You can raise just about any freshwater fish. I'm afraid sole is a saltwater fish, isn't it? People are raising catfish, perch, trout, and a variety of ornamental fish in the U.S. If you post some inquiries in the Fish Types forum I bet you will get a load of responses and suggestions.
I'm impressed that you are jumping into this even though you clearly have some reservations.

Once you have read the article, don't hesitate to get into the forums here and start asking questions. About half the members of this community are newbies just like you. good luck!
