Much of the best artificial fisheries habitat comes from Fishiding, one of the sponsors of this website. It’s doing great things to improve fishing using materials that otherwise would end up in a landfill.
That’s why engineers have recommended its products for a restoration effort at California’s Lake Machado near Los Angeles. Reasons include the following:
“The inert, reclaimed PVC limbs will last for decades or more underwater. The PVC material attracts bio-film and peripyton growth excessively, superior to other products. The ability to bend to shape and drop in the water landing upright, is another key feature.”
One of Fishiding’s latest innovations is the bait-ball artificial habitat feeder, created using Floating Island International Technology. It converts nutrients into fish food by providing surface area for the food to grow naturally.
According to Fishiding, “Units can be installed by hanging from piers, docks, rafts, etc., suspended off lake bottom at any desired depth or free-floating within entire water body from surface to any depth.”
If you own private waters in need of habitat or if you’re involved with a habitat project on public waters, you should check out the options that this innovative company offers.
