This is what they looked like just before they became dinner. My usually vegan daughter polished off one of the jade perch. Says she feels they had a good life and as humane a death as is possible... and were produced in a relatively environmentally safe way - though she is well aware that aquaponics is far from a closed system.

would be grateful for any thoughts from others who have had perch of mixed sizes in one tank... as per my post above (yes... this is also a bump).

Autumn is looming and nearly time for another order of jade perch fingerlings. Have been eating smoked perch fairly regularly... another 3 last night.

Will be moving the remaining medium sized perch (the runts of the last fingerling batches) to my sump tank so the new fingerings aren't bullied.

And so that those medium sized perch don't become its dinner, last night I also ate the very last murray cod - a lovely looking and healthy fish 1.68 kg and so close to 50 cm I'm sticking with that number. One of the fillets was prepared Peruvian ceviche style. I'm no chef... or Peruvian... but my mate is :)

Photos follow.

And for those interested, in the back right of the first photo is beef brisket cured with koji spores at 30 degrees C for a few days then aged and dried in a fridge for about a month. And the smallest cheese is ricotta cured for a month with koji - tastes a bit like parmesan but less salty. both of these were made by my mate though I contributed to the technical aspects of controlling temperature and humidity.

Lots of food with local provenance (as I believe the foodies call it) on that table - including aquaponic herbs/chili in the ceviche and rice salad and loaf of sourdough freshly baked but just out of shot.

They look great... will upload a picture of a pencil case my daughter made me from the murray cod leather I've made.

Taste good too. But very slow growing compared to jade perch and I lost many of mine to cannabalism... I know there are techniques to manage but I don't have enough tanks (or maybe enough skill ). So that will be my last one
