Well, the first issue has come up at the pond. Last Sunday I took a walk around the lake and saw half a dozen dead catfish. Figured it must have been stress from the winter, then today while working I saw another couple. One was close to shore so I tried to grab it and when I did it swam off just out of reach. It would kick a couple times then go on its side. Any ideas what would cause this? Virus perhaps?
We have seen bluegill fairly regularly in the pond and they are happy, healthy, and growing nicely.
Would it be possible to take a fish in to a biologist to find out what is causing the dying?
