Ammonia can occur naturally from the decaying of organic matter, but it is also produced in large quantities by humans. It is also used in fertilizers, and in the production of plastics, pharmaceutical and petrochemicals.
Although at low concentrations, ammonia is generally harmless, at high concentrations ammonia will cause damage to vegetation and is an irritant to the eyes and nose. Ammonia is incredibly toxic to aquatic life, so ammonia monitoring is essential for aquaculture applications.
