These pellets provide a natural and organic way to keep the water clear. They slowly release beneficial ingredients as it biodegrades. This process is similar to applying the barley straw bales, but with this pellet form it makes it much easier and quicker to apply.
NYS Permit Information For Stocking Fish
We also ask that you apply for your NYSDEC Fish Stocking Permit which is required to stock fish in any waterbody of 10 acres or more. The application can be found at the link below or on the NYSDEC's website. You may also consider applying for the Farm Fish Pond License which is needed for ponds less than 10 acres. Both permits are free and last up to 5 years.
