Good service; Fish Healthy

I ordered some triploid grass carp from Smith Creek. The fish were shipped overnight and arrived lively in good shape. The final results are TBD, but the service was very good.

great service

It was so easy doing business with you. Our fish are doing well. Thank you for the easy transaction.

Very Pleased!

I wasn’t sure how this was going to work trying to ship fish to me, but I was very pleased and impressed with their process. The fish arrived on time and in good shape. They were triple bagged. I would definitely use Smith Creek again!

**advertised or quoted price from NY.

The grass carp or white amur, a vegetarian, is a natural alternative or addition to chemicals for aquatic weed control. In many situations, stocking Triploid Grass Carp is more cost-effective than chemical applications.

The Grass Eating Carp is a native of China and has been used for more than 700 years to control excessive aquatic weed growth. Grass carp should not be confused with common carp (Ctenopharyngodon idella). The white amur has a silvery green body and no barbels, whereas the common carp is golden yellow and has barbels and is the same species as koi.
