PRIVATE FISH DEALERS



Pond and lake owners may desire to purchase their own fish for stocking purposes from a private source. There are numerous dealers who raise and supply fish for stocking purposes. Their prices vary according to the kind, size, availability, and delivery method.


The Illinois Department of Natural Resources does not assume any responsibility, recommend, or endorse the following listings, but provides this for the convenience of those who may desire a private source of fish for stocking purposes. It is recommended that those who desire to purchase fish consult with their local district fisheries biologist

or Natural Resources Conservation Service Office.


It is unlawful for any person(s) to import into the State or possess in the State live diploid grass carp (white amur), silver carp, bighead carp or hybrid grass carp, except that a person possessing an aquaculture permit and letters of authorization may do so. It is unlawful for any person(s) to import, possess, or stock walking catfish. To possess or stock triploid grass carp, the water owner’s name must appear on the aquaculture permit holder’s restricted species transportation permit. The pond owner may legally possess and/or transport triploid grass carp over 4" in length if he possesses a bill of sale from the aquaculture permit holder or licensed fish dealer certifying that these fish have a triploid number of chromosomes.







Equal opportunity to participate in programs of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) and those funded by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and other agencies is available to all individuals regardless of race, sex, national origin, disability, age, religion or other non-merit factors. If you believe you have been discriminated against, contact the funding source’s civil rights office and/or the Equal Employment Opportunity Officer, IDNR, One Natural Resources Way, Springfield, IL 62702-1271; 217/785-0067; TTY 217/782-9175


This information may be provided in an alternative format if required. Contact the DNR Clearinghouse at 217/782-7498 for assistance.
