The Use of Antimycin (Fintrol) in Farm Ponds in Georgia

The results from the use of antimycin A in Georgia fish ponds as a fish toxicant within the period 1968-1974 are presented in the following paper. Concentrations of antimycin at 0.4 to 0.6 parts per billion (ppb) were found to be the most desirable range for reducing populations of scalefish in attempting to improve balance and/ or to improve fishing. For controlling all sizes of scalefish in catfish ponds, concentrations of 2.0 and 4.0 ppb seemed effective. The gravity flow method of application by boat was found to be adequate, but other means of application could be used successfully.
