Hello there,

Are you hoping to stock a pond on your property, or to begin raising fish in a tank?

If you want info about ponds, the Ohio Pond Management Handbook is a great starting point: https://wildlife.ohiodnr.gov/portals/wildlife/pdfs/publications/fish%20management/Pub432.pdf


If you are interested in raising fish in an aquaculture setting, OSU Extension's Aquaculture Program has some great resources here: https://southcenters.osu.edu/aquaculture/extension/external-resources and so does the Ohio Aquaculture Association here: https://www.ohioaquaculture.org/

Our OSU Extension State Aquaculture Specialist is Matt Smith and our program director of aquatic ecosystems is Eugene Braig. Both are great resources and you can find their contact info below :
