Swimming Accelerated Stocking Package

Swimming Pond Stocking recommendations are very similar to the Midwestern Stockings, but utilize redear sunfish, or shell cracker, as the primary forage fish.  The use of redear, instead of a bluegill and hybrid bluegill mix, reduces the incidences of nibbles on swimmers' legs and protrusions on the upper torso.  The Swimming Pond Stocking also includes an aggressive stocking of certified sterile grass carp to help control submerged vegetation.  The recommended fish will ensure compatibility with swimmers, reduce mosquito larvae and create a great fishing pond.
