Through the narrow Straits hindered the water exchange between the seas and so the tides on the black sea coast is virtually invisible.

The colonization of an artificial lake with decorative fish

Construction technology

Many artificial lakes to commercial use zaryblyayut different species of fish, which, being part of the water community, maintain the pond in a full-fledged state.

Depending on the size of the artificial lake, and destination of fish in the pond (decorative feature for catching fish, etc.), the ratio of species group of fish at check-in may be different.

In General, all species of fish that inhabits the artificial lake, can be divided into 3 main groups:

1. Carp, crucian carp, silver carp, pike – can be up to 80% of the total number of fish in the pond. These fish are the main inhabitants of the large artificial lakes, particularly lakes open type, and is mostly meant for ponds in which the accent link is fishing.

Fish species bred in ponds

Carp is a domesticated form of carp, bred by a long selection work. From wild carp the carp is a more efficient use of feed, and in this regard, and grow in similar conditions carp diet. On other biological characteristics of carp and carp are very similar.

It is best to feed and grow carp at a temperature of 25-29°. When the temperature of the water feeding intensity of carp intensified, but the costs of the feed decreases due to the fact that the content of oxygen dissolved in water at elevated temperatures considerably below, than at lower, and the metabolic processes it needs more. In case of insufficient concentration of oxygen dissolved in water is bad carp to digest food.

Normal oxygen content in the water for carp believe about 5 cm3 in 1 L. the Allowable concentration is considered to be 3 to 3.5 cm3 in 1 L.

Sexual maturity carp reaches 4-5 on the year, but there are cases when it begins to multiply in third and sometimes second year. Males typically Mature somewhat earlier than females. The carp spawning occurs when water temperature 16-48°. Fecundity is usually estimated in 180 thousand eggs per 1 kg of body weight of the female. Continue reading
