Well this can be called redneck way of aquaponics. My idea is to have 3 cages for fish(2meters by 1 meter by 1 meter) in river .2 will hold together about 100 kg of carp or trout (if i learn how to reproduce it) and one for brood stock of 8 to 9 fishes.and having a small pond (like garden koi pond) in which would fish breed and fry would be grown until big enough for cages.and top it of water from pond and cages will be used for garden watering.what you think about idea let me know

Hmm, might not be legal depending on how your laws are - especially the cages in the river part. I'm sure it's different there but around here the authorities can get pretty upset with various issues like - pollution, disease introduction, introduction of non-native or invasive species.

Sounds pretty cagey to me :shifty: .......but it will be a quick way of removing all of the dead fish at the same time by dragging the cage out with a 4x4. :thumbright:

Carp and trout is native to this river and i dont think ther will be pollution i mean it is only 100 kg of fish for soo massive river and i wont use chemicals.just corn and other wheat and worms and insects for food

I know there is some fish farming in the Zeta river that uses cages but I think at this point we really don't know enough about your situation to say if it will work, if it's legal, makes sense (will flooding or the current be an issue) or is safe. Probably you're going to have to answer these based on what you find out locally :dontknow: . You may be better off pumping river water up to tanks instead of using cages but costs would be higher this way. Here's a little background information on aquaculture in Montenegro that the FAO put together -

It's far easier to feed, monitor, maintain and manage fish if you have them in a tank on land.
