Well, there's that. Otherwise it's in the usual places, I.e. Freshwater ponds that aren't stagnant.

I don't know exactly what duckweed is. If you are looking for something like spiorogyra or water hyacinth there are plenty of both in various ponds and rivers. The ducks on my pond love to eat water hyacinth and I collect a truck bed full of the studd from the ditches be the side of the road every time I visit Belize City.
Other pnd weeds I just pull from the river where they are abundant.

Duck weed is very common in TX. It's a tiny, green, floating plant. I even saw some at the Berlin, Germany zoo in a small pond where the wart hogs were eating it. Check with someone like DuPlooy's Botanical Garden who might know of a source.

I'm looking for Lemna Minor also know as duckweed. It is a tiny floating plant that cleans water & is used as Talapia food & also for farm animals ie ducks, chickens & pigs. I'm sure it is in Belize but I have checked a lot of ponds & haven't found it. It won't grow in fast moving streams.

Checked with DuPlooy's & they couldn't help. Can't belive people that raise Ducks, chickens, talipia etc. don't know about this. It takes no care, contains 45% protein & doubles its mass in 7 days.
