I just dropped in at the Woodvale Fish Farm to get some rainbow trout for my backyard aquaponics set-up. These will grow fast over the cool months, with a harvest time of September/October.
While there, I also got some small silver perch. These will take 2-3 years to grow to plate-size without rushing them.
Before introducing them to my tanks, I gave them a good vet-check, and they all have a clean bill of health!
I’ll enjoy feeding them, and watching them grow. Here’s me playing fish farmer.
