Sometime around 1988, I was a farmer and I went to a talk down near the Salton Sea and the farms down there were really BIG on aquaculture and just
getting into it, many had shallow 1 acre reservoirs and they said they could produce TONS of fish flesh a year.
It is REALLY hot in that area, thus the BIG production, and very salty water including ground water but they COULD grow Cat Fish with big production
so they were happy.
I think they ended up having problems selling Cat Fish, because it is a low quality fish, but they may have switched to something else I have no way
That was back when many farmers in California were looking to get into Aquaculture as the NEXT BIG CROP
