Can cold climate edible fish be bred in a quarry pond? Assuming there could be some kind of inlet directed to the quarry but no outlet, would it work? is there a place to start with researching this question? Thanks.

I know it's possible because I used to live by a park that had all species of fish (trout, bass, crappie, catfish, etc...) in an old quarry pond. This would be my dream to have something like this but I don't have the topology to do so. Remember, trout need lots of oxygen so a waterfall inlet would probably be good.
You'd also need to research what kind of predatory animals will come and feed on the fish, whether they be the 4-legged kind or predatory birds. From the air a lot of fish swimming around would be real tempting. Don't know what kind of cover you could put over it.
