I'm considering a outside and backyard scale Aquaponic system and I live in Kansas City, Missouri.
My question is will I have time to grow out tilipia, say up to 1 or 11/2 pounds during the growing season (May to August/Sept)??? I want to freeze filets for winter cosumption along with all the vegies.
Thanks for your input!
I am in central Iowa and I am thinking of digging an in ground pool with pondliner measuring 2ft deep X3ftX16ft under my GB. This will be all in a 16X10 ft greenhouse. That may help to insulate my pool in the cooler months supplemented by minimal heating to prolong the growing season of the fish. But on the flip side, it will also take longer to heat up in the spring. I am thinking of raising Yellow Perch instead of Tilapia. I also have a chiller that I bought at a university surplus to chill the water if I have to, in the heat of Summer for perch. Any opinion will be much appreciated.
