Cradle artificial shallow fry habitat


Product Description

The Cradle shallow fry and forage habitat has been around for over ten years, protecting fish from coast to coast. Each compact and dense habitat unit, protects young life of numerous forms in thier most vulnerable lifestage. Fine, soft strands of clean pvc grow food for these young creatures to graze upon in safety.

Recommended for depths of 1-4 feet, groups of this intricate and abstract fish habitat, start the food chain and give fish places to hide. In order to grow big fish, you need to grow the smaller food fish, first. Use the Cradle model to replace lost vegetation, wood and other lost natural habitat, which normally hides and protects the youngest of aquatic critters.

Each ten pound habitat unit has over 30 square feet of surface area to grow important periphyton/algae for food.

When the bait or forage fish are big enough, they venture out to the deeper, mid depth habitat to begin to hunt on their own. When they mature, the same fish will return to the area to spawn, allowing the next generation of fry to utilize the protective Cradle cover.

To create a balanced aquatic ecosystem and have the food base/forage be self sustaining, young fish must be able to hide long enough to grow to the preferred size for you predator fish. We want those panfish about 3"-5" before Mr. Bass gets ahold of them for a good meal.
