On the delivery of live bait to the reservoir and in the opposite direction should carefully consider and pay close attention to this topic (unless of course you do not want to say goodbye to it).
The best option is to use cannes.
Canna is a capacity of low structure with increased throat. The shape of such a vessel minimizes the transfusion of water during transportation.
The only bad thing is that this item is very difficult to acquire, due to its low prevalence in the territory of our state. In this regard, the movement of fish occurs in cans or buckets. True, these tanks are rather inconvenient and during the ride water is poured out in large quantities from them, moreover, they are unstable and often turn over. This method of transportation is good only for people who live near the pond.
For a long distance, usually, the fish is launched into a plastic bottle or into a canister.
The main thing - do not forget about aeration. The tank should be filled with water half, it helps to mix it with air.Periodically open the tank for filling with oxygen (you can blow there or buy a device for filling the vessel with air, in the form of a pear with a tube, pressing which improves gas exchange).
It does not contribute to the continuation of the life of the fish and the “dangling” of the vessel during transportation, it gets tired and requires more oxygen pumping. It is desirable that the vessel is transparent for the rays of light to enter it. In this case, several branches of vegetation placed in tara will produce the process of photosynthesis and, thereby, add oxygen to the vessel in a natural way.
