SWCD taking fish orders

Staff report

The Fulton Soil and Water Conservation District is currently taking orders for the annual fish fingerling distribution program for stocking ponds.

Species offered for sale are bluegill, channel catfish, largemouth bass, redear sunfish, yellow perch, fathead minnows, hybrid bluegill, Koi, and Triploid White Amur. Deadline to order is Monday, May 9, with the pick-up on Thursday, May 12, at the Fulton County Fairgrounds. After all orders are received pick-up times will be announced.

Bring containers, such as a trash can or a five-gallon pail, each lined with a new trash bag. When tied at the top, the bags enable air to be added for the trip to the pond. Fill containers no more than half full with pond water.

Order forms and stocking rates may be obtained by calling the Fulton SWCD office at 419-337-9217 or can be downloaded at swcd.fultoncountyoh.com.
