Subject: native fish for ponds
I live in the Northwest hills in Portland, OR & now have a large outdoor
pond fed by a recirculating creek. I am most interested in stocking it with
small non-endangered Northwest native fish. I have had difficulty finding
information about appropriate species & how to obtain them. Thank you for
any information that you can provide. Burt lazar
