I am in Pasadena, Texas and have been looking at where to buy and what to buy when I am ready. Right now I have a very small test system up and running recently. It is a 50 gal. hard pond with a small kids hard plastic pool for the grow bed, I will get pictures posted later. Here are the companies that I have found so far. The first one is in Kansas and the rest are located in Texas.

White Nile Tilapia. I found them Facebook.

Freshwater Prawns (Macrobrachium rosenbergii) I talked with Craig Upstrom the owner and he was very nice and helpful on the phone.

This last one is a list of all the fish farms in Texas. This might make it easy for someone to find one close to them.

I have not used any of these places yet. I only have some Shubunkin Goldfish in my pond at this time. My lettuce, strawberries and cilantro are doing great.
There are a TON of suppliers out there, just depends on the species you are looking for. Ive used Aquasafra for Tilapia and they were very healthy (qty-1000, $100). You can buy from them at tilapiaseed.com. Ive got a large book of fingerling providers if anyone has a specific species you want to find in your area.
I get my catfish fingerlings from an elderly man near me. Less than an hour from Beaumont or an hour and 15 mins. from downtown Houston. About 5" long and  $ .50 each.
I'm not far away in Magnolia (NW Houston). Planning on doing a proof of concept rig later this year. I am leaning toward redear sunfish (bluegill) and maybe crawfish. Would love to raise yellow perch but I think the heat will kill them. :(

I've contacted Ted Hill and out of the biz. 

I'll edit my list.

Hey Ryan,

Thanks, I'm looking for Hawaiian Gold's and I'm in the Los Angeles area.

Thank you for your replies!

Overton Fish farm is midway between Dallas and Houston on I-45. They tell me there is no minimum order if the customer picks up the fish themselves. They will pack in an oxygenated bag inside a box for transport or you can bring your own container-aerator set up.
