Permaculture instructor Andrew Millison presents on ponds and permaculture water management.
We had several ponds on our property in the dry tropics which were seasonal, and used to charge the aquifer and water livestock and wildlife. We added local Nothobranchius fish (killifish) which lay eggs in the mud, and these hatch when the ponds refill, these controlled mosquitoes, and were a food source for kingfishers herons etc, as well as some human consumption. Once the small fish were established, we added larger lung fish which provided a larger fish and a better food source for humans – only allowed to be fished in the wet summer, and no digging them out during the dry period, so as to maintain the population.
