With the deconstruction of our aquaponics system (making way for better things) comes many goodbyes. Some of those goodbyes are bittersweet. One that we said Wednesday night to ten old tilapia was neither bitter nor sweet. More... salty. With a hint of cayenne.
Waste not, want not, right?
The whole gang gathered to catch, clean, and fry up some tilapia which have been in our tanks for years.
And where there's fried fish, there should be beer.
Dr. Nate's daughter Charlotte was very interested in the fish. (Aquaponic water in her blood?)
Even pets came to help with the fry.
We had a great time!
Some of us might have even had leftover tilapia for breakfast this morning.
Eventually we retreated from some foreboding rain clouds on the horizon. Well played, Nature.
