Just an update on the situation at Challenger Tafe in Fremantle.
The Barramundi and Black Bream larval run has finished and the students produced approximately 20,000 Black Bream fingerlings and 50,000 Barramundi fingerlings. Some of these will be available to aquaponics enthusiasts in September onwards.
I have been asked by several people to repeat the hatchery tour later in the year as a number of people didn't know about the tour until too late. I intend to do another tour on Sunday 3 may at 2 p.m. The tour takes about an hour. If you are interested please send me a message via the personal email system that you wish to book a place as the numbers are limited to 15 people.
On another note Challenger Tafe will be running a weekend aquaponics course in June this year.
The course will attempt to cater from the veru beginner to those who wish to go into aquaponics on a commercial basis. It is planned that a demonstartion system using both the NFT and Raft system will be up and running at Murdoch Tafe later this year.

Excellent Tony, what would be the minimum sort of temperature for transporting Bream?

Black Bream will travel in 10-12 C water temperature. At this low temperature they will use less oxygen plus the cold water holds more oxygen anyway. When we send fish they are in plastic bags with one third by volume water and the rest is filled with oxygen. We aslo ad a chemical which neutralizes the ammonia. The ambient water temperature is usually in the 15-20 C range.
Last year we sent to Queenscliffe in Victoria 200 large (250 grams) Black Bream. Despite being bagged for up to 14 hours due to a flight delay all of the fish survived. So it is possible to send Black Bream by air over considerable distances
