Smoky Trout Farm has been helping Albertans create and maintain private fisheries for a quarter of a century. Stocking fish is a big part of that but having a healthy fishery is about more. Healthy fish need healthy water.
A well-managed waterbody is healthier for everyone and everything that uses it, from kids and pets to wildlife and livestock. If you stock fish, good water quality supported by an aeration system, can allow you to winter your fish allowing them to grow bigger. A healthy water feature on your property can increase land resale value.
