Backyard Fish Farming

Backyard fish farming is a lot like vegetable gardening. Feed family and friends year-round from a sustainable source of food.

This aquaculture system in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Island, yields several hundred pounds of red tilapia each year. These cages have demand feeders — the fish strike a rod that releases food pellets into the water.
