We can help you put together a great Fish House Garden with everything you need -- greenhouse, water system and planting systems. But first, you will want to think about your answers to a few questions:
How many people do you want to feed? This is really a question about what size Fish House Garden you want.
Where will you put your Fish House Garden? Walk around your yard and think about it. It could go in your backyard, the side of your house, or even a driveway. Or a basement or porch.
What's your climate like? Because we are on San Juan Island and you are probably in the Pacific Northwest, we have a general idea about your climate, but anything extra you can tell us will help us figure out the perfect system for you.
Your turnkey system includes: Tilapia fingerlings (your first batch), insulated fish tank, heater, bubbler, settling tank, growing trays all plumbed with gravel and you get it all up and running with water.
