The Hydrilla (a type of lake or pond weed) in Greene Acres Lake is starting to overgrow. Sterile grass carp (Triploid Carp) were introduced into the lake approximately ten years ago in order to control the weed. When young, grass carp can eat their own weight in weed daily! Grass carp live about ten years, which is probably why we’re beginning to see a problem with the hydrilla lake weed again now as those fish reach the end of their life span.

The carp are recommended to be stocked in the fall or spring, at a level of three per acre, for our current amount of hydrilla overgrowth. So, for our lake, which is 27 acres, we would need to purchase approximately 100 for effective weed control. Grass carp at 10-12 inches (smaller fish are not recommended due to depredation by larger fish and birds etc.) cost approximately $12 each. With delivery costs we estimate an approximate $2000 outlay.

The board of trustees is asking members to “Adopt a Carp”! Any amount would be appreciated, to help offset the restocking costs. Please click on the donate button below or contact any board member to make your donation.

                                  THANK YOU!!!

Please consider entering a minimum of $15.  

NOTE:  When you click the donate button, you will be directed to a second page to enter in the amount by just typing in the numbers where the “$0.00″ appears.  High lighting or backspacing over the amount is not needed.
