The Great Tilapia Fry of 2015

Posted by Amy Storey on July 16, 2015

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.

The whole gang gathered to catch, clean, and fry up some tilapia which have been in our tanks for years.

Dr. Nate's daughter Charlotte was very interested in the fish. (Aquaponic water in her blood?)

Eventually we retreated from some foreboding rain clouds on the horizon. Well played, Nature.
