Sacramento's climate is pretty moderate but for a couple of months in winter it is cold enough that my bluegills don’t eat much, which slows down their growth and that of the plants in my aquaponics…Continue

The University of Wisconsin offers a nice online extension course on Fish Health.  It's aimed at "producers" (ie those who raise fish).  Most folks in aquaponics (including myself) are probably on a…Continue

Hi Paul. I'm new to this and designing my system. I'm confused about the Tilapia rules on California. I'm here in Sacramento as well so I thought I would reach out and ask if Tilapia is allowed for someone like me who is a hobbist and wants an awesome way to grow our food to feed our family. Any advise? Thanks for your time!

Thanks Paul for the welcome!  The first time my boyfriend and I came across AP was at the state fair last last year.  Yes, Sac's a bit of a trek for us, but at least same state and there is always the power of the internet.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the welcome.  I don't normally participate om forums/blogs so I don't know where to ask a question for people to respond to.

Thanks, Alan

Thanks Paul.  I was pleased to see you were part of the group.  I work for Sterling Caviar and Peter Struffenegger had just given me your phone number last week.  He labeled you as the Aquaponics Guru of our neighborhood.  Maybe we will chat sometime soon.

Thanks Paul,

Right now I'm at the stage of "OMG! I'll never figure out all these possibilities!" And like another post I read, mine has to fly by a very conventional Dad (95), while the kid (66) has to get all her ducks in a row before proposing the project. And money really IS an object unfortunately.

I'd love to connect w/ the gal in Sac since I'm so close in Chico. Once I get a little better grip I'm sure I'll be posting lot's of questions. Also plan on lot's of photo documentation.
