Building our first aquaponic system has been an adventure. Last year we started with 104 tilapia, purchased from Universidad Nacional Agraria (UNA) in Managua, Nicaragua. Being new to aquaponics, a lot of what we have learned has been from internet research and hands on experience.
Tilapia is a good choice of fish for an aquaponic system because they grow fast, they are disease resistant, and they can handle a wide range of pH levels. They also need a warmer climate which makes them a great choice here.
