General Considerations and Assumptions

These recommended stocking rates will vary depending on the condition of the pond and the climate of the area. These numbers take into account fish that will be removed from the pond by predators. The size of fish is determined by factors such as existing fish, mode of transport to the pond and the amount the pond owner wants to invest in fish. If the pond has no existing fish it is advisable to stock larger numbers of small fish. This will allow the pond owner to invest as a lower price for fish, transport is less expensive and the fish can be stocked at the same size to minimize predation. If small numbers are stocked, these fish may grow to a large size which forces the pond owner to stock larger fish in subsequent years to avoid predation from the initial fish stocked.
