Danbury Fish Farms proudly introduces the “LEGACY BASS”.
Danbury Fish Farms is no stranger to “big” largemouth bass. Kenny Zwahr, Owner and President of Danbury Fish Farms, has been producing a variety of sub-species of largemouth bass for over 40 years now. Kenny, pictured in the photo to the left, is holding two selectively bred Florida Bass that are some of the parent stock to our “Legacy Bass”. Producing Quality Bass fisheries for our customers has been one of Danbury Fish Farms specialties for many, many years. Kenny quotes “I have raised and killed more big bass through my learning experience as an “aquaculturists” than most any three people combined will see in a life time”. Kenny utilized and capitalized on his expertise with largemouth bass production when he founded and established “The Lakes of Danbury”, that soon after founding, became nationally known as the best freshwater fishing complex in the Southern US.
Jeff Fletcher, Danbury Fish Farms’ fisheries biologist, pictured to the left with two more of our prized Florida brood fish, has been working on the production of a new line of “high quality, fast growing” bass that exceed normal growth rates of other bass. These bass are being produced to grow fast and bite very well, two definite characteristics that will assure our customers that when utilizing the Legacy Bass in their fishery, that they will attain extraordinary results. Danbury Fish Farms has a few of these bass left for the 2010 season, but will have a very good supply of these in spring of 2011. These bass are destined to sell fast so if you are interested in reserving some of the Legacy Bass for your lake or pond,

Stocking and Managing Lakes and Ponds
Stocking lakes and ponds is more of an art than a science. Our company’s primary goal is to assist our customers in maximizing their aquatic fisheries resources…
In order to maximize our customer’s fisheries resource and money invested, we help educate them concerning the many variables that affect their fish for stocking ponds and lakes and then their subsequent fisheries and lake management. In over 40 years of working with thousands of customers, we have found that customer education and awareness in these areas that affect their fisheries and their resources, greatly assists the pond owner in correctly stocking and managing their resource, and exponentially increases the chance of their overall success. The logical and correct approach to stocking customer’s fisheries correctly is to first of all know what the customer’s goals are for each lake or pond that will be stocked. One the goal is defined and known, then each lake or pond must be properly evaluated. There are many, many variables that must evaluated and include but are not limited to: size of pond, depth of pond, internal contours and characteristics, drain type and size, water supply, watershed, water quality, anticipated management practices, and geographic location. Stocking and managing a lake with future goals and expectations in mind takes a definite strategy and plan. This strategy and plan is the highest objective to consider and should be the very first thing a customer completes off their “checklist” to success.
Lake and ponds are complex entities. Being successful with your lake or pond project is not as simple as just driving down to Danbury and picking up fish for stocking ponds, and then waiting in anticipation for spectacular results to occur 1-2 years later. It simply doesn’t happen that way or that easy. Successful results are a product of “well thought out and planned” stocking and management strategies for your fisheries, followed by a methodical and consistent lake or pond management plan. Since every situation is a little different, we highly recommend that you call us and allow us to help you make the right decisions in order to achieve the results you desire for your fisheries. It is our desire to assist you and to help you feel very comfortable that you are stocking the correct type, size and quantity of fish in order to reach your goal for each of your lake(s) or pond(s).
The following are some of those important items you need to be aware of to insure success that when acquiring fish for stocking ponds or when considering pond or lake management issues. Read More
