Your pond can become a fishing paradise that you, your family and friends will enjoy for generations.
And the first step to making that fishing paradise is to know what kind of fish are inhabiting your pond now, and which kinds to consider for pond stocking.
An electrofishing survey is how you can investigate the existing fish population in your pond.
It’s a standard fishery management process for creating a fish inventory and answering questions like:
- Which species are present and how mature and large are they?
- Do you need to stock forage fish so other fish can grow larger?
- Are there any species that you do not want?
Electrofishing is safe and effective and does not harm fish.
At Lochow Ranch, we conduct electrofishing surveys with a custom boat uses state-of-the-art systems. These systems will briefly stun fish in your pond with a mild electrical current. Our experts then examine the fish to determine species, size, health and other characteristics. A survey can help you understand how the fish population has fared during winter months.
At the end you will have a baseline on the population in your pond. Then you can plan fish stocking to supplement the existing population and build the perfectly balanced ecosystem.
