Threadfin Shad

(Dorosoma petenense)

This species occupies an additional niche in the ecosystem and improves lake productivity since they mostly feed on phytoplankton. They provide a rich and abundant source of protein for largemouth bass. It is critical for establishment to stock in the spring with spawn ready shad. This means adult size (>2 inches) shad are gathered when they are surfacing in efforts to spawn. Shad do best in fertile ponds since they are filter feeders.
