 2017 SPRING


        Triploid Grass Carp (White Amur) can be successfully used to control excessive amounts of pond vegetation as an alternative to chemicals, water shade and physical harvesting.  Stocking rates recommended vary – many people recommend a flat rate of 10 fish per acre of 10-12” size.

            Successfully managed ponds have 30-40% of pond area vegetated for fish habitat.  A POND DEVOID OF VEGETATION IS UNDESIRABLE; KEEP 30-40% of POND EDGE VEGETATED.  This provides suitable area for fish to spawn and also prevents shoreline erosion.

Factors involved in proper stocking include:

             1)  Size of pond surface area.

          2) Percentage of pond shallower than 8”.

             3) Percentage of pond vegetated in July-August

          4)  Dominant plant species (favored species include:

      Naiad, Leafy Pondweed and Large Leaf Pondweed.

      Less favored are:  Waterlily, Spatterdock, Milfoil, Cattails, Algae)
