Hi gang, I'm Dave and I live in the northwestern part of Sydney Australia. I know a little about Permaculture, having done a PDC course some years ago. I have been aware of "fish farming" for a while. I used to enjoy having plenty of yabbies in my dams (ponds to the Yanks) while living up north in Queensland about a decade ago, but I have done very little since I came back to the big smoke. I am now looking quite seriously about setting up a small Aquaponics system in my small backyard. Cheers for now, Dave
Hi I had a back injury in 2005 and I can no longer work full time, also I had a daughter born in 2007 with a bowel disease that has affected 75% of of her large and small bowel hence she is very sick so and has to undergo a major operation in a week to remove all of her diseased bowel which will leave her 35cm of small intestine, very scary aside all that I would like to start a profitable Yabbie farming business in my back yard if possible to supply local restaurants with live and pickled Yabbie is there a system of aquaculture that can accommodate this? I already have a pond/pool with approx 150 yabbies which are breeding at present I have been feeding them Lupins and the occasional feed of veggie scraps. I really want to know if I need to separate the pregnant females or remove the large males. If there is a system that is affordable and proven I would like to know about it cheers, loc
