Knowing the proper species, sizes and quantity of fish to stock, and the best time of year to do so, is key to successful fisheries management. And as your complete lake and pond management partner, SOLitude Lake Management offers strategic fish stocking services to support your overall fisheries management program. Our staff is experienced with raising and stocking ponds with fish of all species. We regularly utilize the following species of fish for stocking ponds, but can work with clients to locate and stock pond fish of any species not listed here (as long as they are legal in your state).
When it comes to pond stocking fish, we utilize a trusted network of quality fish farmers across the county. We are able to secure the variety and quantity of fish needed to ensure that our clients have the highest odds of reaching their goals. To keep the fish healthy and to minimize stress throughout the stocking process, our fish are transported in large insulated fish hauling tanks that have controlled amounts of pure oxygen metered into each individual tank. Water temperatures on the truck are kept cool during transportation and the water is treated with salt to help keep the fish calm and stress free.
Once arriving at the lake or pond, the fish on the truck are acclimated if the difference in water temperature exceeds the tolerance of the species being stocked. This is done by taking water from the pond and adding it to the hauling tanks prior to releasing the fish into their new home.
In support of our belief that lakes and ponds are a precious natural resource requiring protection, SOLitude is committed to providing sustainable and renewable solutions that maintain ecological balance in the workplace and beyond.
When you partner with SOLitude, a dedicated field technician visits your lake or pond twice a month, leveraging extensive knowledge and training to carefully maintain ecological balance and preserve the appearance of your aquatic property.
Utilizing the latest GPS aquatic mapping technology and our own proprietary lake and pond management software, the experts at SOLitude collect all the data necessary to provide comprehensive analysis and in-depth solutions.
