I am still a bit of a newbie, so I am not sure how all elements of a property "fit in" to a permaculture framework. We have 12 acres with about 6 cleared. We have retirement property with a spring fed, 1/2 acrepond stocked with bass and bream. So...
1) what uses exist for such a pond?
2) is it big enough to use for growing a sufficient number of fish to use as a food source? (At the deepest point, it is probably 8 to 12 feet deep)
3) if so, what type of fish?
4) what else do I need to know about ponds and permaculture?
