Live fish add excitement to any waterway, and there are several reasons to stock ponds and lakes with fish to keep a balanced aquatic ecosystem including:
- Increasing sport fish populations to handle higher levels of fishing in a particular lake or pond
- Introducing Triploid Grass Carp to reduce and control certain aquatic weeds
- Replacing them after a 'fish kill' - Have you had a fish kill in your pond or lake? Fish die as a result of a wide variety of natural and unnatural causes. They may die of old age, starvation, body injury, predation, stress, suffocation, water pollution, diseases, parasites, toxic algae, severe weather, cold water or other reasons. Lake aeration can reduce fish-kills due to many of these causes.
A few dead fish floating on the surface of a pond or lake is not necessarily cause for alarm. However, when large numbers of fish of all sizes are found dead and dying over a long period of time, there is cause for concern.
It is important to determine the causes of a fish kill and correct them before restocking your lake.
