Need assistance with wildlife and fish management on your ranch, backyard, or pond? Simply call your local County Extension Agent.
HOWDY! Welcome, to the homepage of Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service’s aquaculture, fisheries, & pond management website. We’re glad you found us and we hope you will be too! Please bear with us as we go through our ‘growing pains’ while developing this website. We strive to be a one-stop for all the fish and pond information you need, or ever wanted to know, on topics ranging from aeration to water quality. This website is designed to support County Extension Agents and the residents of Texas, but will be useful for anyone looking for information on aquatic issues.
We are not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, and we are still growing and improving, so we welcome your suggestions. If you find misspellings, broken links, the wrong picture, or something just plain seems funny, please let us know. We also welcome your input. Let us know if you have a suggested link on a topic, a good resource, or something you would like to share. We will vet the information you provide among Extension specialists to determine that it is current, reliable, and accurate before we post it to the website.
While Texas A&M University and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service have excellent resources at your disposal, we are far from the sole source of good information. On this website we do not restrict you to our great resources, and you will find information from Texas A&M, the USDA, the Regional Aquaculture Centers, other universities and Extension programs, state fish and wildlife agencies, professional societies, trade groups, and even from private industry such as the aquaculture producers, fish suppliers, pond managers, and aquatic vegetation applicators themselves. You might even find an occasional article from a student, or you, the general public. We often do projects with the residents of Texas, and they often share their experiences in the form of videos, pictures, and results demonstrations for us to share with the rest of you.
