How do fish move from pond to pond?
Similarly, it is asked, how do fish spread from pond to pond?
Fish can be introduced into new ponds in quite a few ways. Eggs or fry can be carried in on the feet or mouths of water foul and other animals, or can be clinging onto some aquatic plants you decided to add to your pond. Sometimes flooding can wash fish from nearby ponds, lakes, and streams into your pond.
In this regard, can birds carry fish eggs from pond to pond?
So how do fish reach lakes and ponds that are not connected to other bodies of water? The theory is thus that the fish eggs stick to water birds' feathers or feet; the birds then fly from one body of water to the next, where the fish hatch from their eggs.
If fish make it to permanent water and survive, they may move back to the dry stream upon rewetting. As with completely dry streams, fish must be able to move to the permanent habitats to survive, unless they occur there already.
