Well, started researching tilapia, am getting more interested in raising them. the only hurdle is the size tank and temp needed for the water in the grow out tank. Seen some very good ideas already, am just starting to read more about it. If we do it, will definitely be doing veggies/aquaponics eventually as well. It may be a summer only project too, would get really expensive heating that much water in the winter. I am seeing them available more now and have those 3 big fish tanks just sitting empty.
We used to fish all summer, and bring in the big hybrid striped bass from the lake. Just not a lot of time for camping & fishing this last year, miss the fresh fish! My FIL taught me to filet with an electric knife, sure makes it go fast. I can do it almost as quick with my good filet knife too.
