Catfish & Your Pond
How can I get catfish to reproduce in my pond? It sounds productive, but can spawn unwanted management issues. Catfish are notorious for quickly outgrowing small ponds. Just one successful hatch can tip the carrying capacity. Catfish are among the most flexible species to manage. Pond managers recommend stocking a few hundred and begin harvesting around two pounds. After removing 100, simply replace them for a continuous crop.
