Aerator installation increases water clarity, dissolves oxygen content, and helps reduce the thermocline within an aquatic system. Aerator installation will not only improve the quality of your pond or lake, but it will actively assist in the growth of fish.
Knowing the water quality, aquatic weeds and algae, fish species, available habitat, erosion areas, and harvest practices are just a few of the pond management techniques that must be taken into account.
At Blue Ridge Wildlife & Fisheries Management, LLC, we take pride in providing customers with affordable, high-quality, customer-friendly solutions to any and all pond management needs. With fisheries biologists on staff, we approach all possible pond and fishery issues with an extended amount of knowledge, experience and know-how. Along with our biologists, our technicians are well-versed in the areas of pond management resolutions and habitat modifications to provide our customers with a long-lasting and enjoyable fishery. We offer various services, including aquatic weed and algae control, fish stocking, water quality testing, aerator installation, habitat modification (both natural and artificial), goose control, and aquatic pest control.
We understand that not all clients are the same. While one may simply have problematic geese or muskrats in an otherwise sustainable fishery, another may have a substantial aquatic vegetation problem, and yet another may simply require fish stocking. This is why we approach every pond management call we encounter with a fresh slate. We have no predetermined packages or sales pitches to give clients on the phone. We want to SEE your pond, understand what it is that YOU want, and manage it accordingly. That can include installing a few quality fish feeders, fish stocking, habitat modification, or providing you with full-scale aquatic vegetation control.
Controlling aquatic vegetation from a “permaculture” setting is our preferred approach. Hand pulling, pond raking, or habitat modifications can all achieve this goal.
Depending on the species present in your pond, you may want to supplement their food sources by feeding them. Have us install an automatic feeder to save yourself some time.
Fish stocking is more complex than just putting fish in a pond; adding the right species, at the right time, and at the right size is extremely important.
Modifying the buffer zones around your pond is a crucial step in reducing nutrient load for the overall health of the pond, and having sufficient habitat for the species of fish within it is crucial to maintaining a proper ecosystem.
Knowing the quality of the water in your pond is essential to taking the proper steps to manage your fishery.
