Frequently Asked Questions

Should I stock fish every year?

Depending on your fish populations, it may be a good idea to supplement individuals to promote genetic diversity and overall population health.

Should I harvest fish every year?

Yes! Most people under harvest their fish, which over time can lead to fish stunting and additional issues with vegetation and pond quality.

When is the best time to stock fish?

The best time to stock is in the spring. However, at Aquatic Pros, we have the resources and knowledge to help fish thrive whenever you are ready to stimulate your fish populations!

What species should I stock?

The decision of what to stock is highly dependent on the goals of the landowner. We generally recommend starting with 3 layers on the food chain. For example, we would start a new pond with fathead minnows, bluegill, and largemouth bass. Call today to learn more about what species we provide and how many to stock!
