Here's a good example of a nice indoor tilapia farm. It's a 1000 gallon pool in a basement converted into an aquaculture farm.
He has around 200 fish, which will reach maturity in around 6 months, and he states will end up being around 500 pounds of fish.
Tilapia is low in nutrition. Tastes good though.
Hmmm! Smells fishy!
I want a crappie farm!
One tilapia fillet has over 25g protein, zero carbs, and lass than one gram of saturated fat. It also contains calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, zinc, vitamins A, B, D, E, and K, among others. So yes, Tilapia is in fact a healthy choice.
While I would not trust the USDA, Tilapia is a good choice for aquaponics. The tilapia that most of us see and are exposed to, in the grocery store, come from Chinese $#%&!@* Ponds, that, if you read labels, have Carbon Monoxide added to keep the meat pink, during it’s long swim, above the pond, to the US.

Why does everything good have to have some $#%&!@* being negative?
“Instead of using electric heaters, why not just run a filter hose outside to some black pipe in a solar frame and back in? You will only be using the power already set for the filter (no extra power for heating needed.”
