I haven't posted much lately because I am too busy to get on here. Lots of taxidermy work to get caught up on and winterizing ponds. AFIA concerned the election is over, Bush won fair and square, and that is the end of the story.

What do you do to winterize your ponds?

Living south of the Mason-Dixon line, theres not a need for that.

It may be interesting to other too.

Actually it more what I do to the fish John

I have junvenile fish in floating cages that I cover and sink and suspend a few feet above the bottom. I am also draining a couple ponds to do some maintenance on them. I move some diffusers around for winter use in shallower water to prevent too much mixing and chilling. Also cut and remove dead emergent vegatation to keep it from decomposing and filling in the pond and using oxygen as it decomposes. Just like regular farming there is always something to do.

Cecil, that's very interesting

Guess I never thought of aquaculture as being similar to farming. Pretty intriguing.
