AgriSearch: Cleaning Used Fishponds

To improve the quality of the fishpond, it’s recommended to drain all the water and clean the old fishpond before starting the transformation process. Remove all the remaining water, deal with any foreign fish species, especially aggressive ones. Additionally, it’s important to clean up any debris and waste at the bottom of the pond. If there is mud left, only leave a thin layer.

For easy maintenance and fish care, it’s best to have a flat pond bottom with a slight slope towards the drainage system (similar to a bathroom floor in a house).

When it comes to the pond banks, it’s important to fill in any holes, burrows, or caves to prevent the fish from escaping. Clear any overgrown grass, bushes, and trees around the banks. Additionally, the banks should be raised to about 1.5m above the pond bottom.

AgriSearch: Disinfecting the Pond Before Raising Carp Fish

To achieve high efficiency in carp fish farming and prevent diseases, it’s recommended to add lime to the pond. Add 7 to 10kg of lime per 100m2. After adding lime, it’s important to let the pond dry for about a week. In areas with high iron content or previously infected fish, it’s recommended to double the amount of lime.

Successful results in raising carp fish

Before releasing the carp fish, it’s advisable to spread decomposed manure with green waste as a bedding layer in the pond. Spread regular manure evenly and bundle green waste into separate bundles, placing them in different corners of the fishpond.

To ensure the safety of the fish, it’s recommended to install a sturdy mesh with small openings to prevent outside fish from entering the pond and competing for food and territory with the carp fish.

After completing all these steps, the pond can be filled with water, and the fish can be released!
