    Hey Sean,

    I’m curious where you get your fish from and what type of fish are you using? We are looking at Tilapia (we can keep the water temperatures up fairly easily as our system is being built in a heated garage) but alternately, perch. We have been having trouble finding live fish or live fish eggs thus far (though everything else has come together nicely and we already use a smaller system stocked with goldfish to start our seeds.)

    • Sean:

      At the moment we are using just regular feeder fish from the pet store. As we are still mainly in the experimental stages, setup, crops, environment, etc, we are not wanting to put too much into the fish just yet.

      Sorry for the late response :(

    What kind of licensee’s do you need in Winnipeg. I am very interested in setting up a system for the family, and would want to use feed fish like Talpia
