bucket_ofh_country_tuff.jpgTransporting Your Fish

Garbage cans, stock tanks or 5 gallon buckets work best, depending on how many fish you've ordered. It's very important NOT to use city water, which may contain chlorine. Pond or lake water is best. Getting them to the pond as quickly as possible is vital. When transport is delayed, oxygen levels in the water can drop and temperatures can rise, causing the fish to become stressed.

Helpful Tips via the MO Department of Conservation

  • When stocking an older pond, determine what fish are already present and their condition. Stocking at densities too high can result in slow growth and poor fish populations.
  • Ponds that are too shallow are prone to fish kills caused by low oxygen conditions during winter ice over or hot weather drought conditions. Your pond should be at least 8 ft. deep in 5-10% of the pond area.
  • Your pond size determines the number of fish you'll want to stock with. You can calculate a rough estimate of the size by stepping off about 2.5 feet per step - the length of one shoreline, then stepping off the width of the pond at the dam. Multiply the length and width, divide by the number of square feet in an acre (43,560) and divide by two. This gives a close approximation of the pond size in acres.
  • Because adult bass can eat channel catfish less than 8" in length, ponds with an existing bass population should only be stocked with channel catfish that are larger than 8".
  • Fathead minnows are very helpful to ensure the fish population gets off to a good start. Newly introduced bass will have a food source as soon as they are large enough to capture it.
