White Amur for biological control of pondweeds.

 

In newer waters or in waters less than 20 percent pondweed cover at peak season, white amur can be a good control option.  White amur will browse down pondweed growth and amur will consume some algae.  The key to success with white amur is to stock sufficient fish to consume and control growth and to maintain amur numbers with regular restocking every two – three years.  Stocking rates of 5-10 white amur per surface area of water will control, but not eliminate growth.  If algae is your primary problem, white amur will not control algae enough to produce results; some use and treatment with algaecides will also be necessary but this must be done with caution(partial 1/3 pond or lake treatment at one time) as white amur can be killed with large scale algae treatments.  If your personal goal or requirement is to clear all vegetation from docks, beaches, or high use areas than you will probably choose chemical control over the use of white amur.
