Ideally, I would like to diversify a planned aquaponic tank of around 900 gallons with a mussel, a panfish, and a species of crayfish. I like the idea of the yellow perch since my family hates…Continue
Good luck with it. I had fun growing the first batch of trout even though it wasn't a huge success. With a bigger fish tank and more growing space, you may not have as much trouble with them. Let us know how it goes.
Trout were a challenge for me because I had a 150 gallon tank and limited grow bed space with my indoor system. I think the trout got very territorial in my small tank and growth rates were lowered by that aggressive behavior. You've got twice the tank space and a greenhouse for the grow beds, so you'll probably get better results than I did. A lot of people do very well with trout in their AP systems.
Did you already have this link to the application for pond stocking? They list some trout hatcheries. You could always try growing trout if you don't have your heart set on perch.
i was looking for info about getting fish in maine.. looks like it kinda sucks! (sorry)
have you tried contacting the inland fisheries department?
congrats on the system..
you probably won't have much lucking catching wild fish and transferring them to your system..they'll be pretty difficult to feed train..
do you know anyone with a pond, or know of any ponds in your area? some areas have "fish trucks" that make seasonal deliveries, and will advertise on craigslist, a good place to check is your county soil and water division..
yellow perch are a very mild sweet tasting fish with white flesh.. they're considered a cool water species and will be ok with temps up to the mid 80's but will start to stress.. trout are a cold water species and won't do very well when the water hits the mid 70's.. both should be fed a high protein fish food
