Fishiding artificial fish habitat products have been the leader of innovative forms of strictly reclaimed, PVC fish habitat since 2008, focusing on fish growth and reproduction. Flexible limbs of all sizes and massive surface area, produce shade, food and protection. From fine shallow water fry/forage cover to tall spires of vertical cover, Fishiding artificial habitat products simply put, help grow more fish.



 Artificial habitat products utilizing reclaimed pre and post consumer rigid PVC without manufacturing. Unlike standard recycling which requires breaking down to re-manufacture, by using reclaimed materials no additional plastics, chemicals or energy are needed. By re-using existing un-wanted materials, a multitude of advantages continue to emerge. Each individual habitat model is unique with no two units being exactly the same, creating unlimited textures and variety, closely mimicing nature and what fish prefer.


18 individual and unique models offer variety in size, texture, shape and densities, creating a protective multitude of fishiding locations.

 Fishiding habitat products are made from reclaimed rigid PVC Vinyl materials destined for landfills. Our patented process allows the re-use of this clean, safe and stable material without reprocessessing. Dozens of models are achieved by simply washing, cutting and displaying in various configurations with proper base diameters, balance and weight. No heat, chemicals, parts or adhesives, tools or additional supplies are needed to install.

 Handmade artificial habitat products, each individual habitat unit is unique, with no two units being exactly the same.

 In general, each unit consists of a rigid PVC base, various lengths, widths and sizes of flat limbs  which models can be bent by hand to form intricate and realistic aquatic plant textures and cover and others models simply unwrap and get dropped directly in the lake. Fishiding habitat units also provide wide, shade producing cover along with textured and weathered surfaces throughout, promoting periphyton and algae growth, creating food for aquatic life.

The Cradle model above was one of three original models and still the only truly dense shallow artificial habitat on the market. Thousands have been installed coast to coast, continuing to protect annual spawns and newly hatched fry. Still catering to the little guys.

All habitat units come with self standing incorporated weight and can be bent into the desired shape before being placed in the water by tossing overboard or “planting” on a dry lake bed. Individual habitat models range between $25.00 and $325.00 ea. with surface area ranging from 10 Square feet to 255 square feet per unit.

From 24" tall fine, dense models, up to three piece models  standing vertical up to 15 feet tall on any slope with Vertical UpRiseTM. No tools or hardware are used to assemble ANY Fishiding habitat products, just bend the limbs with your hand to the desired shape and place in lake.



Materials:  Materials consist of reclaimed PVC vinyl materials and cement. We have always been firm in using only reclaimed pvc materials, destined for landfills. We don't support the manufacture and use of more plastics into our environment for fish habitat, instead we simply utilize what is being discarded by reclaiming the already millions of tons of rigid PVC wasted each year and buried the majority of which is pre-consumer waste.


Textures: The unlimited degrees of texture, shape and flexibility, allow fish to escape and flourish within the realistic maze of smooth and snag free limbs, strands and shade producing cover.


   Structures should be placed in clusters of three or more to improve mass and effectiveness, with limbs just touching adjacent unit.  Varying base weights and diameters ensure vertical stability. Each unit is hand made in the USA.

  lifespan of structure:  Long term, indefinitely if un-exposed to UV light and air.
