how many fish can a 1 acr pond support



  1. 0 Votes

    It all depends on how big the fish are. According to this Wyoming fact sheet, fish that are 2-3 inches long can generally be stocked up to 200 fish per acre. Larger fish, such as 6 to 9-inch trout or bass, should only be stocked at 100 fish or fewer for each surface acre. 1,000 small “fathead minnows” can be stocked in a 1-acre pond. Be careful that you do not introduce species that compete too much with each other and that you are following the correct procedures with regard to the fish you choose (right temperature, right time, right groups of species, right habitat). See below for more information.
