Topic Content:

  • Conditions Necessary for Siting a Fish Pond
    • adequate water supply, soil, vegetation etc.

The factors or conditions necessary for siting a fish pond include:

1. Soil Type:

Soil with high holding capacity is quite suitable for pond construction. In this regard, clay soil is recommended. Gravelly and sandy soils allow much seepage and thus do not make good pond choices. Soils for pond construction should be capable of contributing substantially to the fertility of the water.

2. Topography:

This term is used to describe the shape of the land. Topography also determines the shapes and size of the pond. The most useful topography for fish ponds is that which allows water to fill the ponds and drain them by using gravity. Ponds built on a slope can be drained easily. If the ponds are located on flat land, the pond must be built with a slope inside it so that it can be drained by gravity or it will have to be drained using a pump.
