Deliveries and Pickups
Due to the hot weather, we will be suspending deliveries and pickups this weekend as predicted. I still have a few fish
left, but once gone, we will not resume until the third week of September. Have a great summer and feel free to contact
me, we are open just not handling carp over the hot months.

Spring stocking season coming to a close
Sat, June 18, 2016 | link
With the weather getting hot, pond and air temps are not conducive to transporting and handling grass carp. The metabolism
of carp is very high in warm weather and they have to eat a lot each day. The main issues are that warm water doesn't
hold oxygen as well as cold water, and their high activity in a holding tank is detrimental.
We have about
75 carp on hand, and when these are sold, we will wind down for the summer and reopen in late September.
have a large order (100- 200 head or more) and can take a shipment directly without our holding them in our fish barn
for long, we might be able to accomodate you.

Shipment arrived this week and already sold out. Next carp will be available on June 15
This has been a really busy spring srocking season. I got a beautiful shipment of 10-14 inch fish in. Thanks to
Shirl Dressler at VA DGIF, your permits are processed quickly and efficiently. She's great to work with. Get your
permit in right away because with the weather changing here and across the south, I may have to curtail shipments and pickups
by the 3rd week in June. Yesterday i delivered to Richmond and ponds were as hot as 92 degrees! Weeds love that
and fish grow quickly. If you miss the spring, we will resume in late September.
