Bump, no really sure, I'm guessing the barra would make good dim sims when you harvest. I'd even consider the neighbours cat to save on transport :headbang:

I’ll happily provide my ex’s cat if the fish are hungry.

25% of world fisheries bi catch is used for pet food, i just want to address that imbalance. my town is plagued by cats i am just uncertain if i could use them as fodder, not in the legal sense but in a nutritional context.

I think it is worth a try. I personnally would like to know it is recent road kill, your nose and eyes would solve that, then meat grinder. I'd give it a crack but i swim in my fish tank.

Not sure. Too cold over winter for barra where i'm at. So i stick with silvers and yellowbelly. Want to try tandus, but worried about their posionious spines.
