4 for pond 2

The ponds that I dug last year have matured and now have lots of cover and lots of food, they are ready for fish and here are some we prepared earlier, four magic Blackfish with more to come.

These are native fish and you must  have a permit for these fish as I do.

These fish will join others to produce young in the years to come, I have produced Blackfish fingerlings for four years in small numbers from only a handful of brood fish now with these fish and others I will be able to start producing larger numbers.

New brood stock

I needed new brood stock, the fish I had are over ten years old and not producing like they were so some new blood was needed to shake things up a bit, these fish are from a different place and will add genetic diversity to the young fish coming along.
