Pond stocking done right
When selecting fish for pond stocking, it’s important to consider your long-term goals for your lake or pond and its condition and surroundings.
What fish will work best in your body of water involves many variables, including your goals, the size of the lake and other factors. Very small ponds under one acre have special considerations to take into account, and so do very large lakes of many acres. They must be stocked and managed in different ways and present distinct challenges.
It’s also important to evaluate the sustainability and impact of introducing non-native species and species that aren’t well adapted to an area.
Our pond stocking professionals will provide you with expert guidance and advice that aligns with your fishery goals and conditions.
