Post aquaponics
This link needs a thread of it's own. Thanks Asus109, what a great website, worth having a look at everyone. It's definately down on my plan for next year. Trout in the suburbs, who would have thought. ;)

that's the site, I quoted it wrong in the other thread. Its full of aussies, so 90% of the info there is relevant. They do have a beginners magazine but most of the information in it can be gleaned from the site.
Again I recommend reading the thread by outbackozzie which I'll will attempt to find for you all.

Its a long read but well worth watching the progression!

That looks so cool!

Just about all the guys I work with are keen fishermen, and Im not. But I quiet like to eat 'em.

And they constantly come back from a trip down the caost spending a fortune on fuel for their boats and fishing gear and cme back with nothing and complaining about the congestion at the boat ramps.

Walking out to the back yard and "picking" a fish sounds like much more fun ;)

Julieann I think we need to add a number 7 to the list of things to do in my garden - I see youve already added it to your list ;)

I already have a small to medium sized fish pond, when I find out how many litre's it holds I'll be wanting to get fish asap. If I can trial it in the next 6 months I'll let you know how it goes. I'm off to find a raising trout website.

Nothing wrong with the good old yabbie. My sister and I used to catch them in the front dam - not lobster, but my mum used to make something tasty from them although I forget what because I was about ten at the time!!
