Ottawa Soil and Water Conservation District is holding its 2009 Fish Sale. Pond owners have the opportunity to stock their ponds with bluegill, channel catfish, fathead minnows, largemouth bass, redear sunfish and white amur supplied through Fender’s Fish Hatchery in Baltic, Ohio.

White amur, more commonly known as grass carp, are members of the minnow family reported to attain weights in excess of 100 pounds and to live up to 15 years. In the United States, the sterile white amur is primarily used to control aquatic vegetation. Leafy, rooted aquatic plants, such as pondweed and coontail, are the preferred food of these fish. Lacking these, they will consume floating duckweed, green algae and even cattails.

All fish must be pre-ordered and pre-paid. To receive an order form, call 419-898-1595 or visit the office at 240 W. Lake St., Oak Harbor. The deadline to order is Oct. 2. Fish will be delivered Oct. 8.
