White Amurs (commonly called grass carp) are primarily vegetarian, feeding on all types of pond weed, making them an excellent choice for controlling vegetation problems. Once introduced, Amurs can reach 24″ and 4-5 pounds by the first summer, but will need about two years to become effective at controlling weeds and algae. Several attempts may be needed to establish a good population due to natural mortality and predators like blue heron, fish hawks, and even bald eagles.
