Tilapia clean up algae and vegetation in ponds and they are chemical free!
Native to the warm waters of Africa, tilapia should be stocked outdoors when water temperatures reach the mid-60s.
For southeast Ohio, plan to purchase tilapia for ponds around the beginning to middle of May.
Recommended stocking densities for tilapia = 30 lbs. per acre.
Three 6” tilapia = approx. 1 Lb.
Example: A 1 acre pond will need 100 - 6” tilapia for the season (May - October).

You'll be amazed at the difference in your pond this summer!
