Has anyone here give a thought to hydroponic gardening using Tilapia fish? Even on a small scale it has entered my mind because 70% of the fish we consume comes from China raised in sewer and slag pits. :usa:

We do it as part of my Animal Science and Plant Science classes in my school. Honestly, it's like having another child to care for some days. We've mostly been raising the fish for a few years now but have recently added the hydroponic option as an independent study alternative for some of our students but it is on a very small scale - maybe enough for a meal or 2. PM me if you have any specific questions.
