I am new to the forum and i came on board b/o my desire to start aquaponics. Are you really based here in NZ ? I was under the impression of Tilapia being forbidden to be raised here in NZ ?!? Did i get the wrong information?
I am based here in Rotorua, NZ and certainly would love to start aquaponics. However, I am not very interested in having hundreds of goldfish in my tanks. Instead, I am a keen cook and certainly would love some yummy freshwater fish on my BBQ over the next few years.
May I please have a brainstorm with this forum; especially in view of the NZ governments position paper on aquaculture (Aquaculture report) from July 2012?!?
