Who We Are

Producers of Quality Fish for Recreation and Aquaculture

In 1981 we began when Paul Williams and his business partner, the late Ed Owen started producing channel catfish fingerlings for local growers. Since then we have grown to be the only producer of triploid grass carp in Georgia. Today, Brian Simmons is the CEO of Owen and Williams Fish Farm. We specialize in providing fish for stocking lakes and ponds.
