Nice haul of Silvers, dandm. The omega-3s in that lot will keep you going for a while. Well done!

:wave1: Thanks all :wave1:

It is so satisfying to grow and eat your own food isn't it…..and in such a sustainable way. Just looked up rainfall in Jandakot and since the end of November there has been only 18mm…….not much, and the dirt gardens show the effects but not the AP!

Inspiring thread. I have considered on and off over the years converting my pool. If I finally went ahead it would certainly confirm my families fears...

Hi Deb And Mack I have been looking at the plans for the bathtub for worms and I had a few ideas to turn it into a bsf
farm instead what are your thoughts?

Angel- all we can say is……go for it!! :D It is the best use of the pool for us these days.

Rod, no experience with bsf so can't advise at all. Maybe post in the Backyard Farming forum, someone no doubt will be able to advise.

Harvested some trout yesterday from the AP fish tank, but forgot to weigh them! There were a couple at 33cm though, so certainly a good size. The freezer is a bit full at the moment with turkey, duck, rabbit, perch and trout.......with more trout to fit in (and eat!!).



For the swimming pool, our plan is to make a net catching system to try to reduce the silver perch in there-it is great to throw a line in and catch the odd one but they are very clever and the large ones only go for it once then stay away. A net will allow us to catch a few large ones without damaging the smaller ones.

Caught the last 25 trout from the AP yesterday- the largest was 673 grams- not bad for 5 months! There were quite a few over 600, most were over 500. We already have quite a few whole fish in the freezer so this lot have been filleted and smoked before freezing.

Time to give the tank and growbeds a bit of a clean up ready for the silver perch fingerlings for summer. At the end of summer they will join the other silver perch in the swimming pool and we will get more trout for winter!

The next job is to harvest some of the biggest silver perch from the pool.....some are 3 or 4 years old so are a good size!

Its a horrible job IMO but a week after once you have recovered, you have smoked trout for the rest of the year and great Xmas presents. Well done! Good idea about putting the silvers in the pool to grow out. Might do that myself...
