Stocking a Pond Requires Careful Evaluation
Ponds smaller than one acre have limited stocking options. Some folks want bluegill so kids enjoy numerous catches. Others enjoy eating crappie and just want that popular table fare. And then there’s the traditional catfish hole.
Stocking a pond isn’t a casual exercise. It requires careful evaluation. There must be uncompromising food chains so fish have an opportunity to reach full potential. Small ponds are sensitive ecosystems that must be monitored for best water quality. Fish must be harvested to prevent overpopulating and stunting. Otherwise, fish won’t grow big enough to catch and eat.
