Habitat Installation Service
The addition of submerged habitat is critical to maintaining a balanced, productive fishery. Without these structures, ponds have very few forage fish that survive predators long enough to reproduce.
- Shallow habitat for fry and forage
- Deepwater habitat for ambush predators
- Suitable for new or existing ponds
All of our staff are highly trained in their responsibilities, from degree-holding science professionals to licensed applicators and experienced repair technicians.

Our 110+ biologists understand the delicate dynamics of aquatic ecosystems and maintain a balance of health and beauty.
What We Do
Whether you’re managing for trophy largemouth bass or just want a good fishing hole for the grandkids, submerged habitat is vital to the success of your fishery.
These submerged structures can be installed prior to the pond or lake being full, or after it has filled with water. In new ponds with no water, structures can be perfectly placed and staked down with rebar or cinder block. In existing ponds, the self-weighted structures can be dropped into the water from a boat.
Submerged structures should be placed in multiple locations and at varying depths throughout the pond or lake. The amount of habitat varies depending on the pond size. In ponds with less than 1 surface acre, Jones Lake Management recommends 35-45 structures per acre. In ponds and lakes larger than 1 acre, Jones Lake Management recommends 25-35 structures per acre.
Combine Services for Best Results
We can even combine our EcoSound lake mapping technology with the fish habitat installation service. Depth measurements will be taken to ensure proper placement of each structure. We can also mark GPS waypoints showing the location of your structure and sync that data to a bathymetric map of your pond. Combining lake mapping with habitat installation will help you and your guests see exactly where fish will be hiding.
