Business Specializes In Everything "Fish"This company is a one-stop center for anything to do with fish. They supply aerators, fountains, food, chemicals and more, along with the fish themselves. They even provide lake management consulting services.
Jones Fish and Lake Management at Newtown, Ohio, was started in 1948 by Robert Lee Jones. His grandson, Robert P. Jones, now runs the company and says business is good.
"Our customer base pretty much spans the gamut û we've stocked everything from private farm ponds to Central Park in New York City," Jones says.
The company carries 15 species of game fish and seven ornamental fish varieties, along with bullfrogs, turtles and Japanese trap door snails.
Orders of $150 (fish only) include free state-wide delivery in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana and there's limited free delivery to Michigan, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Illinois. Nationwide delivery is available for an extra cost. Products other than fish can be shipped to Canada.
"Sizes of fish are seasonal, but we will do our best to accommodate your order," Jones says.
Here are a few examples of prices:
Largemouth black bass (2 to 3-in. size) - $99 per 100; (12-in. and up) - $10.50 per lb.; Japanese Koi (2 to 4-in.) - $4 ea. or (8 to 10-in.) - $18 ea.
