Fish Stocking

Aquatica Environmental can provide advise, assess the impacts and assist with permits and approvals for the stocking of fish in both private and public waters.
When stocking fish it is essential that the appropriate species and numbers of fish are stocked to suit the environment, water body and to ensure animal welfare and environmental protection.
Common types of stocking include:
  • Commercial aquaculture
  • Commercial and private aquaponics
  • Recreational (i.e. for fishing)
  • Private (i.e. ponds and farm dams)

  • Brown and Rainbow Trout
