·        Stocking Density (kg/1000ltr):

·        Survival (%):

·        FCR:

·        Will eat just about anything and crude protein in feed (%):

·        Pro's:

·        Cons:

·        Average wholesale price/kg:


Any comments or suggestion are welcome.

Hi Rafi

Welcome to APN/HQ

I'm a bit currious about how you came to choose hybrid bluegill as specie of choise ?

Specialy after the question you posted on coral trouts status profil the other day http://aquaponicsnation.com/forums/profile/723-coral-trout/?status=246&type=status

where you wanted to raise a saltwater specie ?

Maybe you should try look for a localy available specie for you, that way it would be easier to figure average wholesale price etc. in Jordan, unless you plan to export the fish ?

This "Fish Selection for Aquaponics" guide,  might be usefull  http://www.uwsp.edu/conted/ConfWrkShp/Documents/aquaponics/IAC Hartleb 2013.pdf


Anyhow bcotton have a thread with some on BG here
