Population Assessment & Management

“Pond Balance” is a term coined by Dr. Homer Swingle at Auburn University to describe the health of a ponds fish population. There are several methods that can be utilized to assess balance in ponds. Balance can be checked using Swingle Seine Haul Analyses, Relative Weight Calculations, or through Electrofishing Samples.

Got Problems?

County Agents can help you with weed identification and control recommendations for your pond. It's best to collect a sample in a jar or zip-lock bag or digital photos in early spring and submit them to your local Extension Office for identification.
