Aquaponic Gardening

A Community and Forum For Aquaponic Gardeners

Hey Natalie, I don't know of suppliers in Ontario, as I'm from out West, and know of Tilapia in B.C. and Alberta, not sure how the shipping would work. Have you talked with aquarium shops? Never Know!

Hmmm I hadn't thought of Aquarium shops....
I've been looking for a breeding pair of Tilapia with little success. I think groups like these are great for sharing resources, contacts, etc...
Eric, do you know of a Tilapia seller in BC?

Number 5 :)
Yo Darrin, I'm in the Upper Columbia Valley, ( near Radium Hot Springs), and am aware of a local grower with a number of tanks, with tilapia
Lo Darrin, I was trying to figure out how to edit my reply withing the time period, however ------ The grower in question is also wanting to sell all his tanks and equipment, although it is more aquaculture than aquaponics, I have some pictures if it's a matter of interest.
Hey Eric,

I'm not ready for more than a breeding pair right now. I just started gathering materials for the greenhouse but would like to get few Tilapia for our 30 gallon aquarium, the Convicts will have to find a new home!

Lo Darrin - I'll include the link, in talking with them, they are not interested in selling parts and pieces, only the whole setup.
There are some you tube videos of tilapia at the University of Victoria, in case that's an option for you. They may also know if there is anyone closer to you.

Good luck, Eric
Thanks Eric,

I got an email yesterday with a potential Tilapia source in the Vancouver area.
I'll post the results.

I'm on Vancouver Island and am looking for some Tilapia fingerlings.  Any ideas?

 

Hi Steve,

 

I am on the Island as well, and I am looking for fingerlings. If you source some out and want someone to go in on them with you, let me know.

 

Thanks,

 

Mark
