Stocking and Management

Fish Stocking

Utilizing the most current research available to professional aquaculturists, Henneke Fish Hatchery will make certain that your water body is stocked with the right species of fish, and in the right quantity and proportion, to produce a top-notch fishery with a modest investment. 


If you have just constructed a new lake or pond on your property, or you have an existing lake that is not producing the same fish that it used to, an aquaculturist can help correct these problems.  Henneke Fish Hatchery specializes in the health and production of lakes and ponds, and provides aquaculturists and fish management for pond stocking in Texas.  Aquaculturist’s study lakes and their wildlife carefully to understand how the ecosystem interacts and how any problems can be corrected in the long term.

There are many different factors that affect the production or health of your lake or pond.  If the waters are traditionally popular fishing areas, the problem may be as simple as limiting the amount of fishing allowed in the area.  If new land developments have gone up in the area, or if agriculture has increased, the problem may be from pollution or fertilizer runoff that has disturbed the wildlife balance.  An aquaculturist can target these problems and give you solutions to promote more fish production in the lake or pond with larger, more diverse fish species.

Get an expert opinion for your lake or pond and solve any problems you are experiencing.  Call Henneke Fish Hatchery to learn more about fish management and aquaculture.


Electro-Shock or Fish Removal

Need fish added? Or, maybe, removed? The only way to know is through a comprehensive electro-shocking program, and utilizing the most current technology available, no one does it better than Henneke Fish Hatchery. 

Lakes and ponds are diverse ecosystems that shift quickly.  If wildlife in your lake or pond has been drastically reduced, or if plants and animals have exploded, and you need to control the area, Henneke Fish Hatchery can help.  With electrofishing, pond management and fish removal in Texas, Henneke Fish Hatchery provides effective, long-term solutions to restore your water feature to its desired state.

Fish removal and electrofishing may be required for many reasons.  If the water’s ecosystem has suffered from a food shortage, algal blooms, changes in water temperatures or other circumstances, certain types of fish may have taken over.  Catfish, carp, flatfish and other bottom-feeders often overtake other species when the water changes, and it may be necessary to eliminate these fish in order to restore the ecosystem.  Henneke Fish Hatchery will clean the water of these bottom feeders or other fish and help reintroduce diverse fish species again.

If you are looking for a decorative pond without fish, if a single species has taken over, or you need assistance in general, fish management for your water feature, call Henneke Fish Hatchery today at 361-798-5934.


Total Lake Management

 A quality lake is the collective result of a great many things done right. In essence, your pond is a large and constantly-evolving virtual organism. Via a comprehensive, closely-monitored “holistic” approach, Henneke Fish Hatchery explores and addresses every aspect of the water and habitat, so that your aquatic arena remains perpetually healthy and vibrant. 

Sometimes, ponds and lakes can stay healthy for decades, maintaining strong levels of fish and plant life without help.  With more and more land development occurring and changes in weather patterns interfering with normal water ecosystems, many other lakes and ponds need a little extra care to stay strong.  Henneke Fish Hatchery specializes in full aquatic pond and lake management services in Texas to keep all your water features healthy.

There are many factors to consider when managing a lake or pond.  Lakes and ponds are diverse and complicated ecosystems that require a steady balance to maintain healthy fish.  This is especially important for lakes that are known for their productive fishing waters.  When fish populations diminish, waters become polluted or other changes occur, an aquaculturist can help restore the original state of the lake or pond. By promoting or limiting plant growth, adding supplemental fish food, removing certain fish species and introducing others, the pond or lake can become even stronger than it was before.

Maintain the beauty of your lake or pond and protect it for generations to come.  Call Henneke Fish Hatchery at 361-798-5934 for lake management services in Texas.
