These are all good options for cooler weather locations, but they grow more slowly than tilapia. You just have to deal with that or find some way to keep your water warm.
I'd like to do tilapia as they have the best growth-to-feed ratio, but the winters here make that difficult. One thing I've thought of is growing tilapia for 8-9 months in an aquaponics system, but then what do I do for the other 3-4 months to keep the system running properly? Any thoughts?
