atmospheres as any mixture of atmosphere containing 24% oxygen or greater. The ignition reactivity precautions and handling rules for oxygen enriched environments 24% – 100% oxygen are the same.
24% Oxygen Concentration or Greater is Oxygen Enrichment
CAUTION: Oxygen enriched gas mixtures must be handled with all the precautions and care of pure 100% oxygen, the chemistry and fire hazard of oxygen are different than air environments.
Know the fire safety rules that apply to pure oxygen use and oxygen-rich environments… Oxygen is not Air.
