Fingerlings are the tiniest

Initial channel catfish stocking rate usually is 100 fingerlings per surface acre (i.e., 10 per 1/10 acre) in ponds that are not fed or fed inconsistently. Channel catfish grow fine without feeding in most ponds when stocked at 100 or fewer per acre..


Catfish Growth Phases

The 5-week-old juvenile is 1.28–1.5 g in weight and 5–6 cm in length. This species can reach 0.7–1.5 kg after a year and 3–4 kg after three to four years. During the early stages, striped catfish will rapidly increase in length; but when the fish attains about 2.5 kg in weight, it begins to accumulate body fat.
