One of the best fish for aquaponics is Tilapia because it needs 1 gallon per fish to grow. I have not heard of any other fish that can grow so
densely packed, but then again I am new to this. Aquaponics is interesting to me but to start I believe the hardy Tilapia would be the best bet in my
area of the Central Valley... But you can't register Tilapia Aquaculture here so this is why I ask for advice to my survival bretheren. How difficult
is it to introduce this in your area and how cost effective would it be for you in relation to any other aquaponics fish.
For those who consider Bug-In concepts or want to have seeds, know-how and fish stock to move where it is safe and start anew, this is a possibility.
Loading up a truck with your seeds, fish frys, PVC piping, pumps and pond liners is possible and if the gas doesn't deplete before you reach your
destination then the know-how you carry is crucial. This compared to finding arable land, farm equipment and all the etc for traditional farming is
harder to move and sustain. Aquaculture uses 90% less water than traditiona farming.
Anyone buddy buddy with anyone in aquaculture registration in California Department of Fish and Wildlife?? I ask because if you are watching this
radioactive disaster to our pacific ocean, you might consider aquaculture as a means for continued fish consumption or as a hedge for hyper-inflation.
One of the best fish for this is the Tilapia but it can only be done in 6 counties; San Diego, Riverside, San Bernardino, Los Angeles, Imperial &
Orange. I am from the Central Valley and would like some input on how to register in aquaculture from scratch!
