What do you envision for your fishery?

Trophy Recreational Fishery

A trophy fishery can be a reality with a little attention to water quality, habitat, and balanced fish stocking. Trout, bass, bluegill, catfish and many other game species can provide excellent recreational fishing opportunities in ponds, lakes, and rivers. Contact the team at Aqua Sierra today to share your vision for your fishing water and to start bringing that vision to life!

Sustainable Aquatic Ecosystem

fish-stocking-tier-2-pic-1One of our aquatic resource management goals is to create balance within our clients’ waters and get them on a sustainable trajectory. While water quality, dissolved oxygen levels, and habitat all play vital roles, creating a reproducing, balanced forage base is also essential in establishing of a sustainable fishery.

To establish a reproducing, balanced forage base it is important to know “who is home”; types and densities of invertebrates as well as the age classes, weights, and densities of each fish species in the resource. After the food chain has been bolstered and balanced, you can sit back and watch your fish grow! To learn more about assessing the health and sustainability of your fishery look at having a Fisheries Survey conducted on your water.

Vegetation Control

gc-tier-2Grass carp (White Amur) can be an excellent, proactive tool to biologically manage aquatic vegetation and algae. These fish are strict herbivores (plant-eating) are known to consume their body weight in plant matter every other day until they reach maturity. The nutrients in the plant then become incorporated into the biomass of the fish and are made unavailable for new plant and algae growth.

To maximize the effectiveness of grass carp it is important to correctly identify which plants you are trying to manage. Activity in and around a resource, location, and the plant and algae species to be controlled all factor into how many carp should be stocked for optimal control. Contact one of the biologists at Aqua Sierra today to see if grass carp might be an effective, appropriate management tool for your aquatic resource.

Mosquito and Midge Control

minnow-tier-2Fathead minnows, fingerling bluegill, and small trout are opportunistic feeders that feed just below the water’s surface where many insect larvae, such as mosquitoes, are found. Capable of living and reproducing in wetlands to reservoirs, choosing the right species and stocking densities can provide sustained relief from biting or nuisance aquatic insects.
Additionally, when stocked in appropriate numbers, fathead minnows can be a sustainable, quality food source and a vital piece in the creation of a trophy fishery. Contact the team at Aqua Sierra today to see which species would work best in your water.
