    Would like to know more about fish farming . I have a a 16000+ sq ft poultry barn that I am no longer using for poultry. I would like to use it to raise fish if possible.

      Kevin that is totally possible. I’m located in minneapolis and I’m starting a small scale aquaponics business. If you want some help let me know.
