                                             Yellowbelly - mixed stockingMixed Stocking Information

Yellowbelly can be stocked with all the different varieties of other species. Most people would stock a large dam over 1 megalitre with at least 2 species. The bigger the dam the more species you can have together. There are no major problems with mixed stockings. Yellowbelly are good with everything and go well with Australian Bass, Silvers and Catfish. Yellowbelly are a predatory fish and need space and food to grow. They are not recommended for dams under 1 megalitre.

When doing a mixed stocking you would usually do it 50/50. So for example a 1.5 megalitre dam could be stocked with 100 bass and 100 yellowbelly. In smaller dams you generally have Yellowbelly and silvers but larger dams you can have bass and yellowbelly.

Both Bass and Yellowbelly are predatory fish that take lures so most people stocking their dams for sport would have yellowbelly and bass together as it becomes more of a surprise when you catch something. You never know just what it will be. It is also good to have two species as sometimes fish are a bit fickle and they don’t bite. Generally in my dams that are stocked with both I catch a mixture of both species. However, some days I just constantly catch one species and not the other as one is just not biting that day.

Just be warned that predatory fish such as bass and Yellowbelly will eat their own fingerlings when you restock. Restocking a dam with large predatory fish such as Bass or Yellowbelly just means that you should stock with 50% more to make up for any losses that may occur.
