When it comes to vegetation control in your pond, grass carp are a cost effective, efficient solution to many types of problem vegetations. To achieve desired results these fish should be stocked at a rate of 10 per acre of vegetation, or increase this rate by 50% in spring fed or otherwise clear water impoundments where sun rays penetrate much deeper than normal. These fish are available on our route trucks or for special delivery.
The Grass Carp will not reproduce, or harm the reproduction of other fish in the pond. They eat 3 times their body weight in moss and vegetation per day. The vegetation is sucked through the mouth to the "teeth" in the throat, this way the pond is not muddied by pulling the moss out by the roots. The rooted vegetation will continue to grow back while the Grass Carp keep it maintained. Their average growth rate is 2-5 pounds per season. These fish will need to be re-stocked every 5 to 7 years on the average.
