We are currently in the process of a feasablilty study on creating three stock ponds. Ten acres of the farm are pretty much under water due to five natural well springs.

The central fisheries board have been out to survey and the crucial points are that there is no possiblity of the stock 'escaping' to local waters and that no invasive pond species are used.

We seem to be getting alot of encouragement from the powers that govern here.

Re: Carp - the stocks available are non existant this year primarily due to angling clubs having to massively restock loughs that have been stripped.

Brilliant resource and alot of information on here (Just takes a little finding...)

Would carp keep on top of mosquito larva? I would hate to build a big pond and then get bitten for my pains....

I thought it might be appropriate to bump this thread. I also came across this useful list of edible plants that would also be useful if you had a decent sized pond.
