Spring is Here

 I expect a lot of calls from pond owners this spring with algae problems. With a mild winter like we have had there wasn't enough ice and snow to block the sun light from the under water vegetation. What this will mean to you is, algae and lots of it.

 The water is too cold for chemicals to work and if you have grass carp in the pond they will still be dormant from the cold .

 Plant life need three things to grow:
sun light,
and nutrients

Limit the nutrient load in your pond with our pond conditioners (bacteria).
Starve the plant life out or at least slow the growth,
and if there is not too much water turn over, pond dyes to block the sun light. 

Once the water temps hit the upper 60s, then the grass carp will kick in.

 Let us know how we can help.

We are into winter now so if you would like to come to the hatchery it would be best to make an appointment ahead as we are out doing maintenance and don't have someone at the fish house all day. We still have some inventory and would be glad to take care of your pond or lake needs.

Quote for the season: Ponds that have aeration won't winter kill! 


 We have done a very good business this year selling fish to customers that lost fish to winter kill the last two years. A common mistake pond owners make is they take their fountains out come fall and store them in the garage.

Fountains are life savers for fish in winter months when we have these wicked hard freezes. When we have more then 60 days of freeze with no breaks in the weather the fish can and will run out of oxygen.

 We have special ends for the fountains we sell that will keep the pond open without loss of water due to ice pile up. We also sell bottom aeration that works very well all year long.

 If you have questions or concerns about your fish, please give me a call I'm always more than happy to help our customers grow healthy ponds.

Fenders Fish Hatchery



We have been serving pond and lake owners for over half a century with the highest standards of game fish and other products for the benefit of your ponds and lakes.

With the blessing of Mother Nature and the good Lord, we begin in the spring around the first of March, depending on when the ice leaves our ponds. We continue for the next 9 to 10 months, until the ponds freeze back over again in the late fall, around December.

All this time we will continually be bringing in fresh fish to sell at our location in the northeastern corner of Coshocton County. We will also be delivering to soil and water conservation districts. We will be at 19 locations beginning March 25th through October 25th. Check out our list of locations on our calendar page.

We will also be having sales at locations in the fall. A list of dates and locations will be added to our calendar page soon.
