Check the laws where you are first - they're quite possibly illegal.

Yup, and I suspect he'll find they are in Missouri as well

Just thought I'd throw that in there incase any one here was having a crazy notion........

I would be one of those that says Carp taste like Crap, but has never actually eaten em. It is one of those things you are told when young and that they are the devil and they should be caught and dispatched humainly (stabbed 50 or so times and left under a tree to rot!).

I would actually try one if it was prepared for me to eat just out of curiousity, but never going to keep one to cook that I catch because it is too much fun to go phsycho and butcher the stinking things!

Bred, grown and harvested in a tank style system might actually mean they wouldn't have a muddy taste that I have heard they are supposed to have since they live in the mud.

With big carp, take a fillet starting past the rib bones out to the tail and skin it, they're not too bad, but then again Ill eat anything that lives under water. 8)

Keeping them in clean water for a few days might help as well. I hear that soaking them in vinegar gets rid of the small bones. I think because you can't just gut them and throw on the BBQ that most people don't consider them worth eating.

Assuming that I have my info right Missouri is one of the few states that does allow carp. I found a place that will sell them to me if I want that's here.

I wonder if the muddy flavor is like catfish, everyone says it tastes muddy, but I love catfish. The bones in carp sound annoying, it seems there isn't the "perfect fish".

I'm still interested in seeing if anyone else has ever successfully bred anything else (other than tilapia) in an aquaponic system. And what's involved.

Does it need to be fish?...

Our Yabbies and Redclaw crayfish breed well in captivity. You must have something similar over there. It's my understanding that our Redclaw are available in the States.

Do you have to do anything special or will they just breed in the tank? It doesn't have to be fish, like I said, i'm just out looking for information. So i can make a more informed decision when i buy my next set of nutrient providers.

Nope!... put one lucky boy in with three or four girls... and the babies just happen!

When they're not doing the deed... keep the boys and girls seperated and you get faster growth and less cannibalism.

how do u tell the difference? I'll have to go through and do a little research on them to see if they're a viable option for me. Most important would be the temps they can survive in.
