— 12— Tools for Fish Farming edited by Nancy J. Moore

The uses of a farm pond are as varied as its owners. For some, ponds perform the vital function of providing water for home and livestock. To many people, the pond is a great source of recreation and relaxation—swimming, boating, and fishing in summer, and skating in winter. The pond serves as a catch basin for pasture runoff during rainstorms and is often the only water source for a range area in the event of fire. Insurance companies have been known to lower premium costs for owners of farm ponds.

Pond water is particularly rich in organic materia] when it contains fish and algae. Resourceful farmers can use this nutrient-rich water for crop irrigation, and benefit from the fertilizer boost as well. The extra bit of work and planning necessary for a successful farm pond is easily offset by these benefits.
