Weeds & Aquatic Ecosystems
Beyond just appearing unattractive, a weedy pond offers unnecessary cover to forage species. This allows them to escape predation too often and leads to an overcrowded and a stunted predator (largemouth bass) population.
These weeds also steal important nutrients that could go toward production of microscopic algae, which fuels the food chain. This problem eliminates the option of pond fertilization and other fish production strategies as management options. Overall, a pond containing aquatic vegetation will greatly decrease the health of the system.
