I showed the pictures to my wife -- she said "Those plants are too crowded!"
I said "They look healthy to me!"
I'm impressed with the growth in one week! I can't wait to see how AP does under nearly continuous Alaskan sunlight.

I generally grow most of my plants the same way Ems, whether in the ground or in the beds, works for me... :)

Had a couple more Silver Perch for tea last night, without doing any purging, and they were beautiful...

They were 410g and 420g each, one would definately be enough for a meal, but I had to try two different methods of cooking them up for the comparison, so I pigged out on fish... :)

Joel, is that the standard size lighter or the "oh shit i've only got $1.50" mini-lighter?

I know that the jades and i'm fairly sure the silvers both store fat in their gut cavity. its a feast / famine thing, gets then through the tough times. It apparently melts very easily and can be use to cook the fish in.

taken from the ausyfish website

Quote:
The Silver Perch has a delightfully tender, melt-in-the-mouth quality. The jade Perch also posses this quality, but is a little firmer.


Flesh recovery is about 50%, depending on the size of the fish.

It is rare to find fat in the actual fillet of a Silver Perch, however it is common to find fat between the "flakes" of a Jade Perch fillet. This fat is not the white fat found in the body cavity but a translucent, jelly like fat. When the fillet is cooked it is relatively easy to cook out this fat as it melts in the pan easily. Having discussed the fat in these perch we should also say that the fat is one of the major selling points about our Perch.

The fat contained in these Perch is the "good" fat, omega-3. Follow the link for details of the omega-3 levels found in Silver Perch and Jade perch, and some of the benefits of omega-3. For the fish to readily use stored fat it is stored in the muscle tissue where it is needed the most. When fat is stored for easy use in the muscle tissue it is stored as omega-3. The fat within the body cavity, when tested had an omega-3content of 8.6% total fatty acids. This body cavity fat is less easy to use quickly and probably sustains the animal over long periods of so called famine.


Thats it, i'm puilling out the ig jade when i get back for a meal :)

Joel, would you take a picture of the 'hot plate' on the barbie? I'm not sure what that is. Maybe you just mean a section of the grill with smaller openings? (I'm probably just having a problem speaking Australian.)

The fish look delicious. I can't wait until it's Eating Time here!

The hot plate is solid steel (not slotted like the grill).
