Peoria Tribe of Indians Aquatic Facility

Peoria Tribe of Indians Aquatic Facility The Peoria Tribe of Indians Aquatic facility specializes in the production of Northern Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass and freshwater mussel species.

The Peoria Tribe is continuing to develop a Tribal Aquatic complex. This facility is currently in operation to propagate freshwater mussels and production of Largemouth and Smallmouth bass. One building, a 2,800 square foot facility, will be used in propagation of freshwater mussels and Largemouth bass and Smallmouth bass production to be used as host fish for the mussel program. The second building, a 1,200 square foot facility, will be used to assist in the grow out of freshwater mussels such as the Neosho Mucket. The facility also has a 1.5 acre reservoir pond and seven production ponds for bass production. There are also three smaller shallower ponds that will be used to grow out minnows and other freshwater vertebrates such as crayfish for a food source for the bass production ponds.

When it comes to seining our ponds, our staff and interns are ALL IN!
This is the process of removing smallmouth broodfish from our spawning ponds. This happens once the eggs have hatched and turned into fry. We do this to limit predation of our young fish by the adult fish.
Stop by our office and get your application in by THIS FRIDAY, May 15th.

Salt test for our mussels. This is how we tell if they are viable. When the salinity changes in the water they are fooled in to thinking there is a fish they are touching so they close trying to clamp on to the fish.

This is an extreme case of shocking for Asian carp silver carp in this example. But this gives you idea of what other states are dealing with. Awareness and education is our best tool in fighting these. If you catch an Asian carp report it to your local game officials.

It’s absolutely crazy how many Asian carp there are in some of our rivers and lakes... It’s unfortunate, but luckily work is being done to find a solution. During a media session for the “BAFF” project yesterday KDFWR crews electroshocked and removed Asian carp to demonstrate just how densely populated our waterways can be.

I had the pleasure of visiting the facility last Thursday and was astounded by the excellent resources for raising fish and mussels. Justin and the crew take care in raising their fish with proven industry standards. Their facilities for propagating freshwater mussels were awesome. It seemed like they were having great success; there were so many small mussels at various sizes! They use known techniques to ensure great growth in their propogated mussels. I really liked how they fed their >1inch length mussels using a pump to bring water from a large pond. The flow through system is something I hope to emulate if I ever try to grow mussels. Their fish operation seemed excellent too. I liked their retirement pond for the very large bass they had and I got to see their breeding fish stock too (very big and ready to lay some eggs!). They also have a temp controlled transport tank so you know your fish will arrive with the least stress possible. I hope to keep working with Justin and the crew at this great facility. Thanks for helping river wildlife in Oklahoma!
