is this josh from cabrillo?
I think there is a trout farm in half moon bay or near there. They might have fingerlings. Dont know the name, but Deluxe foods in RDM buys from them and may tell you how to contact them.
Trout need very high O2 levels, pretty fast moving water as i heard, very high protein in their food and cold water that will make it hard to grow plants.
have you contacted the dept of fish and game?
The fish guy was a guy helping Watsonville HS with an aquaculture program but did not get going, and I can no longer find his contact info.
another spot to try is Phils fish market, not for fish but for leads on people with fish
Ship to Shore Aquafarms in Bakersfield has channel cats, no trout. Let me know if you find anyplace closer for either.
Fantastic! I am not ready for fish yet, I wanted to make sure of what was readily available before I designed my systems. I would love to get more info from you on the different varieties you have because I was considering the benefits of combining a few species in the same tank. Is it possible you would have time to meet with me for about an hour sometime in the next few weeks so I could pick your brain about the varieties that you offer? It would be helpful for me to see your setup if you are open to that. I am just putting together a residential system but hope to use it as an educational tool to help others get set up as well, so I would like to have as much variety as I can. I have four 150 gal tanks so I will probably set up 3 separate systems using two joined together for the trout, not sure yet.
