Additional Information

The grass carp is native to eastern Asia but was introduced in the United States for aquatic weed management. Grass carp eat a wide range of aquatic plants but not all. It is best to identify, in advance, vegetation in ponds/lakes where grass carp may be needed for control. Stocking rates are generally 5-10 per acre and can be as high as 30 or more dependent upon coverage of vegetation in the pond or lake. Usual stocking sizes in recreation ponds are around 10 inches.

Largemouth Bass are a species of black bass that are native to North America. They can be broken down into two categories. (1) Florida bass which is native to south Florida and (2) Northern bass which account for the rest of the country.

The Florida Largemouth Bass is known for its exceptional growth rate, while the Northern Bass is known for its aggressive nature. Southern States Game Fish Hatchery also produces an F1 bass which is a cross between the Florida bass and the Northern bass. One can expect the F1 bass to have the growth rates of Florida bass along with the aggressiveness of the Northern bass.
