Time is running out to order fish through the Ottawa Soil and Water Conservation District’s annual Fish Sale. Orders are being accepted through Sept. 28.
Fender’s Fish Hatchery, of Baltic, Ohio, are supplying the fish for sale, which include Bluegill, Channel Catfish, Fathead Minnows, Largemouth Bass, Yellow Perch, Redear Sunfish and White Amur. White Amur, more commonly known as “Grass Carp” are members of the minnow family reported to reach weights in excess of 100 pounds and to live up to 15 years. They bear little resemblance to the common carp. Although cultured in Asia as a source of food, the sterile White Amur is primarily used in the U.S. to control aquatic vegetation.
All fish must be pre-ordered and pre-paid. Fish will be distributed Oct. 4 at the SWCD office at 240 W. Lake St., Oak Harbor. To obtain an order form, call 419-898-1595.
