Stocking your pond correctly can be one of the toughest aspects of owning a pond. With so
many fish species to choose from, it’s easy to make unsuitable decisions when deciding what to stock. Ensuring your body of water contains a diverse population of fish is an integral part of creating an environmentally balanced aquatic ecosystem. It is also important to consider your overall lake and pond management goals as well as which species will provide appropriate benefits to your pond or lake.
Our fisheries biologists at Triangle Pond Management can provide you with recommendations to stock your lake or pond with the correct species combinations, quantities, and sizes necessary to meet your fishery goals as quickly as possible. We keep these goals and your budget in mind when creating individual fish stocking plans to best utilize your time and resources.
If you have a stocked pond but would like to see an increase in the size of your fish, Spring is a great time to stock additional forage fish. Deciding on the right forage species to stock depends on available structure, water temperature and movement, predator species and
future management techniques. Our biologist can help you determine what forage species will best suit the pond and incorporate them into the overall vision of growing larger fish.
If you are looking to stock a pond and want excellent fishing for children, we have fish stocking plans available which include fish feeders and artificial fish habitats as well. Many lakes and ponds in our area tend to face the problem of nuisance aquatic vegetation and could benefit significantly from stocking triploid grass carp. These fish act as a biological control agent against unwanted vegetation and can help reduce the headache associated with problematic aquatic weeds.
