Fisheries Management - Success Above and Below The Surface
Fisheries management revolves around several limiting factors that will influence the productivity of a fishery. Habitat, predator to prey ratios, proper fish species and available food all play a role in a fishery's success. Proper lake and pond management plays a significant role in preventing algae and vegetation growth, and therefore, a low level of oxygen that can put your pond at a risk of a fish kill. Properly balancing these variables, you can create a well balanced aquatic community. Throw in good genetics, and you have the fundamentals to produce a trophy fishery. Be creative but realistic by incorporating the climate and the pond's characteristics with your goals when developing the management plan. Having a fisheries biologist draw up a plan designed specifically for your pond and goals is very beneficial and a worthy investment.
