Fish ponds come in a variety of shapes and sizes. It could be a concrete or earthen fish pond.

Each design of pond has benefits and drawbacks, but fish in an earthen pond tend to develop faster and are often more appealing than those in a concrete pond.

It is believed that fish in plastic tanks tends to be tastier.

In a fish farm, a lack of water might spell tragedy. As a result, sufficient water must be accessible, which necessitates the excavation of a borehole.
