Black crappie are utilized solely for stocking in smaller lakes or pools, over 2 acres, as they are less prolific compared to the white crappie, yet still have terrific reproductive potential. That being stated they too need to be collected somewhat greatly to maintain from overpopulating. Harvesting gives the other fish space to turn into good slabs for the table.
White crappie has an incredibly high reproductive capability and also could overpopulate in a physical body of water that is not big enough to support their numbers. While there is absolutely nothing incorrect with them, they are not utilized in pond stocking or increased commercially.
