While there are many kinds of fish that can be used in Aquaponics, we use Tilapia. For us this is a very versatile fish that can handle our Hawaiian climate well.

  • Warm water species (at least 60 F : 15 C).
  • Spawns year round in warm water (23 C).
  • Breeding is generally 1 male to 3-4 females.
  • 75 - 300 Eggs / Female.
  • The female incubates and broods the eggs in her mouth.
  • Depending on the species they can grow up ro 1 inch or 2.5 cm per month and produce young for 5 years.
  • They are good eating and we would generally perge the fish for at least 2 days before harvesting.
