A well stocked pond can provide many recreational opportunities for your family. The Ontario County SWCD fish stocking program provides suitable species at a reasonable cost. Residents with ponds may purchase certified disease free fish to place in their ponds. DEC permits are required for fish stocking in private ponds. Permits are free and application information can be found at https://www.dec.ny.gov/permits/25013.html. Triploid grass carp require an additional DEC permit and information about that can be found at https://www.dec.ny.gov/permits/25024.html.
