Hundreds of Students Visit Ozark Fisheries

Published on November 7, 2011

Ozark Fisheries’ Indiana division, located in Martinsville, opened its doors to hundreds of students and their advisors the week of October 17th for the 2011 National FFA Convention. Held in Indianapolis, the National FFA Convention is one of the largest annual student conventions in the country, hosting approximately 55,000 students this year.

The students toured the farm to learn about the spawning, production and shipping of Ozark’s ornamental goldfish and koi crops. The hands-on tour opened the eyes of many students to the world of aquaculture.

Ozark Fisheries has been in business since 1926, raising feeder and fancy goldfish, such as pond comets, red fantails, shubunkins, and sarasa comets. Ozark is also known as an industry leader in koi and butterfly koi production. Other pond items such as trapdoor snails, crawdads, tadpoles and fish food are also available.
