Works from my end, you'll need Adobe Acrobat on your machine to open it.

Good stuff Simon.
I'm an ex lab tech and environmental officer with a mining back ground.
When you turn your pump on oxygen levels will rise from 5 to 10ppm. The colder the temperature the slower it drops from 10 to 5 and below. Leaving a 600ml bottle of frozen water in the live well will slow down the drop. Fish use very little oxygen as compared to the losses that is lost due to water temperature.
Dissolved Oxygen, DO, in a dam could be at 1 or 2 at the surface, where we get the water from. But it's the pump that increases it to 10, about what comes from your tap at 21 degrees. It's the temperature that forces it back to 1or 2 very quickly, not the fish. As I've proven this by not adding fish to the live well at comps, water still loses DO. Next year I'm going to compare it to having fish in the well.
Small bottle of ice will save their lives.
