Benefits to Fish Stocking

lake and pond managementAt Lake Doctors, we utilize the practice of fish stocking for many aquatic reasons while we perform our lake and pond management services. Fish stocking is the raising of fish in a controlled area, such as an incubator, to release them into waterways, such as lakes and ponds, to help populate the existing body of water. Below we list the many benefits to fish stocking.

  • Environmentally Balanced

Ensuring your body of water contains a diverse population of fish is an integral part of creating an environmentally balanced lake and pond. It is important to consider what fish are native to your area and will provide appropriate benefits to your lakes. Our comprehensive aquatic services can help identify your specific needs.

  • Help Maintain Weed Problems

Lakes that suffer from problematic weeds can benefit significantly from an integrated aquatic management program that combines herbicide application and fish stocking to help eliminate harmful weeds. Stocking your lakes and ponds with Triploid Grass Carp is a great way to naturally remove specific weed problems.

  • Recreational Use

For the fisherman in all of us, stocking your bodies of water with fish is a great way to ensure you catch something! The Sunshine Bass is a great fish to have in your lakes for a large catch that is sure to impress your friends.
