Here is how fish ponds help efficient waste management

Though fish ponds are commonly being used as a decorative feature in homes, not many know that they can be scientifically used for efficient waste management. For the fishes to grow in these ponds, the water should have high level of oxygen. Besides, the fishes should be able to get their food from the water itself.


When wastes are loaded in the pond, the oxygen that is required for its decomposition would be drawn from the water. Then, the fishes may not get enough oxygen and they may soon die. However, if sufficient amount of waste is not put into the pond, the fishes wouldn’t get food as well. There is an incredible way to balance the two by growing fishes and allowing efficient waste management. It, however, has to be carried out perfectly for best results.

If the pond is too small or shallow, you can only grow a few fishes and waste too cannot be put in huge quantities. So, waste management in fish ponds, that require huge area, is not possible in places like flats. The water in the pond has be to be cleaned occasionally, if not frequently.

The waste that is not broken down or the fish waste may get loaded up and eventually reduce the depth of the pond. So, the pond has to be cleaned to remove these wastes. Factors like these have to be considered before arranging such things in confined spaces like a flat.
