RAISING BAIT FISH AND CRAYFISH IN NEW YORK PONDS FREE DOWNLOAD
A generation ago, minnows for bait were easily seined from lakes and streams. Now, however, because of a tremendous increase in the number of fishermen, these natural waters cannot supply angling needs. The demand for additional new sources of bait led the New York State Conservation Department in cooperation with Cornell University to explore the possibilities of raising bait fish in New York ponds. Tests conducted in 90 ponds demonstrated that the golden shiner, fathead minnow and white sucker can be raised successfully in New York in properly designed ponds.
