Mosquitofish Distribution Locations


The County of San Diego Vector Control Program offers FREE mosquitofish at several locations. Mosquitofish are used to help control mosquito breeding populations in green swimming pools, fountains and ponds.

You will only need a few mosquitofish initially. These fish reproduce and grow to fit their environment.  If you have too many fish, Vector Control can come and collect the extra fish. More tips on how to care for mosquitofish are available here. 

Mosquitofish are for backyard sources only. Do not release into streams, lakes or other natural bodies of water. 

Please call the distribution location you plan to visit in advance to ensure they have mosquitofish in stock.
