Fathead minnows can be used as a barometer for water quality or as forage fish. During the warm summer months they may spawn several times giving you a large population of minnows to feed larger fish or to prey upon insect larva that you swat at when enjoying your pond. Our general stocking rate for new ponds is 5 lbs. per acre or ask us about stocking rates to help grow larger game fish. Special pricing available for larger orders. Small orders will be bagged with oxygen and boxed. You can pick them up at our farm or have them delivered.
