& improve water quality
Water quality and dissolved oxygen levels in ponds and lakes are dramatically and rapidly improved by adding tilapia.
Pond Management – Live Mozambique Tilapia for your ponds to control your algae and duckweed & grow your bass to trophy size.
Live tilapia for lake and pond management. Tilapia will eat many of the common types of filamentous algae, blue-green algae, rooted plants and even twigs and other organic debris. They are very efficient consumers. When stocked at the appropriate rates into your pond, the Tilapia can be very effective at dramatically reducing seasonal plant material. They are not problematic for swimmers in the pond like some other types of panfish.
Stocking your lake or pond with live tilapia from East Texas Tilapia will minimize the need for chemical control of algae and most submerged plants, including duckweed and watermeal. The reduction in algae and overgrown plants reduces the nightly buildup of carbon dioxide and helps reduce large swings and stabilize both the dissolved oxygen and PH levels.
Tilapias produce a vast amount of natural forage. This reduces pressure on all other forage fish. Tilapia don’t directly compete with other fish for food in the ecosystem, enhancing their survival, size, and numbers.
