Does anyone know where i can get fingerlings from in Perth?
If you're after trout... give Gavin (Troutman) a buzz... http://www.fergusonsprings.com/
He's in Bunbury... and does a run through Perth about every second weekend...
I was originally living in Bunbury
I'm really looking for Jade Perch and Yabbies though.
Should have specified that originally
Why yabbies ... and not marron??
Jade Perch might be a bit hard to come by over in WA... unless you fly them in...
Silver Perch aren't a problem though...
Marron Sounds even better.
Silver perch is fine. Whats the best eating fish one can grow in a AP system in WA?
Hi try this
I tryed to get silver perch 9 weeks ago with no luck.
I went to trout from Gavin he delivers to ellenbrook
got yabbies at the moment and carnt wate to change to marrom
Thanks for the relpys. Now I just need to get my system running
I've just heard of a shop selling fresh Tilapia in Perth. An African gent was telling me with GREAT emotion how much his family love to eat them. This man from Ghana tells me he pays $45.00 for 18 fish.
I'm not sure what the procedure is. Can we sell fresh fish direct to shops? Or is there gov't red tape involved?
Yes a little red tape - and possibly a knock at the door from WA Fisheries if you breed and have in your possession or sell live Tilapia.
Whoa! I'm stunned. Wasn't expecting that reply Castaway...thank you for this very important message.
Youtube is packed with videos about Tilapia grown in Aquaponic/Aquaculture systems.
Misleading for a newbie.
It was probably whole chilled/frozen Thai Tilapia.... not live...
if you give tony a call at freo tafe they sell
barra fingerlings $1.00 each
black bream fingerlings $1.00 each
Fremantle TAFE eh? Great news, thanks Shane. :genius:
Yep... except you don't want to be stocking Barra over winter... unless you're going to throw a kilowatt or two of heating in your tank...
And black bream take about 40,000 years to grow....
Silver Perch are by far the best starter fish, and if you can get them in your area and your winters are not too cold, Jade Perch are hard to beat as an easy fish to start out with.
