Bass Farm

Recommended Posts

Hello, how could I start my own bass farm? I would like to replenish bass into lakes what us humans take from it. I think their natural reproduction isn't enough to sustain their numbers. I know I can't do it all by myself but just doing my part to put nature back in balance would be well worth it. Is there already enough stocking going on or not? I know a lake or two that could benefit from a more numerous bass population. It's a big business I reckon. Thank You have a nice day.

First, I believe it is illegal to transplant fish as you are describing it.

Second, their "natural reproduction" has been "enough to sustain their numbers" for the past few thousand years.

Third, what happens when you transplant fish from your little pond to a public lake, and you introduce a disease to the public lake?

If you want to do something, practice catch and release, and teach others to do the same, but please don't mess our public fisheries up. Leave the stocking to the professionals.

Hi preach4bass, I know you just can't raise a bunch of bass and dump them in your local public fishing area lake. Thanks for clearing up my thoughts about natural reproduction and their numbers. I wouldn't want diseased fish in our public lake no sir. Have a good one.

I think he is probably talking about becoming a professional.

If this is the case, some type of fisheries or biology degree would be in order. There's more to raising fish than putting them in water and feeding them.
