First Tilapia Harvest!
Here is our first harvest from the system. These are the non dominant males which leaves us with 4 females and 2 dominant males for our breeding colony. The system was just getting overwhelmed with the amount of fish so we had to harvest these to keep it in safe conditions for the others. The largest of these weighed 2 1/4 lbs gutted. The others all weighed in over 2 lbs. We threw them in the freezer till we find some good recipes to try out.

Cahora Bassa Mozambique - the Dream III
The future had been planned. The Direction had been traced and discussed. On the international horizon, wolves in the outside were looking how to take control of these resources. This Dam complex was never finished in its totality, and was supposed to be the first between other bigger projects that only now, after 40 years, are starting to happen, but the biggest of all, which was the irrigation project, is still to be made into reality. These foreign powers, from creating and supporting armed bandits to destroy the future of Mozambique and its people, and to take over its resources, the scheme was mounted, and Frelimo took the power in 1974. Today the terrorrist liders of Frelimo govern Mozambique, occupy the houses of the whites in Somershield, drive big Mercedes 300SL, and without having ever worked in their lifes, or collected a bag of potatoes in the planalt of Angonia, they continue to call themselves the liberators of the peoples of Mozambique, and to rob into offshores all money from NGOºs and other public state companies, or nationalised private companies.

Aquaponics System Design - Selecting and Adding Fish
Check out this video to learn more about selecting, shipping, and adding new fish to your aquaponics system. I have had my system running for about a year now with my feeder gold fish and it is finally time to get some real fish started! The only way an aquaponics system is sustainable is if you are using edible fish that can help to supplement the costs of running your system and that day is finally here for us. I have done quite a bit of research and pondering on the question of which fish to get for our system here in the basement. After careful consideration I chose to go with breed of Tilapia called Blue Tilapia. There are quite a few different options in the Tilapia line but the Blue breed is and good all around choice for us. They survive in colder temps, breed less often, but grow quickly to a weigh of about 6-8 pounds. I had considered perch as well but in the end the benefits of the Tilapia breeds outweighed the options I had for perch. There are other options out there as well and I would recommend doing some research to determine what will work best in your own system. What are your water temps? Do you heat the tanks year round? how much room do you have for breeding? These are many of the questions you need to be asking when looking for your ultimate aquaponics fish choice. Finding a reliable supplier is key and one of the hardest things to do when you first get started. I was originally trying to find something local, a fishery or sporting goods store. There are some options but nothing for the fall or winter months when I wanted to get mine started. I finally found an excellent website called fishkis.com with the best prices I was able to find anywhere. I immediately placed my order in the dead of winter (below 0). My first order arrived all dead:( However, unlike many companies today the folks at fishkis worked with me right away for a reshipment when weather was a bit warmer and a few weeks later I received my full order plus 15 free fish! All were alive, healthy, and happy little Tilapia swimming around in their shipping bad. I am excited to get these fish growing and put into the system to start feeding my plants and getting ready to provide my family with many future meals. I will be slowly getting rid of the goldfish this summer and finding them suitable homes. Check back for the progress (and likely mistakes) along the process of growing out these fish!

Using fish to build resiliency to food insecurity in Malawi
To help build resilience to food insecurity in Malawi, the Malawi Red Cross Society and its partners are implementing a number of small scale long-term interventions with sustainable impact. This includes fish farming, where participants are provided with training and the tools needed to create a pond, stock it, and maintain it. Recipients say the fish has benefitted them in that it provides additional nutrients to their diets, and they can sell the fish for additional income. This, in turn, helps them operate small businesses and send their children to school. The project adopted a diversified approach and included activities such as bee keeping, fish farming, small scale irrigation, backyard gardens, and livestock production. 210 people were selected in 15 villages to be part of the activity which resulted in the establishment of 22 small scale irrigation schemes. People received a treadle pump, fertilizer, seeds, and training. The training included how to prepare fields for irrigation, how to set up the treadle pump which resulted in a wider area of cultivation for them, knowledge about different types of crops and techniques such as crop rotation. Recipients say because of these interventions they now have enough food for their families, as well as surplus which they sell. They use the money to purchase additional supplies to prepare for the next planting season.
