I wonder if NZ will ever allow systems like this being taught in the US.

Aquaponics is a very interesting concept, but I wonder if we have much in the way of fish (exception being trout) which would be suitable.

Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S

It would probably never be made legal at that scale because the fish that tend to well in that system would most likely be considered pest fish here. I've seen several really cool set-ups when we still lived in the states, and all of them were using Tilapia. Really good eating fish, and grow like mad. Would it maybe work with eels??

I cant see why they should deny the use of Tilapia, it needs a temperature of 25C to 30C to survive and could not grow in the wild in NZ, unless they are just bloody minded that is.

Salmon, goes well I believe with these systems, not sure trout would be legal, but if it was for your own use maybe.[8D]
