Mosquito eating fish in private ponds

I have a large pond on our property (about 1/4 acre surface area). We would like to ensure it doesn't become a breeding ground for mosquitoes.We know we will have to apply for the a private pond permit before stocking any fish, but do you have any recommendations on fish varieties which are good at controlling mosquito populations on a relatively stagnant pond?


The Twin Falls Mosquito Abatement District is using bluegill to control mosquitos and reporting very good results.  Mr. Kirk Tubbs is leading this program and you can get his contact information by searching on the internet under his name or the Twin Falls Mosquito Abatement District.
