If there were a Shire fishfarm...
« on: April 22, 2010, 05:17 AM NHFT »

Mulling around the idea of fish farming at Hoyt.  This is what I did in the peace corps, and I enjoyed it.  The other day it occurred to me that there's already a pond here, which might require only small modifications to go into fish production.  Was wondering how much interest there'd be in the fish raised, or being able to come out and fish in the pond (not too challenging, but fun for kids).

The pond is kind of small. You could only deploy the Dupont Spinner Lure once.

I might buy trout in bulk, but not catfish.  What kind would be in the farm?

I definitely don't want to do trout.  They're too fussy about water temperature and air.  Other possibilities are bass, bluegill, catfish, bull head.

I think it's too cold to raise tilapia here.  On the plus side, NH isn't likely to see any alligators in the fish ponds.  :o

Can you use that Dupont Spinner Lure now?  I think my pond needs to be bigger.

You might also be able to consider carp... another thing to do would be to do some testing of the pond to make sure there aren't contaminants you wouldn't want to eat in there before you get too far along in planning. Just a thought! :-)

Not if you want to market them to eat.  :lil_alien:
