Pond Information

    Did you see dead fish floating in your pond last spring? One of the most common causes for a fish kill is not polluted water, but a lack of dissolved oxygen. A “winter fish kill” is a common occurrence during long winters where heavy snow covers the ice of a pond. Visit our pond page to learn more!
