I have about 50 small walleye in my system, my favorite fish to eat...  But my system is largely bass and catfish, the fish my wife likes to eat.  I'm hoping I can bring them from fingerlings to edible.  They're about three to four inches now and hold their own with the other game fish.

Ken - whether you raise largemouth bass or walleye, you are going to have major problems with either fish eating each other.  Walleye are also very susceptible to disease.  I thought yellow perch were pretty popular in Mich.?  That might be the perfect fish for you.  Just a thought.  Good luck!

ken, look into raising pellet trained, large mouth bass, they bring 4.50/lb live wt. they are easer than walleye and get a better feed conversion.   greg

Hi. I am involved with a start up aquaponics commercial venture in Livonia Michigan. Because we are in Michigan we are looking at using cold water fish such as Walleye to use in our systems. The species of Tilipia that is used in Aquaponic systems seems to be restriced from aqualculture production in Michigan. I am looking forward to learning past experiences and challenges of Walleye and other cold water fish in an aquaponic system. Thanks!

Cool!  Now we have 5!   I'm glad to see I'm not the only one interested in Walleye Aquaponics here :-)

I'm so excited!  Now we have 3 in our group.  Welcome, K!

Yeay!  My group has two people! 

Yes, I downloaded the whole text chapter by chapter.  I noticed many other sites on walleye kept referencing this book, so I figured it was worthwhile to have! :-)  I started reading sections of it already.

Walleye Culture Manual is the bible of walleye books!!!!  I purchased one on the original copies many years ago.  Tons of useful information!!!!!

Also, I found a place where the textbook "Walleye Culture Manual" can be downloaded chapter by chapter for reading.   Go to

I found an interesting website sheet that talks about various considerations in Walleye raising.
I am posting it here, so that it is easy to go back to it, if needed... both for myself and for anyone interested in this possibility.
