Hello everyone, I would like to know how I could keep a channel catfish in arizona. I know you can use a stocking license for aquaponics (That's what I think, please correct me if you know). I would like to keep one or two of these guys inside my pond that I'm creating this september. I have not contacted fish and wildlife about this yet as I do not know which office to contact.
Any help is greatly appreciated

google your az fish and game and as a public state service they are required to have contact info on their website. call them and ask. I call mine c onsistently when I have a native question, the local CO for my area is really cool and enjoys talking fish.

I can apply for a stocking permit this allows u to stock a outdoor private pond a stocking permit allows u to stock fish for 30 days if u haven't finished stocking in that time just apply for another one
