Hi there. I am a member of an ecovillage group living near Orangeville, Ontario, and we have a spring-fed, land-locked, long-established pond of about 1/4 acre. The average depth is about 8 feet. There are numerous aquatic plant, insect, and reptile species living in the pond, but no fish. Could you recommend a species of fish that we could stock the pond with that is endangered, yet native to Ontario waters, AND would be of interest to local collectors or retailers of that species (eg. darter, dace, chub, etc.)?
Any reply would be helpful. Cheers. Orion Wilson
