I stumbled upon these terms in a text related to Pisciculture (fish farming).
I've looked on Google and Google-books but I couldn't find any type of definition.

P.S. Please let me know if I posted it in the right community.

  • $\begingroup$ Do you mean natural ponds, or (since you reference Pisciculture) artifical ones? For natural ponds, there are many hereabouts (Sierra Nevada) that are filled by rain & snow melt in the spring, but evaporate during the summer. Searching for "vernal pool" or "vernal pond" might get you more info. $\endgroup$ – jamesqf Dec 13 '16 at 19:58

Seasonal ponds are ponds that only exist for part of the year. Jamesqf covered it well in his comment. There is just a wide variety of terms explaining the same thing. The terms were originally used more for streams (Perennial water), but it has slid into broader usage.
