Hi Jon. I have a 160 acre open land that I would love to start Aquaponics farming. I live in South Africa where poverty if rife and would like to start a comercially viabile veggie and fish farm whereafter use the knowledge to pass on to the many poor communities. Like you I am in the construction business and am able to do a lot of the construction and building of facilities myself whch would be a huge saving. However I need to get some info/plans/layout ideas together with info/litriture on farming techniques etc
I am a fellow califonian (San Jose specifically) and I am fairly new to aquaponics. I am currently using goldfish in my IBC system, but I would like to change catfish and tilapia. I read one of your posts that you were selling some frys. Are you still selling them and do you have any available? I would love you buy some from you. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. thanks in advance.

I'm new to this siteso you can call me if that makes it quicker and easier 978 856 5086... thank you for your time... Steven
Hey Jon, Life gets in the way. We are doing well. The usual life struggles but we love it here and trout fingerlings are right down the road. Doesn't get much better than that. Our Gh is slowly getting done (the DWC bed is finally on line) but our "castle" drains off most of our time and $. Sold over 400 siphons on Ebay now but everyone and their brother are jumping aboard thinking it is an easy buck. They soon learn.
I saw on a post that you had sacramento perch. Can you give me any information on raising them? Do you still raise them? I am interested in natives and they look interesting, but hard to find info on/source.
Since you are doing such a big project I thought you might be interested in a guy I met in Ohio who is working on a commercially produce Black Soldier fly animal feed. I visited his facility and he has already produced 20 tons of fish food and performing growth tests on fish.
Let me know if you are interested in talking to him and I will make the connection.
