Fishponds On Farms: Desirable Sites for the Location of Ponds.

Fishponds On Farms: Desirable Sites for the Location of Ponds. If a gravity flow of water is contemplated, the fishpond must, of course, be located below the level of the source of supply. Porous soils are to be avoided, if possible, not only because of the large volume of water required to replace loss from seepage but because they are usually sterile.

Swamp lands, old water courses, and catch basins of years’ standing are the best and most productive soils, as they possess the required fertility and contain seeds and spores for the early development of profuse vegetation and animalcular. Ponds located in such soil will maintain their water levels with a minimum inflow.

Satisfaction may be had from ponds less favorably located, however, if good sense is employed in their preparation and maintenance.

Aside from the ideal lands of alluvial deposits, clay loams are a first choice, being most impervious to water and quickly responsive to efforts made to establish their fertility. Sandy loam, being the most prevalent, is the most general soil in use for pond construction.

While some difficulty may at first be experienced in making it retain water, this is overcome- in time by the accumulation of decayed vegetation. Its fertility is good and, in general, it produces a sufficient supply of natural food.

Even clear sand and gravel mixtures may be made to hold water and brought to fair productivity by increased expenditures in construction, and by the application of fertilizers in a manner to be explained later.

It is very desirable, and also essential for a marked degree of success, that ponds be so located and constructed that they may be entirely emptied of water in certain seasons. To this end there should be accessible a natural dry run or water course lower than the bottom of the proposed pond, to which drainpipes may be conducted.

Ponds are drained for the purpose of assorting fish, removing objectionable species, reducing the stock, killing out excessive vegetation, etc. Complete drainage cannot be affected, of course, unless there are adjacent waters to which the fish can be removed during this process. A number of small auxiliary ponds will always be found advantageous in fish-cultural work.

Where the primary purpose is other than fish culture the selection of the site must depend upon the more important object in view. Fish culture will yield very satisfactory returns as a secondary enterprise, but the site selected for the work should be the best available consistent with the general scheme of farming operations.
